    AMCTM 2017 : Special session on multi fidelity / multi level methods for uncertainty quantification

    Published on: Wed, 08 Feb 2017 10:06:00 CET by Severine
    The 11th edition of the International Conference on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing (AMTCM 2017) will be held in Glasgow (Scotland), August 29 -31, 2017.  The 11th AMCTM Conference is an IMEKO TC21 event.
    Following the first workshop held in Torino (1993, and in 2003 for the 10th anniversary), the previous AMCTM conferences took place in Oxford (1995, 1999), Berlin (1996), Lisbon (2000, 2005), Paris (2008), Göteborg (2011), and St. Petersburg (2014). Ten volumes on “Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology (and Testing)” were so far published by World Scientific based on the conference papers.

    The conference invites contributions relating to the general themes of
    - mathematical and statistical modelling
    - data analysis and uncertainty quantification
    - algorithms and computational methods relevant to metrology and testing.

    LNE (Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d'Essais) wishes to organize a special session on multi fidelity / multi level methods for uncertainty quantification with applications relating to metrology.

    Please contact Séverine Demeyer if you wish to contribute to this special session.

    An abstract up to 2 pages is due to March 6th 2017 and a full paper of 6 pages is due to the conference date (for selected abstracts). The first conference announcement is available for download at

    Hoping to see you soon,
    Séverine Demeyer
    Statistician at LNE
