A networking activity in parallel with the Second Barcelona School on Biomedical Informatics (BSBMI’10)
The second VPH NoE study group will be held in Barcelona in October 4th - 8th 2010. The event will be carried out in conjunction with the second Barcelona School of Biomedical Informatics (BSBMI’10). The event, hosted by the IMIM – Institut de Recerca Hospital del Mar (IMIM), the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), will take place in the outstanding premises of the PRBB, located next to the beachfront in Barcelona.
The 2nd VPH NoE Study Group will include the presentation of new developments on the field of multiscale simulations. The event will consist on a one day workshop on multiscale simulations, followed by four days of actual study group on applying such concepts and methods to three different biomedical problems. In the line of the first study group, hosted by the University of Notingham, the event will focus more on problem definition than on the use of actual tools, although in this edition some of the tools identified by the VPH community in the form of the VPH toolkit will be explained in some details to make participants aware of existing solutions to common problems. The study group and BSBMI is aimed at both Graduate Students and Research Scientists working in the field of multiscale simulations in biomedicine, and will bring together experts from both the public and private sectors.
The study group and BSBMI will have a focus on multiscalability, its computational aspects and, in particular, its relationship with translational research in biomedicine.
