Third OpenFOAM workshop
The event intends to bring together developers and users of OpenFOAM, to promote collaborative activities, exchange information and share experiences in similar areas of interest. The Workshop is split into thematic sessions, to help participants stay up-to-date by providing indications of emerging and developing ideas in each research area. For the benefit of new users and people interested in knowing the OpenFOAM code, a one-day Training Course will be provided on the 9th of July 2008.
Date: July 9, 2008 - July 11, 2008
