It is our pleasure to invite you and your co-workers to present your research work at the 6th International Symposium on Uncertainty Quantification and Stochastic Modeling (Uncertainties 2023), to be held in Fortaleza, Brazil, on July 30 – August 4, 2023.

This event is a sequel of the 5th International Symposium on Uncertainty Quantification and Stochastic Modeling (Uncertainties 2020), held in Rouen (France) from June 29th to July 3rd 2020.

After the result of a survey on the interest of the public on remote and in-person participation, the organizing committee decided to perform this edition of the Uncertainties in 100% virtual form. Guidelines for this remote participation, including subscription forms, fees, etc., will be shared soon on this web site with all the authors and interested participants.

As for Uncertainties 2023, all participants are invited to prepare a presentation in video format that will be posted on the Uncertainties channel (YouTube and DailyMotion).

Uncertainties 2023 is organized on behalf of the

  • Scientific Committee on Uncertainty in Mechanics (Mécanique et Incertain) of the AFM (French Society of Mechanical Sciences)
  • Scientific Committee on Stochastic Modeling and Uncertainty Quantification of the ABCM (Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences)
  • SBMAC (Brazilian Society of Applied Mathematics)

After the first meeting held in Maresias, Brazil in 2012, Uncertainties became a bi-annual event in order to create a permanent forum for the discussion of academic, scientific and technical aspects of uncertainty quantification in mechanical systems. Previous meetings were held in Rouen (2014), Maresias (2016), Florianópolis (2018), Rouen (2020). The pandemic prevented the conference from being held in 2022, so the conference was postponed to 2023.

The main goal of Uncertainties 2023 is to provide a forum for discussion and presentation of recent developments concerning academic, scientific and technical aspects of uncertainty quantification in engineering, including research, development and practical applications, which are strongly encouraged.

The event will provide an appropriate atmosphere for the exchange of experiences, with sufficient free time for scientific connections, interactions with past and future collaborators, and so on. Hence, there will be no parallel sessions.

All presented full papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings. Conference Proceedings will be published by Springer in the series “ABCM series on Mechanical Sciences and Engineering” (indexed).

English is adopted as the official language of the event, to be used for the written articles and in the oral presentations.

Fortaleza is the capital of the state of Ceará. It is a tourist city with many possibilities for temporary or tourism accommodation, namely hotels or rentals.
