Open Source CFD International Conference 2009
Date: 12th/13th November 2009
Venue: World Trade Center, Barcelona, Spain
This year’s Open Source CFD International Conference addressed the continued momentum of the CFD community towards the usage of Open Source CFD software. The event provides a platform for discussion on all aspects of open source CFD and will highlight validated approaches and breakthrough technologies.
The 2008 conference brought together users, developers, academics and industry managers. More than 120 delegates from over 16 countries assembled to hear presentations and exchange views. Topics discussed ranged from multi-phase flow to industrial optimisation. We look forward to another diverse mix of audience and presentations at the 2009 event.
The Conference is aimed at:
- Existing open source CFD software e.g. OpenFOAM® users
