The risk sciences are an integration of several disciplines rooted in logic and plausible reasoning that have emerged for the purpose of quantifying and managing the risk of complex natural and engineered systems and processes.

Dr. Mihai Diaconeasa represented the B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences at the UC Forum on Innovative Mobility organized by the UC Institute of Transportation Studies (UC ITS) in Sacramento on Friday, November 30th.
After two years of the PSAM committee coordinating this event, the PSAM conferences return to Los Angeles; where UCLA’s Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences (GIRS) had the privilege to welcome several colleagues and their families, from all over the world, to the fourteenth rendition of the Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management (PSAM) Conference. GIRS was enthusiastic to host this event, since PSAM was founded by one of our very own Senior Fellows Dr. George Apostolakis. In 1991, the 1st PSAM Conference was organized in Beverly Hills, since then, the conferences have been held worldwide.
A one-day workshop was held in conjunction with the PSAM 14 International Conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management at the Luskin Convention Center on the UCLA campus September 16-21, 2018. The workshop was by invitation and involved approximately 30 scholars and practitioners from academia, research institutions, and the private sector to participate. The sponsors of the workshop were The B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles; The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom; and the Global Catastrophic Risk Institute, USA.
