Loss Prevention Symposia

The next Loss Prevention symposium will be in Freiburg, Germany in June 2016
Every three years the WP LP organize a 2½ day international symposium to promote safety and loss prevention. The WP LP is the scientific committee for the symposium.

The venue for the symposium is usually selected by the WP LP about three and half year before the event based on bids from interested local engineering associations, and the event is officially announced at the end of the previous symposium.

A call for contribution is usually issued about 2 years before the symposium. Contribution are initially reviewed by the scientific committee based on a one page abstract, and divided into 40 minute oral presentations, 12 minutes oral presentation and poster presentation.
