Cabot Institute Event: Black Box Workshop: Multidisciplinary approaches to uncertainty

11 July 2013, 9.00 AM - 11 July 2013, 9.00 AM

Venue: Peel Lecture Theatre, School of Geographical Sciences, University Road, Bristol, BS8 1SS

Researchers from diverse disciplines will share their approaches in several areas of uncertainty assessment, in particular: statistical modelling of complex data and simulators, data assimilation (combining data with simulations), structural uncertainty in complex simulators, pragmatism, and the role of expert judgement.

Although many of the talks relate to Cabot Institute and environmental research, we particularly value attendance by researchers in other areas for their perspective. We will ask speakers to explain their work in abstract "black box" terms, suitable for a general audience, so researchers from different disciplines can understand each other and exchange expertise.

Refreshments, including lunch, will be provided.

A restaurant for dinner on 11 July 2013 will be booked although this is not funded.

Places are limited. Please email Tamsin Edwards to register, indicating whether you would like to come for dinner.

Note: This is a two day event on 11 and 12 July 2013.
