The Role of Uncertainty in Mathematical Modelling of Pandemics, Cambridge, UK, 8 – 10 February 2022

The Role of Uncertainty in Mathematical Modelling of Pandemics, Cambridge, UK, 8 – 10 February 2022

The VECMA toolkit (VECMAtk) we have developed to support VVUQ for multiscale applications has been made available to the community in stages throughout the project, under an open source release with a final updated release scheduled in January 2022. The toolkit has been equipped with UQPs and VVPs which are optimized and flexibly applicable for multi-petaflops and exascale performance multiscale computing.

We are actively pursuing expanding our user community and application areas so that the results produced from VECMA generate their impact in other projects that are not directly related to VECMA and its personnel.

We begin to see the potential impact of the multiscale simulations, which promotes the use of VVUQ toolkit across a wide range of scientific domains, as well as within new projects recently emerged as a result of collaborations.

We are co-organising this three-day event with The Newton Gateway to Mathematics, Cambridge, UK.

The event will focus primarily on pandemic related challenges but will also feature sessions on wider application areas and advanced methods of VVUQ. Sessions will be spread across the three half days as follows:

  • VVUQ Fundamentals with a Focus on Epidemiology and Pandemics
  • Wider Applications of VVUQ Methods
  • Challenges and Advanced Methods for Epidemiological Modelling

There will also be the opportunity to join two one-hour tutorials on the open-source software toolkits for VVUQ , which will run in the mornings on days two and three.

Attendance at this event is free of charge and to register please follow this link.

This workshop will take place at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. Further information about the venue will be updated near time and available here. Nearby en-suite B&B accommodation is reserved and further information will be provided upon registration. The aim is to run these as in-person events. There will however be a virtual option for those unable to attend physically.
