At this year’s JSM in Miami Beach, Florida, the Section on Risk Analysis is sponsoring numerous events and invites you to participate in them. The section’s annual joint mixer with the Section on Statistics in Defense and National Security is August 1, from 6–8 p.m. This will be a festive event, in which colleagues and friends have a chance to mingle and discover the most recent happenings within both sections. At the mixer, the section will recognize its two student/young researcher awardees.

In addition to the joint mixer, the section will sponsor the following two invited sessions, two topic-contributed sessions, and three contributed sessions. For details, refer to the online program.
