CASUS Annual Workshop

We are pleased to announce the 2nd CASUS Annual Workshop on „Fusing Artificial Intelligence & Simulation”.

The event takes place online from 5 – 9 October 2020.

The workshop will bring together experts from a variety of scientific communities presenting work on fusing AI with Simulation. Subjects will include – but are not limited to – AI-driven Surrogate Modelling, Data-driven Modelling, Artificial Intelligence & High-Performance Computing, Fusion of Data from Measurements & Simulations, Interactive High-Performance Computing, Fusion of Numerical Methods & Artificial Intelligence and In-Memory Workflows for Exascale Computing including Artificial Intelligence.
