This book collects the papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Risk Analysis and Crisis Response (RACR-2019) held in Athens, Greece, on October 15-19, 2019. The overall theme of the seventh international conference on risk analysis and crisis response is Risk Analysis Based on Data and Crisis Response Beyond Knowledge, highlighting science and technology to improve risk analysis capabilities and to optimize crisis response strategy.

This book contains primarily research articles of risk issues. Underlying topics include natural hazards and major (chemical) accidents prevention, disaster risk reduction and society resilience, information and communication technologies safety and cybersecurity, modern trends in crisis management, energy and resources security, critical infrastructure, nanotechnology safety and others. All topics include aspects of multidisciplinarity and complexity of safety in education and research. The book should be valuable to professors, engineers, officials, businessmen and graduate students in risk analysis and risk management.

About the Editors

Chongfu Huang, President of Society for Risk Analysis - China, is a full professor at Beijing Normal University. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Beijing Normal University in 1993. As an advisor, he served for the Beijing Municipal Emergency Management Office to assess risks during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. His significant contributions to science involve the discovery of the principle of information diffusion shown in "Towards Efficient Fuzzy Information Processing" published by Springer in 2002. His significant contribution to society are that he established the Risk Analysis Council of China Association for Disaster Prevention in 2004, which is the unique academic organization authorized by the Chinese government for studying all risk issues. His current research interests include internet of intelligences in risk analysis for online services, intelligent mathematics and natural disasters. As Mercator Professor, he worked at the University of Dortmund, Germany, during August 2000 - August 2001. In recognition of the major national and international contributions he has made to the discipline of risk analysis, the Society for Risk Analysis awarded him the 2014 Fellow Award.

Dr Zoe S. Nivolianitou works as a senior researcher in the National Centre for Scientific Research "DEMOKRITOS" (NCSRD) in Athens, Greece. She is a Greek chartered Chemical engineer (1983-87, PhD and Diploma in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University in Athens, Greece) with further consolidated knowledge on the Risk and Safety Analysis of Chemical Plants with an over 30 year experience in the area of industrial safety. As a grantee of the European Commission, she spent four years at the JRC-ISPRA, Italy (1983-87). Her main research domains comprise Risk Analysis; Safety Auditing in the process Industry; Decision Making in Land Use Planning around chemical sites; Decision Support in Environmental Impact Analysis; and Human Factor analysis. Being among the principal investigators in several EC funded R&D projects (co-ordinator for DEMOKRITOS in five of them), she has also served in several international bodies (like the NATO and the EC) offering expertise in the above areas together with her consultancy to the Greek government in the evaluation of the ‘SEVESO" reports. She has published more than 70 scientific publications and technical reports and has co-authored four books. Dr Nivolianitou is a member (through her Institute) at SRA-Europe and ESRA.

About the Series

Communications in Cybernetics, Systems Science and Engineering – Proceedings

Communications in Cybernetics, Systems Science and Engineering - Proceedings (CCSSEP) is a cross-disciplinary series devoted to theoretical and applied research contributions to cybernetics, systems science and engineering. The series aims to publish the highest quality conference proceedings on the most recent advances and innovative applications in the relevant areas of investigation, catering to a rapidly growing worldwide interest in a cybernetic and systemic methodology with an ever-increasing capacity to deal with new challenges in a way that traditional science can not. The CCSSEP series will consolidate the worldwide findings in systems science and engineering and aims to become a comprehensive theoretical, practical, international, multi- and interdisciplinary database of, reference work on and guide to issues in these fields of research and the strategies required for better implementation in the context of environmental protection and sustainable social and economic development. Carefully edited conference proceedings, featuring contributions from leading scholars and engineers, will make valuable contributions to a deeper understanding of human, artificial and natural systems as well as of issues that confront the modern world. Communications in Cybernetics, Systems Science and Engineering - Proceedings is committed to nurturing worldwide conversations about cybernetic and systemic approaches for the betterment of human lives and aims to make a substantial contribution to rethinking science as well as engineering applications of cybernetic and systemic methods in all types of settings.

The series aims at professionals, academics and students in the theoretical and applied fields of cybernetics, systems science and engineering, researchers and consultants in cybernetics and systems, computer and information scientists, development and systems engineers, mathematicians, librarians, management cyberneticists and systemists, medical scientists, educators, advanced research workers, intelligent and manufacturing engineers in industry and researchers at universities with an interest in the application of modeling, simulation, optimization and control to specific systems. It will also prove useful to leading decision- and policy-makers, governmental policy-makers, business leaders, and international bodies like the United Nations family and the international and regional development banks, financial institutions and donors associated with technical and economic cooperation in developing countries.
