Verification and Validation Symposium

Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Minneapolis, MN

May 16 - 18, 2018


Early Bird Registration
Deadline: April 19


This unique event brings together engineers and scientists from a wide array of disciplines that practice verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ) in their computational modeling and simulation. Discuss and exchange ideas and methods with leading experts for verification of codes and solutions, simulation validation, and assessment of uncertainties in mathematical models, computational solutions, and experimental data. Share and gain insights into new ways of enhancing technologies to improve modeling, simulation capabilities and more. This year’s program will feature 25 technical sessions, challenge and workshop problems, and panel discussions including a thought provoking and interactive discussion session on Verification and Validation; the Unanswered Questions. 

Announcing Keynote Speakers!

  • Scott Ferson - Institute for Risk and Uncertainty at the University of Liverpool
  • Ben Thacker - Director of the Materials Engineering Department at Southwest Research Institute
  • Anita Bestelmeyer – Director, Corporate Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) BD Technologies and Innovation (BDTI)
  • Tom Coleman Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center

Is your work in the healthcare industry?

You may want to come early on Monday May 14, for AABME CONNECT: Where Biomedicine and Engineering Come Together. This one-day workshop is designed to bring together key stakeholders in the bioengineering community—from biologists to engineers and everyone in between—so they can network, highlight innovations, and discuss how to bridge the gap between basic and applied research. For more information visit the AABME CONNECT website.

Come early for a deeper dive into VVUQ with the following opportunities

VVUQ Training

On May 14 – 15, take the following two courses:

  • Verification and Validation in Scientific Computing
  • Probabilistic and Uncertainty Quantification Methods for Model Verification & Validation

Separate Registration and fee for these courses is required. Register now.

ASME V&V 40 Industry Day

Discuss the upcoming publication of the new standard ASME V&V 40-2018 -- Assessing Credibility of Computational Modeling and Simulation Results through Verification and Validation: Application to Medical Devices (May 15, 2018). The ASME V&V 40 standard provides modelers in the medical device industry with a framework for establishing model credibility requirements. A separate registration is required on the V&V40 Day Program (no fee). Register now.
