The GAMM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification organizes an outreach workshop "Frontiers of Uncertainty Quantification in Engineering (FrontUQ)" on 6-8 September 2017 in Munich, Germany. This workshop brings together mathematicians and engineers working in Uncertainty Quantification.
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.
Here are some abstracts of papers, free for downloading:
- A statistical approach for building sparse polynomial chaos expansion
- Effect of geometrical uncertainties on the performance of heat exchangers using an efficient POD-based model reduction technique
- An efficient non-intrusive reduced basis model for high dimensional stochastic problems in CFD
- Heat Transfer optimization of a ribbed surface using surrogate-assisted genetic algorithms
The European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) is pleased to announce the ECCOMAS Congress 2016 (VII European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering) to be held in Crete, Greece in June 5-10, 2016.

UMRIDA (Uncertainty Management for Robust Industrial Design in Aeronautics) organizes its workshop on Robust Design Optimization (RDO) at the VUB. UMRIDA is a Level 1 collaborative project within the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme. It involves a consortium of 21 partners from the industrial aeronautics sector, leading research institutes and universities as well as SME's.
Our EUFORIA colleague Stefan Vandewalle from KU Leuven Center of Excellence on Optimization in Engineering (OPTEC) is in the organisation committee of the European Conference on Computational Optimization (EUCCO), edition 2016. More information on the EUCCO 2016 website!
The European Conference on Computational Optimization (EUCCO) series was started in 2004. The first edition took place in Dresden, and was followed in 2007 by a conference in Montpellier, and in 2013 by a conference in Chemnitz. The 2016 edition will be held in Leuven, Belgium.
PhD student Jolan Wauters from UGent got rewarded for his poster on the effect of wing fences to prevent airplane crashes. You can download his winning poster here!
Congrats Jolan !
