Agenda and Registration: ISMRM Sim4Life User Workshop 2024

We are excited to announce our annual ISMRM Sim4Life User Workshop 2024, taking place:

Date:    Tuesday, May 7, 2024
Time:    18:30 – 22:00 hrs
Venue:  Bras Basah Room, Fairmont Singapore Hotel, 80 Bras Basah Rd, Singapore 189560, Singapore

The detailed agenda can be found here.

Sim4Life Live Demos at booth #D8 will be held May 6 – 9 (Mon–Thurs), from 12:30 to 13:15. Detailed agenda for the Live Demos is here.

Our speakers this year are Emily Long (former GE Healthcare engineer), Umberto Zanovello (INRIM, Italy), Daniel Wenz (EPFL, Switzerland), Tolga Goren (IT’IS Foundation, Switzerland), and Arjama Halder and Michael Oberle of ZMT.

Emily will discuss her work at GE, studying the effect of receive-only flexible surface coil design on specific absorption rate in 3T pediatric MRI. Learn how Sim4Life and the IT’IS Virtual Population were crucial in enabling these assessments.

Daniel will focus on ultra-high field MRI, and describe how computational modeling and simulation allowed him to explore high-permittivity materials for applications such as neuroimaging, multi-nuclear radiofrequency (RF) coils, and flexible RF coils.

Umberto will introduce CoSimPy, an open-source co-simulation library he developed to enhance electromagnetic (EM) simulation with an EM/Circuit co-simulation framework – a powerful tool, leveraging the application programming interface extensibility of Sim4Life.

Tolga will give an update on the state of MRI and implant safety standards (ISO 10974, ASTM F2182, MT-40 and PAS) and their roadmaps for the next year.

Arjama will unveil ZMT’s brand new Sim4Life V8.0 web version, showcasing its powerful simulation and collaboration capabilities. Gain firsthand insights into the underlying architecture and how it was implemented in the cloud for effortless browser-based use without any installation.

All workshop participants are cordially invited to a light dinner (served at the beginning of the workshop), and to continue the discussion during a networking reception at the end.
Registration is open and free-of-charge. Please note that, since only limited seating is available, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in participating, reserve your spot via email indicating your name and affiliation. You will receive a confirmation email upon registration.

And don’t forget to stop by our booth #D8! Our experts are available throughout the week, and will be giving lunchtime live demos introducing Sim4Life.web hands-on, as well as giving an overview of the MR implant safety workflow enabled by ZMT hardware and software solutions. Make sure to join the Sim4Life.web introduction, create an account, and get $100 in free credits to get started with a boost!

We look forward to welcoming you in Singapore,
