Abstract: Mathematical methods of model-based simulation and optimization are increasingly used in science, engineering and industrial applications. Their successful application requires the development and quantitative validation of mathematical models. This difficult mission is supported by numerical methods for inverse problems of model validation and calibration. Here, fundamental tasks are the estimation of unknown model coefficients by means of experimental data and design of optimal experiments to choose e.g. measurement times and experimental conditions,
which deliver sufficiently accurate estimates for the model parameters.

The application of these methods in industrial practice shows, however, that in order to use their full potential we have to deal with a number of new mathematical challenges. The topic of this mini-symposium is on the new developments in efficient numerical methods for inverse problems of model calibration and validation and on the transfer of these methods into challenging application areas.
