Impacts of Global Change on Pest Emergence Risks for Plant Health in Europe
April 23-24, 2018
The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES), in collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO), are organising a conference on 23-24 April 2018 on “The impact of global change on the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe”, which will be held at the Maison de la RATP, in Paris. This conference aims to bring together researchers, public decision-makers and stakeholders in the environmental and agricultural production fields, to take stock of the subject and bring forth new ideas on the assessment and management of phytosanitary risks in response to the challenges of the coming years.
Quantitative Risk Analysis with R
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
May 1-4, 2018
Join us this spring for our QRA with R training. Our class will focus on applied risk modeling methods using the R statistical language and will cover the core principles of QRA and Monte Carlo simulation modeling. Both Bayesian and frequentist methods will be discussed.
This class is very popular with a variety of participants, including those without prior risk analysis experience; current R users who would like to build risk analysis and/or simulation models without using commercial tools; risk analysts who would like to migrate spreadsheet models to the R platform; and even seasoned risk analysts who would like to learn new skills. However, prior experience using R or other simulation tools is not required.

9th International Conference on the Science of Exposure Assessment
September, 24-26, 2018
X2018 will provide a platform for international experts to exchange knowledge in exposure assessment sciences for human health studies. X2018 will contribute to the development of state-of-the-art methodologies and practices, and thereby improve our knowledge to effectively assess and control exposure to hazardous agents in the work environment, at home and elsewhere in the general environment.
