Upcoming VECMA Multiscale Modelling and Simulation (MMS) workshop associated with ICCS 2021 in Krakow, Poland, 16-18 Jun 2021

VECMA is organising the 3rd Multiscale Modelling and Simulation (MMS) workshop associated with ICCS 2021 in Krakow, Poland, 16-18 Jun 2021. Modelling and simulation of multiscale systems constitutes a grand challenge in computational science, and is widely applied in fields ranging from the physical sciences and engineering to the life science and the socio-economic domain.…

The VECMA Jupyter Notebook for interactive tutorials and learning of the VVUQ Toolkit

We are pleased to offer VECMA Jupyter Notebook for interactive tutorials and learning of the VVUQ Toolkit (VECMAtk) that has been developed from the VECMA project. VECMAtk enables automated Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification (VVUQ) for complex single- and multi-scale applications that can be deployed on emerging exascale platforms as well as on local computers…

VECMA and CompBioMed join forces to predict the impact of COVID

SARS-CoV2 has rapidly spread worldwide since December 2019, and early modelling work of this pandemic has assisted in identifying effective government interventions. The UK government relied in part on the CovidSim model developed by Professor Neil Ferguson’s team at the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, to model various non-pharmaceutical…
