Harmonisation Initiative | Harmonisation conferences | 1st workshop | 2nd | 3rd | 4th | 5th conference | 6th conf. | 7th conf.
The local organiser in France, CORIA, maintains a web site with information on the conference programme etc.
On the present server (located in Denmark) there is technical information on modelling exercises related to the conference, especially those dealing with the Model Validation Kit and the ASTM methodology. A meeting concerned with these subjects was convened in Rouen.
Note from February 2000:
The material on the present page was prepared before the Rouen conference. This page is maintained mainly for historical reasons and in order to avoid "dead links".
As part of the preparations for the "Harmonisation..." conference in Rouen, interested participants are encouraged to work with some common tools for model evaluation which are available to the modelling community.
