ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems
Part A: Civil Engineering
Part B: Mechanical Engineering


Committee on Probability and Statistics in the Physical Sciences


[ Overview ]

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.
