Date: Monday, May 11

Time: 12:30 - 4:30 pm

Location: The Westin Kansas City (the conference hotel)



Seminar Informa

In this seminar, students will be introduced to Uncertainty Quantification and the application of statistical experimental design to modeling and simulation applications. The current M&S paradigm provides deterministic solutions to problems that involve some degree of uncertainty or variability in their real world application. Many variables are assumed which impact model fidelity and confidence in output. Uncertainty quantification evaluates and quantifies the impact of the variability or uncertainty in the inputs on the solution derived from the analysis; provides the means to derive a range of potential outcomes rather than a single data point; and provides a means to perform sensitivity analyses and optimization of independent variables to yield desired responses. The approach can be implemented with structural analyses, CFD, electrical analyses, materials design tools, or any other deterministic or low noise modeling and simulation tools.


There is no additional fee to participate in this seminar, however, registration to attend will be required. You may register using the overall Fuze registration and selecting this option. Registration is limited to the first 50 attendees on a first come, first served basis.

Please note, registration to this seminar is limited to U.S. and Canadian citizens and intending citizens (formerly "resident aliens") of either country who are registered with the U.S./Canada Joint Certification Program (JCP) only. There are no exceptions to this rule. All attendees must submit a security clearance by Monday, April 27, 2020. To download and submit the security clearance form, please visit our Security Clearance webpage. 

Onsite check-in will begin at 12:00pm. More information will be provided to seminar attendees at a later time.
