4th Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada OpenFOAM Users Group Meeting
 
Dear Foamers in the Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada,

The 4th Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada OpenFOAM Users Group Meeting will be held at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center,
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 20, 2012. Please mark your calendars, and send an email to Anirban Jana (anirban@psc.edu) if you plan to attend.

Following the great successes of the three prior meetings held respectively at Penn State University, University of Michigan and Ohio State
University, we plan to maintain a similar format consisting of technical presentations in the morning, followed by birds-of-a-feather (BOF)
sessions and tutorials in the afternoon. Please feel free to send me presentation/BOF/tutorial suggestions for this meeting. As further
details of the meeting plans are finalized, they will be posted on the CFD-Online OpenFOAM forum, and/or the OpenFOAM Wiki, and/or the
Extend Portal.

A new idea this year is to post an updated list of attendees from time to time, so that others can see who are attending, which may pique their
interest and encourage them to attend too. Please let know in your RSVP email though if you DO NOT want to have your name appear in the list
of attendees.

There will be no registration fee to attend. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided to attendees. The attendees will be responsible for covering the cost of travel/lodging. Directions and some lodging information will be provided in a future update.

Support for the meeting from the NSF XSEDE's Education and Outreach program is gratefully acknowledged. XSEDE is the national
cyberinfrastructure for non-classified research funded by the National Science Foundation.

Best regards
Anirban Jana

Update for 4th Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada OpenFOAM Users Group Meeting
 
Hi all,
Two more weeks to go before we meet in Pittsburgh (Oct 20, Sat) for the 4th Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada OpenFOAM Users Group Meeting. We have already received word from more than 30 people from GA to MA that they will attend. There is still time to register for the meeting by sending an email to me (anirban@psc.edu), and also cc'ed to Dr Sagnik Majumdar (sagnikmazumdar@gmail.com). We will be ordering the food soon, so will have to close registration in a few more days.

We are planning to start at 8AM in the morning and end at 5PM in the evening. A detailed schedule will be posted soon.

Below is a Google map of some hotels within walking distance of PSC (and also on bus routes along Forbes Ave and 5th Ave):

If you are flying into the Pittsburgh International Airport, you can catch the 28X bus from the Ground Transportation area, which will bring you directly to Oakland ( the university neighbourhood ).

Information on public transportation in Pittsburgh can be found at:

Hoping to see you in two weeks
Best regards

To anyone attending the "Introduction to OpenFOAM" session, I have included a link to a file containing examples that will be gone over during the class, as well as a copy of the lecture. Also included are instructions for installing Ubuntu and OpenFOAM on a flash drive.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ksaowqkdcgv8b95/dnX06thN2R

These materials will all be available at the workshop. However, if you intend to bring and work on your own laptop, it is recommended you download at least the examples ahead of time.

Thanks everyone, see you Saturday.
