Presentations from the Conference
Invited speakers, the prize speakers, minitutorials, and a selection of minisymposia presentations from the 2014 Conference on Uncertainty Quantification  have been captured and are available as slides with synchronized audio. In addition there are PDF’s of the slides available for printing. View presentation slides with synchronized audio.

The Hyatt Regency Savannah is approaching a sellout situation over the conference dates.

In the event you are unable to make your reservation at the Hyatt Regency Savannah over your preferred dates, please contact A Room with a View (1-800-780-4343) for assistance in making a reservation at a nearby hotel. They will secure the lowest available rate within a short distance to Hyatt Regency Savannah. This is a complimentary service being offered to attendees of the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification (UQ14).

In the event that rooms become available at Hyatt Regency Savannah due to cancellations, A Room With A View will notify conference attendees and help transfer reservations back to the Hyatt in the order in which they were booked.

Uncertainty quantification is key for achieving validated predictive computations in a wide range of scientific and engineering applications. The field relies on a broad range of mathematics and statistics groundwork, with associated algorithmic and computational development. This conference will bring together mathematicians, statisticians, scientists, and engineers with an interest in development and implementation of uncertainty quantification methods.  While applications of UQ in many fields will be represented at the conference, the focal application for UQ14 is Earth science. The goal of the meeting is to provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, and to enhance communication among this diverse group of technical experts, thereby contributing to future advances in the field.


Funding Agency


SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science, for their support of this conference.
