2019 Risk Conference San Antonio, Nov 12-13

Call for Papers

San Antonio, November 12-13, 2019

If you have an interesting application of Palisade software which you would like to present, please send a short abstract to Larkin Bohanan at The closing date for abstracts to be submitted is August 31st, 2019. If you would like to submit an abstract but need more time, just let us know.

To help you prepare a paper for submission, here is some additional information about the conference and the audience:

  • An in-depth look at your application

    The audience will mostly want an in-depth look at how you are using the software to address your specific needs. Of course, no proprietary information should be presented, but the more details about how you approached your risk challenge, the better.

  • Spreadsheet models are helpful

    The most successful presentations normally show an actual spread sheet model using @RISK or the other Palisade tools. The data and labels don’t matter as much as the illustration of the approach.

  • Present to a diverse audience

    The audience will be drawn from a wide range of job titles and industries. These are likely to include: cost estimators, risk managers, engineers, and project managers from sectors such as: insurance, finance, construction, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, mining, government, and many more.

  • Feedback on previous presentations

    Comments on the feedback forms from previous conferences include:
    "I like nuts-and-bolts presentations which show how people are doing advanced things.”
    "I would like to see more of how the models are set up and are presented to management."

  • Examples of successful presentations

    Here are three examples of highly rated presentations from previous Palisade Risk Conference.

If possible, please include either screen captures of your model(s) or send across the actual models themselves with your submission.

If you have any questions please email Larkin Bohanan at
