> This week-long workshop will provide an introduction to the field of uncertainty quantification (UQ) to students from the mathematical and statistical sciences. Undergraduates majoring in engineering and physical sciences are also invited to apply. This hands-on workshop will introduce the students to a variety of statistical and mathematical techniques used to make forecasts and/or to provide control in systems where uncertainty uncertainties are unavoidable. The workshop will extend concepts learned in undergraduate linear algebra, statistics, and differential equations courses; no prior experience with UQ is necessary or expected. 
> 
> The students will make use of Bayesian concepts to develop controllers for  specific stochastic dynamical systems. Working in teams, the students will be implementing simple variational, Kalman, and Monte Carlo techniques and compare these in their ability to track data-driven dynamics. The students will work in groups of three under the supervision of SAMSI researchers, visitors and postdocs.

> The deadline to apply is April 20, 2012.
