2013 SSAP Annual Review Symposium

(Albuquerque, NM, 27-28 June 2013)

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is pleased to announce the 2013 Stewardship Science Academic Programs (SSAP) Annual Review Symposium will be held June 27 - 28, 2013 at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown Hotel, 2600 Louisiana Boulevard Northeast, Albuquerque, NM.


The goals of this Symposium are to:

  • Highlight accomplishments of the academic programs. These presentations are part of the periodic reviews of the program to assess progress and ensure alignment with program objectives.

  • Promote interaction and help build user communities in areas of physical science relevant to stockpile stewardship.

  • Foster ties between participants, sponsors, and the NNSA National Laboratories and identify areas for future collaboration.

  • Encourage student and postdoctoral researcher involvement and interaction with the scientific community.


All grantees, new and continuing, should plan to attend. Only those with grants/centers that were continued from previous years will be expected to give an overview of their work to date. Presentations on topics of general interest will also be given by National Laboratory and/or DOE/NNSA personnel. All presentations and discussions will be unclassified.


Registration is required, but there will be no registration fee. The registration deadline for this Symposium is May 30, 2013.




(University of Exeter, 1-5 July 2013)

Topics will include:

  • Quantifying uncertainty of climate models

  • Comprehensive climate risk analysis

  • Forecasting climate tipping points

  • Improving projections of extreme events

  • Engaging with policy


Call for Abstracts and Registration

The deadline for contributed talks has passed, but participants are invited to submit abstracts for posters on related subjects.


The main organizer of the meeting is Peter Challenor, assisted by members of the CliMathNet management team. Please contact Emily Paremain if you have any questions:




(University of Nice, 1-4 July 2013)

7th International Conference on Sensitivity Analysis of Model Output

Sensitivity analysis and design of computer experiments

The next SAMO Conference will be organized in 2013 jointly with the MASCOT-NUM network on the occasion of its annual meeting. It will be hosted by the University of Nice, French Riviera.


SAMO conferences are devoted to advances in research on sensitivity analysis methods and their interdisciplinary applications, they are held every third year. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers involved in the developments and improvements of methods and strategies and users of sensitivity analysis in all disciplines of science, including physics, operations research, chemistry, biology, nanotechnology, engineering, environmental science, nuclear and industrial safety, economics and finance, etc.


Please not that the second registration deadline is 31st May 2013




(Santa Fe 8-11 September 2013)

The 2013 International Symposium on Nonlinear Theory and its Applications (NOLTA2013) will be held at Santa Fe, USA, September 8-11, 2013. The objective of the symposium is to provide a forum for exchange of the latest results related to nonlinear theory and its applications. This symposium will be designed to encourage the creation of new inter-continental collaborative initiatives.


The NOLTA is hosted by Research Society of Nonlinear Theory and its Applications, IEICE, in cooperation with Technical Group on Nonlinear Problems, IEICE, Technical Group on Circuits and Systems, IEICE, and IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.


Special Theme of NOLTA2013: Uncertainty Quantification, Nonlinearity and Multiscale Phenomena




(Abu Dhabi, 16-18 September 2013)

Organised by Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the fourth edition of the Reservoir Characterisation and Simulation Conference and Exhibition (RCSC) will focus on reservoir applications and different technologies for characterising, modelling, and simulating reservoir characteristics. The event will be of interest to all professionals who deal with reservoir characterisation and simulation challenges in fields throughout the Middle East and beyond, particularly those who wish to gain insight and a greater understanding of reservoir structure and dynamics.




(Amsterdam, 29 Sept - 2 Oct 2013)

The annual ESREL Conference stems from a European initiative merging several national Conferences into a major yearly conference under the auspices of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA).

The ESREL 2013 conference will provide a platform to scientists for presenting their work covering theories and methods in the field of risk, safety and reliability, and their application to a wide range of industrial, civil and social issues. ESREL 2013 will also be an opportunity for researchers and practitioners, academics and engineers to meet, exchange ideas and gain insight from each other.



Capturing Uncertainty in Geomodels - Best Practices and Pitfalls

(Aberdeen, 11-12 December 2013)

This two-day conference will explore how geomodelling tools should be used to best effect, and when such tools mislead or do not add value.  The focus will be on methods and workflows for capturing uncertainty throughout the geomodelling process, and on how to carry this uncertainty into the dynamic modelling realm.




SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification

(Savannah, Georgia, 31 March 31 - 3 April 2014)

This conference is being held in cooperation with the American Statistical Association (ASA), GAMM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification (GAMM AG UQ), and American Geophysical Union (AGU).

The call for submissions will be linked from their website in late May 2013.
