FORT WORTH, TX (11 May 2015) - With the AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition 2015 being held in its backyard, Pointwise is extending Texas hospitality to meeting attendees with some special activities. Kicking things off is the Pointwise Let’s Talk Meshing Workshop on Sunday, 21 June, at the Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas. In addition to this workshop, Pointwise will also host a reception, be involved in the presentation of two technical papers, and be available in the exhibition hall.
