Simulation models are used in many settings and for different purposes. Knowledge uncertainty, uncertainty in observations, poorly known physical parameters, alternative value judgements can impinge on the defensibility of model-based results. The model X-raying offered by sensitivity analysis is useful to investigate how these uncertainty sources affect the outcome of an analysis.

Goal of the summer school is to make the participants aware of the state-of-the-art methods in sensitivity analysis, to stimulate the flow of new ideas, and to suggest new research directions. Most of the methodological advances in the field of sensitivity analysis will be covered.

Application case studies will cover environmental appraisal and decision-making, financial risk, performance indicators for integrated environmental/transportation policy, short-term time series analysis in econometrics, physics, macro-economy, etc.

Hands-on sessions will use software packages (SIMLAB (JRC), GLUE (Lancaster University - JRC), UNICORN (TU Delft), CAPTAIN Matlab Toolbox (CRES, Lancaster, UK)) to show how sensitivity analysis can be used to supply transparent pictures of the state-of-quality of model-based results and can be beneficial to their defensibility.
