2017 annual meeting: DMDU across mulitiple scales. Submit an abstract and register

Please save the date for the 2017 DMDU meeting. The meeting will be hosted by the Oxford Martin School in Oxford, UK, on 14-15 November 2017, with a training on DMDU methodologies scheduled for 13 November 2017. For more information on the workshop, visit the website. The 2017 annual meeting theme is dealing with deep uncertainty in decision making across multiple scales. The workshop will tackle the challenges of decision making at many different scales, from the perspective of deep uncertainty. The theme of multiple scales embraces spatial scales, temporal scales and scales of governance.

Rules and Processes of the Society

The Leadership Team has drafted and discussed the Rules and Processes document for the Society. The document forms the basis of the operations of the Society and describes, amongst others, membership procedures, the responsibilities and duties of the Leadership Team and the election process.
 
The procedure for adoption of the Society’s Rules and Processes is as follows:
  • The document is available for download Rules_DMDU
  • Comments can be sent to dmdu.rules[at]gmail.com.
  • The Leadership Team will discuss the comments from the members in the September meeting of the team and the draft document will be updated to a final draft. An overview of all comments will be posted on the Society’s website.
  • The Leadership Team will have a final discussion on the final draft document and adopt the document as Provisional Rules & Processes that will be used for the elections.
With this procedure the Leadership Team hopes to have found a balance between efficiency, practicality and participation of the members in developing the Rules and Processes for the Society.

EPSRC Decision Making Under Uncertainty – London Meeting

EPSRC, ESRC, AHRC and NERC are leading on behalf of all research councils a workshop which aims to initiate the building of a cross cutting multidisciplinary community focussed on decision making under uncertainty. The workshop will involve presentations by a number of key speakers in this area and will provide further information in regards to the aspirations for the network.

The research councils anticipate that a call for networks in this area will go live shortly. The purpose of this call will be to develop and build widespread linkages between disciplines related to decision making under uncertainty and to grow a multi-disciplinary community in this space. The network(s) will be expected to work with user organisations to analyse real world systems and identify where multi-disciplinary research can develop new approaches to improve decision making under uncertainty.

For more information about decision making under uncertainty, please refer to the scoping reports from the following events;EPSRC-led ‘Defining a research strategy for uncertainty‘ roundtable (September 2015), the RCUK Risk workshop (March 2015), the Dstl-sponsored “Calculating and Communicating Uncertainty” conference (January 2015), the EPSRC Maths for Public Policy series of events (2014/2015), the Government Chief Scientific Advisor’s report “Innovation: Managing Risk, Not Avoiding it” (2014) and Imperial College-led “Decision Making Under Risk and Uncertainty” workshop.

Examples of disciplines we are seeking to engage include Applied Mathematics, Engineering, Operational Research, Economics, Finance, Environmental Science, Management Science, Arts and Humanities, Political Science, Computer Science, Psychology, Risk, Medical Informatics, Statistics and Applied Probability, Data Science and Information Science.

Examples of topics that we would expect to be addressed include algorithms, data science, decision making, sensors, forecasting, risk management, financial regulation, consumer behaviour, heuristics, macroeconomic modelling, multi-scale/multiphysics modelling, engineering design, visualisation, large scale manufacturing, climate change, energy challenges and natural hazards.

Please register to attend using the form below and ensure that you provide your contact details alongside a key challenge area you are interested in discussing in order to facilitate networking at the event.

We will endeavour to have representation at this event from a breadth of disciplines, institutes and organisations. Therefore, places at the event may be limited. However, attendance at the event is not compulsory in order to be involved in any future network.

The deadline for submitting expressions of interest to attend this event is Friday 06 May at 17:00.
