The annual European Safety and Reliability Conference ESREL is an international conference under the auspices of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA).

The topic for ESREL 2018 is “Safe Societies in a Changing World” and our ambition for the conference is to advance in the understanding, modeling, and management of the complexity of the risk, safety and reliability fields characterizing our world, now and in the future. We aim at setting up a multidisciplinary platform to address the technological, societal and financial aspects of these fields. With the support of NTNU, we engage in broadening the scope of risk, safety and reliability from the technical to natural, financial and social aspects, focusing on inter-dependencies of functions and cascade of failures in complex systems.

The time for the conference is 17-21 June 2018. The conference venue will be at the main campus of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU.
