Satellite Events

Several satellite events will take place at the same venue on August 25th and 28th 2020.


Avicenna Day (Aug. 25th)

This event will be organized by the Avicenna Alliance. More detail soon.


SOFA Training Workshop (Aug. 25th, 9:00-17:00)

SOFA is an open source framework for multi-physics simulation and is being developed for more than 13 years. Today, SOFA benefits from a large international community made up of research centers and companies. The SOFA core has a LGPL license (permissive and non-contaminating) fostering the development of prototypes and products under any commercial license.
The open source consortium SOFA regularly organizes training sessions to learn how to use and develop in SOFA. The VPH2020 SOFA workshop aims at providing a wide introduction to SOFA and its community while ensuring the mathematical, physical and computer science backgrounds in order to start in the best conditions with SOFA. The preliminary program is as follows:
  • 09h00 - 09h45 Introduction to SOFA & SOFA main principles
  • 09h45 - 10h15 Projects involving SOFA
  • 10h15 - 10h30 break
  • 10h30 - 12h User tutorial (part 1)
  • 12h00 - 13h30 lunch time
  • 13h30 - 14h00 User tutorial (part 2)
  • 14h00 - 15h30 Theoretical backgrounds on physics simulation
  • 15h30 - 15h45 break
  • 15h45 - 17h00 Hands-on: developer tutorial

TOFMOD Workshop - Tetralogy of Fallot & Modeling of Diseases (Aug. 25th)

This workshop organized by Inria and UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas (Associated Team TOFMOD, Tetralogy of Fallot & Modeling of Diseases) aims at discussing modeling tools for clinical questions and problems which are not sufficiently solved by current clinical techniques particularly for congenital heart diseases, of which Tetralogy Of Fallot is an exemplary case.  For detailed information (including abstract submission and registration), please see the flyer.


ASME V&V40 Training Course (Aug. 28th, 15:15-19:15)

ASME V&V40 — Assessing Credibility of Computational Modeling and Simulation Results through Verification and Validation: Application to Medical Devices, was published in 2018 to support the credible use of modeling and simulation within the medical device industry.  This standard was developed through close collaboration between medical device developers, regulatory agencies, and other device industry stakeholders, and provides modelers in the medical device industry with a framework for establishing model credibility requirements.  This introductory course will provide an overview of the standard and highlight its key tenets through a few medical device examples and active breakout discussions.

Instructors are the officers of the ASME V&V40 sub-committee:

  • Jeff Bischoff from Zimmer Biomet, Chair
  • Marc Horner from ANSYS, Vice-Chair
  • Payman Afshari from Depuy Synthes, Vice-Chair
  • Kate Hyam from ASME, Secretary
