Projet CHORUS, ateliers de restitution

Le bureau du GdR vous informe :


Les 18 et 19 octobre se tiendront deux journées de conférence présentant les progrès réalisés grâce au projet de recherche CHORUS (Common Horizon of Open Research on Uncertainty in Simulations) qui touche à sa fin.

Les méthodes et logiciels développés par les partenaires du projet offrent de nouvelles perspectives pour la prise de décision grâce à la simulation numérique en tenant compte de diverses sources d'incertitudes.

Valais/Wallis workshop on Artificial Intelligence (November 2017)

A conference on "small data" that might be of interest to the MASCOT-NUM community:
The next Valais/Wallis workshop on Artificial Intelligence will be held
in Martigny at the Idiap Research Institute on November 10th 2017.

For this second edition, the focus will be on challenges and opportunities
of "Small data". This interdisciplinary event will gather speakers and
participants having to cope with small data with motivating applications
in environment and geosciences, medicine, energy engineering, robotics and

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).
