COMET Workshop “Models fit for purpose”
June 15-17, 2016 in Seville, Spain
In June 2016 the third COMET sponsored workshop is organized, focusing on modelling in radioecology.
Radioecological models are essential tools for use in assessing environmental impacts and risks from radionuclides in the environment, either directly or in developing underpinning process understanding. The third COMET Workshop will address whether radioecological models and available data can be described as “fit for purpose”, by organizing a dialogue and obtaining feedback from modellers, experimentalists and stakeholders.
Questions we would like to address in the workshop are:
What is the purpose of the models?
- Why do we need radioecology models?
- How should an ideal radiological model look like?
- How are the interactions between the modellers and the experimentalist?
- What are the model/data requirements?
Objectives: The objective of this workshop is to discuss modelling as fit for purpose, by organizing a dialogue and obtaining feedback from modellers, experimentalists and stakeholders on this subject.
Venue: The workshop will be hosted by the University of Seville, in the Spanish Accelerator Centre (CNA), Seville, Spain.
