School on Uncertainty Quantification for Hyperbolic Equations and Related Topics

April 24-28, 2017

GSSI Gran Sasso Science Institute, L’Aquila, Italy

The school aims at introducing researchers, especially graduate students and postdocs, to the state of the art in uncertainty quantification for hyperbolic equations and related topics, like kinetic equations. The format of the school consists of three short courses by leading experts in the field and various invited talks.
