• UNCECOMP 2017 2nd International Conference on Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Sciences and Engineering

    The objective of UNCECOMP Conference is to reflect the recent research efforts and progress towards analysis and design processes with uncertainty quantification, with emphasis in multiscale analysis and design of complex systems. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers seeking interactions among stochastic methods and computational mechanics in order to obtain reliable predictions of the behavior of physical systems.
