The Event

The AGUQ of GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik) will hold its third stand-alone workshop on March 12.-14., 2018 at the Technical University Dortmund, Germany. Like its larger sister-organization SIAM’s SIAG UQ, the GAMM AGUQ coordinates UQ-related activities within GAMM. Its members come also from many non-German speaking countries in Europe. As with previous workshops, the scientific part of the meeting will consist of invited talks on recent developments in theory and application of uncertainty quantification methods as well as a poster session for which particularly PhD candidates and post- docs are encouraged to present their current research and work. In addition to the general part of the workshop there will be several featured topics. They cover on one hand recent trends within the field of uncertainty quantification, and on the other hand topics from neighbouring fields, with promising connections and applications in UQ. A particular aim of these featured topics is to bring people from different areas together and enable a cross-fertilization of ideas across different communities.

Confirmed invited speakers


Local organizing team

Michela Egidi, Albrecht Seelmann, Christoph Schumacher, Matthias Täufer, Janine Textor, and Ivan Veselić

Organizer of the R-tutorial

Hanno Gottschalk


Covariance functions or semivariograms are an important input to uncertainty quantification structures. In this hands-on tutorial, based on the R-package gstat, we review visualization or geostatistical data, interpolation, empirical variograms and variogram estimation as well as kriging and conditional simulation. As an advanced topic, multivariate covariogram estimation is reviewed as well.
