Abstract: Current Medical Modeling either operates with physiological models, which need to be calibrated beforehand from available clinical data, or is based on direct data mining. In both cases, effective regularization techniques should be employed. In the first case an application of the regularization theory is expected since model calibration is a typical inverse problem, which is usually ill-posed. As to the data mining, it is also a traditional application area for the regularization theory, where essential progress has been accomplished recently through regularization learning algorithms. All these call for a platform for joint discussion by the inverse problems and medical modeling communities. The mini-symposium is aimed at providing such a platform. In particular, we are going to discuss the problems and findings that have appeared in the course of the project "DIAdvisor" devoted to the improvement of diabetes therapy.
