Developing a common framework/language in uncertainty analysis

7 October 2015, 12.30 PM - 7 October 2015, 2.30 PM

Professor Thorsten Wagener and Dr. Pia Sartor

1.11 in Merchant Venturers Building


This tutorial will be delivered by Dr. Pia Sartor and Professor Thorsten Wagener and will run from 12.30 pm - 2.30 pm.

Are you using a numerical model in your research? Are you interested in using methods and tools for uncertainty analysis, sensitivity analysis, model calibration and validation, or elicitation in your research? Then this tutorial is for you!

This is the first in a series of tutorials led by academics at the University of Bristol, in which they share methods and tools for model uncertainty analysis, using application examples from a wide variety of different disciplines.

This initial tutorial will form the basis for all other tutorials in the series.  It will include a discussion of types of models used in different disciplines and how this classification defines what methods of uncertainty analysis are most appropriate. Participants will develop a common language in an interactive manner during the tutorial, which will be used in subsequent tutorials when discussing building a simulator, model validation and verification, sensitivity analysis, uncertainty analysis and model prediction.


Numbers are limited and booking via Eventbrite is essential.

Eventbrite - Developing a common framework/language in uncertainty analysis

'Methods and Tools for Uncertainty Analysis of Numerical Models' tutorial series

This tutorial is part of a series of interactive tutorials‌ starting in October 2015 to bring together researchers at the University of Bristol from different faculties to share methods and tools for model uncertainty analysis.

Researchers will come away from the tutorials with resources to apply the methods and tools in their discipline.

Tutorials will include discussions, demonstrations and opportunities for networking. Resources such as papers, software and contacts will be provided so that participants can explore the method or tool in more details based on their application.

Tutorials are open to doctoral students, postgraduates, early career and established researchers.
