The 8th SPU Workshop is part of the International Conference in Computational Science (ICCS 2020), which will be held 3-5 June 2020 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The theme for ICCS 2020 is “20 Years of Computational Science”. 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.
Submit and present your work
The workshop is inviting submissions for strategic, short and full papers presenting Domain Applications and Case Studies in the context of the computational science, high performance computing (HPC), big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) ecosystems. The area of interest includes but is not limited to the following topics:
- methods and algorithms for solving problems with uncertainties
- stochastic and hybrid (stochastic/deterministic) methods and algorithms for solving problems with uncertainties
- advanced Data Science/AI/Computational Science) methods and algorithms for solving problems with uncertainties
- methods for quantifying uncertainties
- quantifying uncertainties while dealing with big data
- quantifying uncertainties while dealing with model inadequacy, model validation etc.
- sensitivity analysis
- case studies showing efficient methods and approaches solving problems with uncertainties
