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. We are looking forward to welcoming you there.
Modelling activities are steadily increasing in all scientific disciplines, ranging from financial to environmental assessments. Sensitivity Analysis is crucial both in the modeling phase and in the interpretation of model results. It contributes to model development, model calibration, model validation, reliability and robustness analysis, decision-making under uncertainty, quality-assurance, and model reduction.
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.
