ETICS summer school (october 2017)

The next summer school ETICS (École thématique sur les Incertitudes en calcul scientifique, Research school on Uncertainty in scientific computing) will be held this year in Porquerolles (France) during the first week of october (1-6 October 2017).

The goal of this school is to develop the skills of researchers and engineers in the domain of uncertainty  management  of  computer  codes.  Some  of  the  lectures  will  be  followed  by practical computer works. Collaborative works, round tables and poster sessions will promote exchanges between  participants.  The  prerequisites to  possess  are  the  mathematical  bases  of the uncertainty quantification science.

  • Max Gunzburger (Florida State University, USA)
  • Luc Pronzato (CNRS - Sophia Antipolis, Nice)
  • Sébastien Destercke (Université de Technologie de Compiègne)
  • Pierre-Henri Wuillemin (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris)
  • Nicolas Bousquet (EDF R&D, Chatou).

The full program can be found here:
Registration fees: 900€ - Link for registration:

The number of participants is limited. Registration will be closed once the limit has been reached.

AMCTM 2017 : Special session on multi fidelity / multi level methods for uncertainty quantification

The 11th edition of the International Conference on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing (AMTCM 2017) will be held in Glasgow (Scotland), August 29 -31, 2017.  The 11th AMCTM Conference is an IMEKO TC21 event.
Following the first workshop held in Torino (1993, and in 2003 for the 10th anniversary), the previous AMCTM conferences took place in Oxford (1995, 1999), Berlin (1996), Lisbon (2000, 2005), Paris (2008), Göteborg (2011), and St. Petersburg (2014). Ten volumes on “Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology (and Testing)” were so far published by World Scientific based on the conference papers.

The conference invites contributions relating to the general themes of
- mathematical and statistical modelling
- data analysis and uncertainty quantification
- algorithms and computational methods relevant to metrology and testing.

LNE (Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d'Essais) wishes to organize a special session on multi fidelity / multi level methods for uncertainty quantification with applications relating to metrology.

Please contact Séverine Demeyer if you wish to contribute to this special session.

An abstract up to 2 pages is due to March 6th 2017 and a full paper of 6 pages is due to the conference date (for selected abstracts). The first conference announcement is available for download at

Hoping to see you soon,
Séverine Demeyer
Statistician at LNE
