1 ANNOUNCEMENT of the 4th Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West USA & Canada OpenFOAM Users Group Meeting (Pittsburgh, PA, Oct 20, 2012)

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
