Information for Design Under Uncertainty: An Expert Panel Discussion (IDM110)


TUESDA , APRIL 12 - MORNING Technical and Business Sessions




10:00 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.

The objective of this panel is to initiate a debate about how to measure the value of information from tests or computer simulations in a particular design decision. Additional topics include:

  • Quantification of uncertainty in

probabilistic models -- limitations of confidence intervals for the mean value of a random variable and the probability of an event

  • Assessing the accuracy of models of


  • Probabilities of extreme events and joint

probability distributions 10:00 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.

Help unlock the potential in every child – in your community – become a volunteer!

A World In Motion® (AWIM) is a program that brings science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life for students K-12. Led by the teacher with assistance from the volunteer STEM professional, AWIM gives students the opportunity to learn through hands-on activities. As a volunteer, you can influence the future by giving of your time.

Teachers make AWIM happen… the hands-on activities make it exciting…volunteers make it special!
