Brown University's Institute for Computational and Experimental 
Research in Mathematics (ICERM) is hosting a workshop in January that 
might be of interest to you and your peers:

 From the Clinic to Partial Differential Equations and Back: Emerging 
challenges for Cardiovascular Mathematics (January 20 - 24, 2014)

Organizing Committee:
Leopold Grinberg (Brown University and IBM T. J. Watson Research 
Anne Marie Robertson (University of Pittsburgh)
Pablo Javier Blanco (National Laboratory for Scientific Computing, 
Alessandro Veneziani (Emory University)
John N Oshinski (Emory University, School of Medicine)
W. Robert Taylor (Emory University, School of Medicine)

Mathematical models have been giving remarkable contributions in 
advancing knowledge and supporting decisions in several branches of 

Some progress in applying predictive mathematical tools has been made, 
for example: surgical planning of the Total Cavopulmonary Connection in 
cardiac pediatrics is, in some hospitals, based on extensive numerical 
simulation. However, despite the significance, the impact of predictive 
modeling in the routine medical treatment falls behind.

The ultimate goal of this workshop is to foster collaboration between 
mathematicians and medical doctors on modeling cardiovascular system. 
The workshop is organized into two lines that reflect the special format 
of the workshop: (a) "Core topics" are up-to-date research areas in 
mathematics and scientific computing that still present several open 
exciting challenges, which can require developing new numerical models, 
computational approaches and validation techniques; (b) "New challenges" 
are a set of cardiovascular (in broad sense) problems and diseases that 
have not been attacked extensively with numerical tools.

The "core topics" will include fluid-structure interaction, multi-scale 
dynamics, data assimilation, while the "new challenges" will focus on 
the liver circulation, cardiac re-synchronization therapy, chronic 
venous insufficiency and coiling of intracranial aneurysms. The workshop 
will be based on round-table discussions in smaller groups and lectures.
