[09/11/2021] 42nd Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering and 3rd Pan American Congress on Computational Mechanics (CILAMCE-2021 & PANACM 2021)

Dear Colleagues

We would like to invite you to submit a paper for a Minisymposium on “Uncertainty Quantification and Data-Driven Approaches To Stochastic Systems In Computational Science And Engineering” at the 42nd Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering (CILAMCE-2021) and 3rd Pan American Congress on Computational Mechanics. The congress will take place in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil Nov 9 - 12, as a hybrid meeting with in-person and virtual options. We have indicated that our mini-symposium will be virtual.

Computational methods for Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) are fundamental in the development and innovation of modern-day engineering. Processes and design in the presence of uncertainty are involved and usually pose particular challenges for computational methods. Over the last decades, significant research efforts seek to develop UQ computational techniques that overcome difficulties encountered in real engineering applications. Therefore, the analysis of hierarchical approaches to stochastic systems and data-driven techniques in computational engineering is the primary interest in this mini-symposium. The scope of the mini-symposium is broad covering: stochastic processes, stochastic differential equations, stochastic partial differential equations, Bayesian optimal design of experiment, Multilevel Monte Carlo, Multi-Index Monte Carlo, Quasi Monte Carlo, stochastic collocation, Gaussian processes, metamodels, data assimilation, variance reduction techniques, stochastic optimization, stochastic control, machine learning techniques. Theoretical approaches and practical applications are welcome. The organizers of this mini-symposium strive to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss current issues concerning UQ computational methods development.

Many exciting sessions are planned at the conference around several different themes. We encourage you to look at the conference website for details of this and other Minisymposia (https://cilamce-panacm2021.com.br/).

If you are interested in participating please submit an abstract via the conference website by April 30th, 2021. Important dates are given below.

Important Dates:
• Deadline for Abstract submission: April 30, 2021
• Notification of Abstract acceptance: May 15, 2021
• Deadline for Full-paper submission: July 31, 2021
• Notification of Full-paper acceptance: September 15, 2021
• Deadline for Early Registration Fee: until September 30, 2021

November 9-12, 2021 – CILAMCE-2021

We encourage you to forward this information to others who may be interested, and we hope to see you (virtually or in-person) in Rio de Janeiro for CILAMCE-2021.
