Cambridge Conference on Catastrophic Risk 2022

CSER’s biennial conference is the leading regular gathering for scholars and policymakers working to understand and mitigate the greatest risks facing humanity. This year's conference will focus on three themes:

Future Risks, and how we can study them;
Real Catastrophes, and what we can learn from them; and
Global Solutions, and how we can achieve them.

The conference will feature presentations by: 

  • Tina Park (Partnership on AI)
  • Joachim Isacsson (Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre)
  • Robin Gorna (Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria)
  • Bryan Walsh (Vox)
  • Jenty Kirsch-Wood (UNDRR)
  • Oliver Letwin (KCL Project for Peaceful Competition)

Plus a programme of lectures, panels, workshops, and lightning talks, including in-depth presentation of the methods and findings from CSER's multi-year interdisciplinary project A Science of Global Risk.

This year's conference will take a hybrid format with on-line participation open to anyone, including access to all panels, lectures, and lightning talks.
