Upcoming Events

IMA Conference on Numerical Methods for Simulation

Venue: Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Speaker: Various
Date: 01 - 04 Sep 2015

Developments in numerical methods underpin simulations in many ways, for example in any area where high dimensional problems are governed by differential equations. Computational fluid dynamics has driven many developments in this area; however there is a wide range of application areas where the problems, and indeed solution techniques may be similar. Numerical methods are important in diverse areas such as geophysical modelling, fluid-structure interaction, high-dimensional dynamical systems, weather prediction, climate modelling, oil reservoir simulation, and so on. The conference will bring together application specialists, applied mathematicians, numerical analysts and computational scientists who develop and use numerical simulations. Applications which focus on data assimilation, inverse problems, uncertainties or control, which contain as a major component a high-dimensional forward model, will also be represented.

Third Annual International Workshop on Decision Making Under Deep Uncertainty

Venue: Deltares in Delft, the Netherlands
Speaker: Various
Date: 03 - 04 Nov 2015

Many investment and policy decisions have significant and often long-term consequences. Long-term objectives often require near-term decisions. Making sound near-term decisions is critical, yet we live in an increasingly unpredictable world governed by competing beliefs and preferences. When decision makers and analysts face a deeply uncertain future, they need more than traditional prediction- or scenario-based decision methods to help them choose among alternatives. Fortunately, there are new tools and methods that can help them make sound decisions in the face of these challenges.

This workshop seeks to foster a community of practice around decision making under deep uncertainty, in order to improve methods and tools, facilitate their use in practice, and ultimately encourage sound (public or private sector) decision making in our dynamic and changing world. The theme of this year’s workshop is “From Theory to Practice – Implementing Deep Uncertainty Methods and Tools”.

International Conference on Operational Research for Development 2015 (ICORD 2015)

Venue: Palm Village Hotel, Uswetakeiyava (North of Colombo) Sri Lanka
Speaker: Various
Date: 03 - 04 Dec 2015

Having started in 1992, ICORDs have been making impacts on IFORS in terms of its activities related to development and developing countries. Since 1992, it has been organised in Brazil, India, Italy, Philippines, South Africa, and Tunisia. ICORDs have been having participants from academic, research and practicing community with interest/ involvement/ experience in development related issues and/ or developing countries. As the workshop is rather intense in its deliberations, it usually has around 30 participants. Focussed areas include broader context of education, health, community welfare, energy, environment, urban planning, agriculture, and the like.
