The 9th SPU Workshop is part of the International Conference in Computational Science (ICCS ​2022)​, which will be held 21-23 June 2022 in London, UK​. The theme for ICCS 2022 is “The Computational Planet". ICCS is an ERA A-ranked conference series. Vassil Alexandrov, Chief Science Officer at the STFC Hartree Centre, will co-chair the workshop alongside Aneta Kartaivanova, IICT, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

Problems with uncertainty need to be tackled in an increasing variety of areas, from physics, chemistry, engineering, computational biology and environmental sciences to decision making in economics and social sciences. Uncertainty is unavoidable in almost all systems analysis, risk analysis, decision making and modelling and simulation. How uncertainty is handled and quantified shapes the integrity of the analysis, and the correctness and credibility of the solution and the results.

With the advent of exascale computing, big data analytics and scalable AI, larger and larger problems - often requiring hybrid approaches - have to be tackled in a systematic way at scale. The problem of solving such problems with uncertainties and quantifying the uncertainties becomes even more important due to the variety and scale of uncertainties in such problems.

The focus of the workshop will be on methods and algorithms for solving problems with uncertainties, stochastic methods and algorithms for solving problems with uncertainties, methods and algorithms for quantifying uncertainties such as dealing with data input and missing data, sensitivity analysis (local and global), dealing with model inadequacy, model validation and averaging, software fault-tolerance and resilience and more.

We look forward to seeing you there!​​
