Roger Ghanem Elected the new Chair of SIAG

January 18, 2017

Dr. Roger Ghanem has been elected as the new Chair of the SIAM Activity Group (SIAG) on Uncertainty Quantification. The SIAM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification (SIAG/UQ) fosters activity and collaboration on all aspects of the effects of uncertainty and error on mathematical descriptions of real phenomena. It seeks to promote the development of theory and methods to describe quantitatively the origin, propagation, and interplay of different sources of error and uncertainty in analysis and predictions of the behavior of complex systems, including biological, chemical, engineering, financial, geophysical, physical and social/political systems. The SIAG/UQ serves to support interactions among mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, and scientists working in the interface of computation, analysis, statistics, and probability.
