Big data and uncertainty quantification: statistical inference and information-theoretic techniques applied to computational chemistry

An incentive to use coarse-grained models is to use them for inference and control instead of the original (often intractable) model. Since coarse-grained models are always “wrong”, questions such as inference under model misspecification or goal-oriented uncertainty quantification (e.g. for control) come into play. This workshop will address such topics, with a special focus on predictive modelling, uncertainty quantification in molecular simulation and sensitivity analysis.

26 to 29 March 2019 - CIB premises (Room GA 3 21).
1 to 3 April 2019 - CECAM premises (Room BCH 3113).

ECCOMAS Award for the best PhD Thesis in 2015 to Dr. F. Negri (CMCS, EPFL)

Dr. Federico Negri, member of the Chair of Modelling and Scientific Computing, MATHICSE, SB, EPFL, has been awarded the ECCOMAS Award for one of the two best PhD Theses in 2015. The European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) attributes the award to highlight outstanding achievements of two young persons at the start of their scientific careers; the award will be handed over at the ECCOMAS 2016 Conference in Crete, Greece, June 5 – 10.

The thesis of Dr. Negri, titled “Efficient Reduction Techniques for the Simulation and Optimization of Parametrized Systems: Analysis and Applications” (EPFL thesis #6810, 2015) and developed under the supervision of Prof. A. Quarteroni and Prof. G. Rozza, has been awarded the prize for its outstanding contributions in developing an efficient Reduced Basis method for the high fidelity solution of computationally-intensive problems described by Partial Differential Equations, with application to blood flows, mass transport, and control.

Many congratulations to Federico!
