(2006) Reliable Computing 12: 167–169 DOI: 10.1007/s11155-006-4873-3 c Springer 2006 Second Scandinavian Workshop on Interval Methods and Their Applications TheSecond Scandinavian Workshop on Interval Methods and Their Applications was hosted by the institute Informatics and Mathematical Modelling of the Tech- nical University of Denmark, August 25–27, 2005 . The workshop attracted 44 participants from 11 countries. Theworkshop provided a forum to review and discuss the state-of-the-art in interval methods and their applications. Probably half the participants would iden- tify themselves with engineering or scientiﬁc disciplines considered as “applications areas” by the interval community. The workshop was preceded by a one day tutorial given by George Corliss. What was most striking was variety of engineering applications on which sig- niﬁcant progress was reported. Whether we call them “interval,” “validated,” or “reliable,” techniques, there is a feeling that such techniques may be turning a corner from being of academic interest only toward the (yet very long) path toward becoming the usual way engineers solve their problems. Robotics: Jean-Pierre Merlet presented an illustrative example in kinematics, workspace analysis, singularity avoidance, motion planning, and optimal design of a six-legged platform. Interval analysis helps manage inevitable uncertainties in the robot, and it has
