The EPSRC-funded Modelathon 2018 is a one-day symposium followed by a three-day multi-scale modelling competition. The event brings together the very best of theory and practice in the area of multi-scale modelling. The symposium may be attended as a standalone event or as a pre-session for our modelling competition.

Program

Day 1 - Symposium

The symposium explores how multidisciplinary groups (clinicians, engineers and modelers) can combine experimental and computational research methods in a cost and time effective way to help in the study, evaluation and developments of new treatments for osteoarthritic joints.

Day 2-4 - Modelathon Competition

The competition is based on the concept of a hackathon. Participants will be grouped into teams to try and solve a complex multi-scale modelling problem. Participants will be grouped into teams to try and solve a complex multi-scale modelling problem. These teams will compete against one another in front of industry and academic experts to find a solution to the assigned problem. Members of the winning team will each receive a £100 Amazon gift voucher.
