UCM Conference Series

UCM stands for Uncertainty in Computer Models. A number of UCM web pages were established as a result of additional funding being awarded to the MUCM project group, part of which funding was to enable MUCM to provide a focus and services for the wider community of people active in this field. We were also building on the successful UCM2010 and UCM2012 conferences, which brought together many people with interests in computer model uncertainties. The UCM pages were originally accessed through the MUCM Project website, but have now been built on and incorporated into the MUCM Community website.


Our community is now called MUCM, altthough we had previously called it UCM, to distinguish it from the MUCM project, hence the UCM Conference Series. Through the MUCM Community and its Steering Group, we have continued the UCM conference series with UCM 2014 being held in July 2014 and there are definite plans for an UCM 2016.
