Abstract

Sensitivity Analysis of Model Output (SAMO) investigates the relative importance of input model parameters in determining model predictions. SAMO can be used for screening active factors in systems with many uncertain parameters and may be crucial in model verification and quality assurance, model calibration in the presence of uncertainties, and model comparison and benchmarking. Sensitivity Analysis (SA) can be applied to all branches of modelling and computer experiments and its development is very much application driven. The aim of the symposium was to bring together scientific communities active in SAMO and in its fields of application from different disciplines and countries. Roughly 50 experts from 16 Countries have contributed their achievements and experience in fields as diverse as chemical kinetics, economics, nuclear safety and safeguard, environmental sciences, risk analysis, mechanical engineering and decision theory. The present small volume of extended abstracts, presents a useful compendium of facts and tendencies in today's sensitivity analysis.
