Event Details


The goal of this workshop is to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas and tools for performing uncertainty quantification and sensititivy analysis for computational models of cardiovascular dynamics. The workshop will be mostly tutorial in nature but include keynote talks on current research and results of UQ/SA in cardiovascular modeling. 

If you plan on attending, please register for the event as we will be ordering food, reserving rooms, and setting up computer accounts for participants to use during the workshop. We look forward to welcoming you to Berkeley and having a productive and enjoyable meeting!
