GOALS for this meeting:

The 2018 IMAG Futures meeting is where we plan the future for multiscale modeling and analysis of biomedical, biological and behavioral systems.   The 2009 IMAG Futures Meeting was seminal in setting the stage for addressing multiscale modeling challenges that can make an impact on biomedical research through the IMAG Multiscale Modeling (MSM) Consortium.  This year’s 2018 IMAG Futures Meeting takes a look at how well the 2009 IMAG Futures challenges have been addressed and sets next steps for the MSM.  In particular we will focus on new methods to bridge theory-driven models with data-driven models and determine how machine learning can play a role for future impact.
