May 2-4, 2012 | Planet Hollywood Resort | Las Vegas, Nevada
The first large-scale symposium dedicated entirely to verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification of computer simulations is being held May 2-4 in Las Vegas. This symposium will bring together engineers and scientists from all disciplines that use computational modeling and simulation to discuss and exchange ideas and methods for verification of codes and solutions, simulation validation, and assessment of uncertainties in mathematical models, computational solutions, and experimental data. The call-for-abstracts resulted in an outstanding response with over 240 abstracts received from a wide variety of industries throughout the world and we are excited for the attendees opportunity to share and learn verification and validation methods, approaches, and ideas for the future. The conference program will begin with two plenary sessions with four distinguished experts, followed by four parallel technical tracks, and will conclude with a regulatory perspective panel session and open discussion for future activities and works.
