Workshop Concept

Speakers and Topics

At the workshop, overview talks on selected topics will be given by experts from the modeling and simulation community. The speakers will present methods, tools, and applications from various fields, such as multiscale methods, distributed and high performance computing, optimization and parameter estimation, digital image analysis, scientific workflows, modeling and simulation of technical and biological systems. Besides the scientific talks, there will also be talks from industry.

Workshop Concept

Modeling and simulation of complex systems from many fields of application require a wide spectrum of methods, algorithms, and tools that cannot be surveyed even by experts. For many problems different solution approaches exist and the choice of a suitable method is usually determined by the modeler‘s experience and preferences. Direct comparisons of methods in practical applications are not commonly found in literature. After Siegen (2004), Wuppertal (2005), München (2006), Aachen (2007), Erlangen (2008), Stuttgart (2009), and Jülich (2010) the Munich workshop is the eigth in this series. The program aims at bridging the gap between basic algorithmic knowledge from different disciplines and practical applications in various research fields. Consequently, the workshop is focused on "education for experts" and on broadening the methodological knowledge in particular of PhD students from computational and engineering sciences and related fields. Survey presentations will be given on a high but not over-specialized level to achieve a crossfertilization between the different modeling and simulation disciplines. For this reason, sufficient time is reserved for scientific discussions, cross linking of topics, and networking of scientists.

Poster Session and Award

The workshop is particularly addressed at advanced students and PhD candidates who are encouraged to present their current work in a poster session. This session is given special emphasis in the conference program. The students can discuss their work and exchange ideas with experts from many fields and build up their own scientific networks. The best posters will be selected by a jury and awarded with a prize.
