Séminaire en ligne DAFNI: intégration et validation de modèles

(Juste Raimbault) #1

Bonjour à tous,

Voici ci-dessous une invitation à un séminaire en ligne lundi prochain 22/11 à 15h CET .

Les thèmes abordés sont liés à l’intégration, au couplage et à la validation des modèles urbains, par l’utilisation de scientific workflow engines .

L’événement inclut notamment des présentations de Michael Batty (University College London), Denise Pumain (Université Paris 1) et Romain Reuillon (ISC-PIF).

How the Data & Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure (DAFNI) is being used on integration of urban models with workflow systems

About this event

Join us at this session to find out more about DAFNI and the importance of model integration; workflow engines to construct complex models by coupling modular components.

The mix of talks and Q&A sessions has been designed to facilitate discussions and two-way conversations.

➡️ This is an opportunity to hear from Dr Juste Raimbault, a DAFNI Champion, about his work on DAFNI, how they have integrated their research, a modular implementation of the MATSim model explored with the OpenMole software, onto the platform and what the benefits have been of working with DAFNI.

OpenMole is an open source scientific workflow engine aimed at exploring and validating simulation models. It provides seamless model embedding into a scripting language, transparent access to High Performance Computing infrastructures, and state-of-the-art sampling, calibration, sensitivity analysis, and model validation methods. Its integration into DAFNI allows the use of these methods to validate DAFNI models.

The programme include keynote speakers:

➡️ Denise Pumain (Université Paris): How validation through model exploration empowers theories of spatial complexity: example of urban systems

Denise Pumain is an Honorary Professor at Université Paris 1, UMR CNRS 8504 Géographie-cités. She developed throughout her career an integrative approach to urban systems dynamics, combining an evolutionary theory for systems of cities with the development of simulation models and harmonised databases. Her ERC Grant Geodivercity (2010-2016) introduced new models for systems of cities and methods to validate them, implemented into the OpenMOLE platform.

➡️ Romain Reuillon (ISC-PIF Complex Systems Institute / OpenMOLE): OpenMOLE, a workflow system for the exploration and validation of simulation models

Romain Reuillon is a CNRS researcher at the Complex Systems Institute in Paris (ISC-PIF). He is the founder of the OpenMOLE project, and one of its main developers for more than 10 years. The focus of his research is distributed computing and the validation of simulation models, in an interdisciplinary context.

Join us to discover:

> a new MATSim implementation and its integration into DAFNI and OpenMOLE;

> the aim of OpenMole, benefits of this research and how you can get involved;

> how DAFNI can offer support and discussion around potential use cases for DAFNI;

> how to find and access national infrastructure data and models for your research;

> how to access DAFNI’s computational simulation, modelling and visualisation facilities;

> how to increase visibility of your research data and models with the UK national infrastructure community and beyond;

> how the use of workflow systems and model validation methods provides a more robust and reproducible research;

> engage in a live demo of the DAFNI platform;

> take part in an interactive question and answer to give feedback and suggest how DAFNI could best support your research;
