The VPHi keynote webinar series is a quarterly event organized by the VPHi Student Committee that provides a forum for access to senior community members and their expert competence for chiefly young scientists, but also to the VPH community as a whole.
With the series, VPHi wishes to:
The first webinar of the series will be held on 9 Sept 2015 at 12pm CET by one of the founding members of the VPH Institute, Prof Peter Hunter (University of Auckland) and will be moderated by Jerome Noailly (UPF). In the webinar Prof Hunter will show how to create CELLML models from scratch and run them using the OpenCOR software.
CellML (www.cellml.org) is a model encoding standard that is used to ensure model reproducibility.
OpenCOR (www.opencor.ws) is a simulation package written by Alan Garny that is designed for authoring and running CellML models. It is freely available for Windows, Mac and some Linux platforms.
The Physiome Model Repository (PMR) is a repository of CellML (http://models.cellml.org) and FieldML models, together with associated data, that can be accessed from OpenCOR.
This talk will be based on a tutorial that covers the use of CellML, OpenCOR and PMR (see www.cellml.org/getting-started/tutorials).
The webinar is free and open to anyone but registration will be mandatory. If you plan to attend please register as soon as possible.
