MultiSim/OATech+ Modelathon

When: 13/01/2020 - 16/01/2020
Where: Sheffield - U.K.

The MultiSim/OATech+ Modelathon is a one-day symposium (free of charge) followed by a three-day modelling competition on combining experimental and computational research on multi-scale approaches to patient- specific musculoskeletal and finite element modelling. The event will take place from Monday to Thursday, 13-16 January 2020 at the Diamond Building, University of Sheffield (U.K.) and it is dedicate to researchers in bio-mechanics, computational modelling or image based solutions. 

Symposium programme
The symposium on day 1 explores Experimental and computational approaches to optimise the treatment of osteoarthritis

Through expert keynotes, a round-table discussion, and three-minute-researcher presentations we will explore cutting-edge research on how new potential treatments are being tested, evaluated and optimised by using a combination of experimental and multi-scale computational, models and methods.

Multi-scale Modelling competition
The competition is based on the concept of a hackathon where different teams work on a challenging problem to ‘hack’ computer code. This event, however, uses ‘modelling’ and ‘simulation’ rather than ‘hacking’.

The multi-scale modelling competition on days 2-4  includes leading companies** such as: Ansys, Dassault Systemes, Synopsys, and Materialise  who will provide hands-on support by sending an expert for the duration of the event to ensure participants utilise their company’s software to its full potential in a competitive environment.  The event is powered by Google Cloud.

This is an ideal opportunity to:

  • gain practical experience of working with professionals in a multi-scale research modelling team that is likely to include clinicians and modellers;
  • enhance your computer simulation skills by using technical software on challenges based on the subject of multi-scale biomechanics supported by industry and academic experts;
  • have access to state-of-the-art techniques and software (including Abaqus, Ansys, Simpleware, Mimics, Matlab and OpenSim) as your team works through this multi-scale challenge;
  • network and make friends in your research area;
  • win Amazon gift vouchers of £100 as a member of the winning team!

Fee scheme

Day 1 is free for internal and external participants

Day 2-4: £180 for external participants. Costs include 3 nights accommodation and all meals.

Day 2-4: £40 for internal participants. Costs excluding accommodation and breakfasts.

This event is endorsed by the European Society for Biomechanics (ESB), whose members will receive a 20% discount.
