Opportunities and challenges in uncertainty quantification for complex interacting systems
Date:3/6/2009

plex Interacting Systems, will provide a forum where issues of uncertainty quantification and model validation in predictive science will be addressed. The Workshop will bring together leading scientists from physics-based modeling, network science and social networks to explore the fundamental similarities and differences in the challenges facing them. Challenges and opportunities will be identified and a community of researchers and collaborators seeded.

Challenges with characterizing and propagating uncertainty, and validating predictions permeate network science in general and social networks in particular. Metrics for validation and mathematical constructs that are useful for describing uncertainties are lacking, together with a practical interpretation of uncertainty and predictability. It is widely believed that challenges in the verification and validation of network science and social networks presents a serious impediment to the utility of these methodologies as incisive tools for decision support and societal well-being.

The Workshop will revolve around survey lectures and break-out sessions and will culminate in a report that summarizes participants perspective on challenges and opportunities in developing a rational path forward for Uncertainty Quantification and Model Validation in the context of complex interacting systems.

The Workshop will be chaired by Roger Ghanem and Demetrios Spanos of USC, and will be hosted in the Davidson Center on the Campus of the University of Southern California.
