Mailing List

Current number of UCM mailing list subscriptions : 361






In order to keep up to date with what's happening within the MUCM Community, we will be utilising the established UCM mailing list.


UCM stands for Uncertainty in Computer Models, and this mailing list is for announcements and general discussion regarding statistical methods for quantifying, analysing and managing the uncertainties in the predictions of complex mechanistic models and anything else that may be of interest to the MUCM Community.


The list was established as a result of additional funding being awarded to the MUCM group, part of which funding is to enable MUCM to provide a focus and services for the wider community of people active in this field.

What can you tell us about?

  • PAPERS: any papers/reports (old, new, preprints) that the community might like to know about, whether by you or other people (please include full citations and download links).

  • EVENTS: any conferences/workshops/courses/events which have a UCM component (please give web links, titles, dates, location, description)

  • TALKS: any talks/presentations you are giving or have given (please give presentation download links).

  • IDEAS: any ideas you may have that you want to share with/ and get feedback from the community, as well as any ideas you may have for improving communication and building this community.

  • ANYTHING ELSE: please just tell us about your work!  This is such a diverse field, with activities and publications spread across so many different disciplines, that it really is difficult for anyone to be aware of all that is going on. This kind of communication is absolutely vital to bring the community together and to share knowledge. You may think your work is not terribly exciting but there are others out there who don't know about it and really will be interested.
