OpenFOAM® Stammtisch United (Kick-Off) - Beschlüsse
Beschlüsse vom OpenFOAM-Stammtisch United (Kick-Off) am 23./24.2.2011
an der TU Dortmund zur Zukunft des OpenFOAM-Stammtisch United.

Der kick-off des OpenFOAM-Stammtisch 'united' war ein erfreulicher Erfolg und
es gab einige Beschlüsse zum weiteren Verlauf des OpenFOAM-Stammtisch 'united':

Auf dem OpenFOAM-Stammtisch United (Kick-Off) am 23./24.2.2011 an der TU
Dortmund - Fakultät BCI ergab sich eine Teilnehmerzahl von ca. 50 Foamern.

In der Diskussionsrunde 'Stammtisch United - Zukunft des gemeinsamen
Stammtisch / Organisation?' hat sich ein positive Stimmungsbild ergeben. Es ist
beschlossen worden, einen Stammtisch United im nächsten Jahr wieder stattfinden zu lassen.

Eine Anbindung an ProcessNet wird weiterhin favorisiert und kann bei besserer
'Vermarktung' des Stammtisches zu einer größeren Teilnehmerzahl führen.

Der Termin 2012 wird wieder ähnlich liegen wie dieses Jahr. Voraussetzung ist,
dass mindestes 4 Wochen um diesen Termin herum kein anderer Stammtisch stattfinden sollte.

Ein Turnus von 1x/Jahr für den Stammtisch United wurde von allen befürwortet.

Form und Art der Veranstaltung wird beibehalten wie bei allen Stammtischen.

Das vorläufige Kernteam des Stammtisch United ist

Wir freuen uns über viele weitere Beiträge oder Kommentare und Unterstützung.

Viele Grüße

Hi. Out of curiosity, will this meeting be german speaking only or it is open to internationals?

I'm thinking to attend, but i don't speach german. Will english be ok to understand?

Best regards.

Dear Sail,

I have been at quite a few Stammtisch meetings were the presenters have been asked to switch from German to English without prior notice. This is usually not a problem since most members of the OpenFOAM community live in the academic world or work for international companies. My slides are in English only!

The BoF sessions and informal parts are subject to luck, courtesy and awareness. My impression is that we all try to be perfect hosts, but some of us may fall into local dialects in which case things can be become tricky for native German speakers, too :)

Dear All,

As you can imagine there are things to organise for the upcoming Stammtisch United. Since we have slightly more overhead this time, we need a good idea of how many people will attend. Please help us by registering in the next few days either on the portal OR by dropping us an eMail.

There are also open presentation slots which we would like to fill.

Many Thanks,
