After a break during the Covid-19 pandemic, the FrontUQ workshop series will resume in 2024. The 4th edition will take place September 24-27 2024 in Braunschweig and will feature the topic "Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) for Aerospace Engineering". It is jointly organized by groups of TU Braunschweig, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the German Aerospace Center.

UQ has a long tradition in aerospace engineering and is gaining momentum again with the current research emphasis on Certification by Analysis. The workshop aims to bridge the gaps between the uncertainty quantification and aerospace communities. The first day puts special emphasis on UQ software, with multiple UQ software projects presenting themselves in hands-on tutorials.

Therefore, contributions featuring mathematical method development, applications in aerospace engineering and new approaches to UQ software design are welcome.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Efficient uncertainty propagation

  • Estimation of model form error

  • Advanced methods for the estimation of failure probabilities

  • Surrogate modeling and error estimation

  • Imprecise probability models

  • UQ approaches suitable for multi-disciplinary problems

  • Robust design and optimization

  • Scalable UQ techniques that are applicable to industrial grade problems

  • Data-driven approaches and UQ

  • Software for UQ
