Probabilistic Numerics @ SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification

Technical University Munich, Germany, 24 - 27 March 2020

Four minisymposia on probabilistic numerical methods were scheduled at the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification 2020 to be held in Garching near Munich in Southern Germany from 24 to 27 March 2020. Unfortunately, the conference had to be canceled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Nevertheless, many speakers provided a recording of their presentation. Huge thanks to all contributors, despite the tough circumstances!
