More than 500 papers will be presented by authors from 30 countries
addressing risk assessment methods and applications involving many diverse
technologies such as aviation, space, process plants, nuclear, transportation,
medical, and computer and communication. These papers are peer reviewed
and meet a high standard of quality and originality. The proceedings, which
will be available at the time of conference in both hard cover and CD ROM
formats, will contain the full text of the papers presented. Topics address
new developments in methods, innovative applications, and use of risk analysis
in decision making and regulation. In addition to more than 130 technical
sessions devoted to paper presentations, many plenary sessions provide
a unique opportunity to hear expert assessments of the state of the art
in areas of common interest to the conference attendees. Details on the
technical program will be published in April. For more information, contact
Professor Ali Mosleh, by phone at (301)405-5215, or by email at email@example.com.

Gala Dinner (Wednesday, September 16)
A special evening is planned for Wednesday, September 16 onboard
the Intrepid Sea*Air*Space Museum which is docked on the Hudson River at
12th Avenue and 46th Street. The USS Intrepid served as an aircraft carrier
for 37 years through several campaigns and now is a National Historic Landmark
with displays and artifacts from 20th century history and technology. Cocktails

New York City skyline as backdrop. Bus transportation between the Intrepid

Several tutorials on fundamental and current issues in risk
assessment and management will be conducted during or before the Conference.
The tutorials will be taught by practicing experts in the field, and will
be managed under the direct responsibility of each individual organizer.
Course lectures and titles will be announced in the preliminary program
to be issued in April and posted on the PSAM 4 web site. Although not directly
organized by PSAM 4, several workshops and seminars are planned to take
place immediately before or after the Conference. These will be held at
venues convenient to those who wish to combine attendance at PSAM 4 with
