1st EPSRC MultiSim Interdisciplinary Workshop on Multiscale Modelling
Friday, 29 March, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Multiscale modelling as a technique is used across the breadth of engineering disciplines and associated application domains. This diversity of application leads to a great variety in the way multiscale modellers communicate about multiscale modelling, to researchers within their own discipline, to researchers outside their own discipline, and to non-researchers. Clearly, this has implications on scientific exchange, collaboration and impact.
With this context, this workshop will aim to:
- collate current challenges from various fields where multiscale modelling is applied;
- critique existing and novel approaches to solving these challenges;
- explore challenges in communicating multiscale modelling ideas within application domains; and
- explore challenges in communicating multiscale modelling ideas across application domains
These goals will be driven through talks delivered by multiscale modelling experts from several application domains, supplemented by Q&A and summative group exercises. Dedicated network sessions will provide participants further opportunities to interact. Follow link to register.
