4th International Conference on Uncertainty in Mechanical Engineering

About ICUME

At ICUME, the participants will discuss methods and technologies to describe, evaluate and control uncertainty in mechanical engineering applications. International scholars and specialists will come together to provide a broad forum to discuss the description, evaluation, avoidance, elimination of and adaptation to uncertainty.

It is the aim to control uncertainty throughout the system’s complete lifetime in planning, development, production and usage of mechanical structures and systems. Engineers, mathematicians, legal experts and other areas of expertise working in uncertainty evaluation exchange latest research results and application of uncertainty control.

Research areas

The following research areas are investigated at ICUME 2020:

i. Mastering uncertainty by digitalization

ii. Uncertainty consideration in manufacturing and production

iii. Resilient technical systems

iv. Responsability for autonomuos systems

v. Uncertainty quantification

vi. Optimization under uncertainty

ICUME 2018 was mainly focused on Mechanical Engineering, but it comprised a wide variety of perspectives from where the uncertainty concept was analyzed, presented and discussed, and that helped to provide a multidisciplinary view on the main issues that affect uncertainty and to trigger ideas connecting different issues and techniques.

Join the conference

There are two possibilities to join the conference:

  1. First possibility is to organize your own minisymposium. Choose your topic and invite three to four speakers. Send us a short proposal including abstracts, titles and presenters of your minisymposium. After a successful review process we’re going to give you your session.
  2. Second way to join ICUME is to give a talk in a further session. Therefore you have to submit an abstract of your talk. After a review qualified participants are assigned to an appropriate session.

We call for minisymposia and talks.

All qualified speakers decide on their own if they want to publish a full paper after they submit an abstract. However, every speaker gets a slot of 20 min for presentation and discussion.

Proceedings

There will be conference proceedings, published in the series lecture notes in mechanical engineering by springer.

The papers must have at least 6 pages and should not exceed 10 pages. The submitted papers are subject to a full peer review process. All deadlines are listed in the next paragraph.

Templates for and guidlines for author can be found at Springer.
