Summer 2015: Uncertainties in Computational Hemodynamics: June 1-3, 2015


This workshop was held at SAMSI.


During this workshop, bio-engineers, mathematicians, medical doctors, physiologists and statisticians worked collaboratively toward the resolution of three significant challenges in the context of computational hemodynamics: (i) stochastic modeling, (ii) big data approach and (iii) relevance in the clinical setting. The three-day event was structured so that one day was devoted to each challenge, with a mix of talks and brain storming sessions.
