Call for Papers: Sensitivity Analysis of Model Output

Guest Editor: Giray Ökten, Florida State University 

This Special issue focuses on global sensitivity analysis and its impact on decisions with a scientific, social, and policy perspective. Sensitivity analysis contributes to model development, model calibration, model validation, reliability and robustness analysis, decision-making under uncertainty, quality-assurance, and model reduction. In recent years, the policymakers have required or recommended the use of sensitivity analysis in model testing and/or development, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (stress testing required by the Dodd-Frank Act), the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the European Commission. The goal of this Special issue is to bring together researchers from engineering, physical and social sciences, mathematics and statistics, to create a forum for the latest research and applications of global sensitivity analysis.

To submit to this Special Issue, please email an extended abstract (~1000 words plus bibliography) to the Guest Editor, Giray Ökten ( by August 1, 2022. The deadline for submission of full papers is December 1, 2022.
