Handling uncertainty in science


Organised by: Professor Tim Palmer FRS (University of Oxford and European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts) and Professor Paul Hardaker (Royal Meteorological Society)

 A highly multi-disciplinary meeting discussing how scientists from a range of disciplines handle the issue of uncertainty in their area of specialisation: i.e. how uncertainty can be characterised, estimated, predicted and communicated. The meeting will also address the question of how decisions are made, and should be made, in the light of scientific uncertainty. An exceptionally eminent set of speakers have agreed to participate.
Audio recordings of the meeting are now available below.
The proceedings of this meeting have been published in Philosophical Transactions A.
