Participant of Quantitative Risk Modeling Interdisciplinary Instructional Training will learn the underlying concepts how to use scientific data to perform risk modeling and other quantitative modeling techniques. The Instructional Training is design for graduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral fellows and early –career professionals/Scientist. Participants will gain hands-on experience with host of quantitative risk modeling software options and other tools while they participate in realistic case studies.

Participants will:

  • Participate in discussion forum and instructional lectures
  • Engage in specific hands on exercises

We assume no prior knowledge in quantitative modeling experience on the part of participants; therefore we will include tutorial models and applications for quantitative risk modeling.

No registration fee is required. However, only limited seats are available.

Accepting applications until January 31st, 2017, acceptance notification will be released by February 2nd, 2017
