The MultiSim Modelathon is almost here!

There are only 10 days until the MultiSim Modelathon kicks off! Are you up to the challenge? Based on the concept of a 'hackathon', teams will compete in a 3 day ‘modelling’ event. The 3 challenges will be based on the subject of multiscale biomechanics within the musculoskeletal system and teams will have access to state-of-the-art techniques and software to help th...

The MultiSim Modelathon 24th – 26th August 2015

musculoskeletal, disorders, hip joint, MultiSIm
We have a limited number of spaces left for the MultiSim Modelathon - are you up to the challenge? The MultiSim Modelathon is based on the concept of a hackathon event where different teams work on a challenging problem to ‘hack’ a computer code. Here there is no ‘hacking’ but ‘modelling’. Instead the teams will compete to solve a challenging multiscale biomechanic...
