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.
