Date: Sunday January 8, 1-4:30pm

Overview: We will be holding a Validation Workshop in conjuction with the NAMIC 2006 AHM. The Validation Workshop will provide a forum to discuss state-of-the-art statistical methods and software engineering processes for validation. Validation will be defined broadly to include validation concepts/processes in software engineering, imaging, and statistics. An organizing theme will be identification of validation methods/concepts which can be applied across domains.
