Dear All, I think it's fair
Dear All,

I think it's fair to offer a short closing word on the Zagreb OpenFOAM Workshop (26-28/Jan/2006) as a way of thanks to all attendees and presenters as well as our host at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture. My expectations were spectacularly exceeded - according to the last count there were 80 people present, and the presentations on Saturday were extremely interesting.

The work on the final form of the Workshop web site is still not complete and hopefully will include the presentation slides and data on interest groups as discussed in Zagreb.

Thank you again for coming and I promise to do my best to organise a similar get-together in Europe in 12-18 months time. For other OpenFOAM-related events, watch this space.
