This conference is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification.

This conference is being held in cooperation with the American Statistical Association (ASA), the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI), and the United States Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM).

The invited speaker presentations, the prize speaker presentations, and a selection of minisymposia presentations from the 2012 Conference on Uncertainty Quantification have been captured and are available as slides with synchronized audio.  In addition there are PDF’s of the slides available for printing.  View presentation slides with synchronized audio.


Visit the Submissions page for additional information on how to participate in the conference.

If you are tweeting about the conference, please use the designated hashtag to enable other attendees to keep up with the Twitter conversation and to allow better archiving of our conference discussions.  The hashtag for UQ12 is #SIAMUQ12.

A Facebook link to RSVP to the conference, connect with other attendees and find roommates will be posted here in January 2012.

Uncertainty quantification is key for achieving validated predictive computations in a wide range of scientific and engineering applications.  The field relies on a broad range of mathematics and statistics groundwork, with associated algorithmic and computational development. This conference strives to bring together an interdisciplinary mix of mathematicians, statisticians, scientists, and engineers with an interest in development and implementation of uncertainty quantification methods.  The goal of the meeting is to provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, and to enhance communication among this diverse group of technical experts, thereby contributing to future advances in the field.
