[ Overview ]

Dear REC2021 participants,

we wish to inform you that we are monitoring the evolution of Covid-19 pandemic very closely. Due to the highly unpredictable nature of the situation, we are prepared to host a hybrid or fully online event at the same dates in order to guarantee the success of REC2021 and the safety of the participants. The hybrid format would allow registrants the choice to attend the event virtually or in-person.

Further information on the organization of REC2021 will be communicated in due course.

We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.

The theme of the 9th International Workshop on Reliable Engineering Computing (REC2021) is “Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Computations”. Engineers and scientists from academic, industrial and governmental institutions are invited to contribute and to join in debates on recent developments and future challenges in the field. REC2021 will provide a multi-disciplinary forum to bring together various engineering and associated disciplines with the common focus on methodologies and theories in the field of risk and uncertainty.

As in the previous biennial REC-meetings, the central theme of the discussions will be the reliability of engineering computations. Covering a broad range of topics, REC2021 aims to address the urgent need for innovative theories and advanced computational approaches to ensure safety of engineering systems starting with uncertainty quantification of input parameters.

Previous REC-meetings have been hosted at Georgia Tech Savannah (United States) in 2004, 2006, and 2008, at the National University of Singapore in 2010, at Brno University of Technology in Brno, (Czech Republic) in 2012, at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago (United States) in 2014, at Ruhr University Bochum (Germany) in 2016 and at Liverpool University (United Kingdom) in 2018. REC2021 will be held in Taormina (Italy), an international top tourist destination with stunning sea views and unique historical buildings.
