There will extensive opportunity for interactive discussions focussed around three sessions on:

HOW NOT TO MAKE DECISIONS WITH COMPUTER SIMULATIONS

Keynote speaker: Roman Frigg (London School of Economics, UK)

DYNAMICS MODEL VALIDATION

Keynote speaker: Eann Patterson (University of Liverpool, UK)

DESIGNING WITH HIGH FIDELITY SIMULATIONS

Keynote speaker:  Kristina Shea (ETH Zurich)

There will be other speakers and panellists from the aerospace and nuclear industries.  One focus for discussion will the adoption and expansion of a methodology for validation within the European industrial and scientific communities.  An methodology for validation has been proposed by CEN WS71 and is open for comment at http://www.cen.eu/work/areas/Materials/Pages/WS-71.aspx.

Workshop Chair: Dr Erwin Hack , EMPA Switzerland.  The workshop is supported by  the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 319116, VANESSA (Validation of Numerical Engineering Simulations: Standardisation Actions). logo10
