Workshop Outline

The emphasis of the workshop will be on application of risk management methodologies across engineering domains. Several talks will focus on the application and development of the risk quadrangle concept, as well as new risk measures associated with this concept. For instance, we will consider advanced statistics applications such as linear regression estimation of Conditional Value-at-Risk, Probability of Exceedance, and Buffered Probability of Exceedance.


Registration Fee & Meal Accommodations

Thanks to sponsorship from the AFOSR, Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at UF, we will not be charging any registration or participation fee. In addition, we will be providing boxed lunches for speakers of the workshop.


Transportation to Gainesville

We recommend to take direct flights to Jacksonville, Orlando or Tampa airports and rent a car to drive to Gainesville (about 2 hours of driving). You can fly directly to Gainesville’s Regional Airport (GNV). The connecting cities to GNV are Atlanta on Delta, Charlotte on U.S. Airways, Miami on American Eagle, and Tampa, Orlando, and Fort Lauderdale on United Airlines. However, you may experience delays at the connecting airports (especially in Atlanta).

Sponsors: AFOSR, University of Florida, Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering & Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Organizers: Stan Uryasev and George Pertaia.
