3rd VPH study group on VPH Toolkit
By Martina Contin
The third VPH NoE study group (SG3) will be held in Barcelona in May 2012. The event, organised by the University of Sheffield, Super Computing Solutions, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, will take place at UPF premises the week after the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2012).
The organisers invited three groups of world-recognised experts, typically leading large VPH Projects, to submit a proposal for a grand challenge in the area of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and oncology research. The organisers requested that these grand challenges would identify each a challenging modelling workflow, a minimum list of “essential” tools known to be necessary, and a list of European research groups that are known to be active in research topics that could benefit from the complete realisation of such workflow. For each challenge a workgroup will be formed, composed by the experts who proposed the challenge, expert developers of software tools identified relevant for that challenge, and by young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) who are conducting research in directions that would take clear advantage by the full realisation of the workflow defined by the challenge.
