Gothenburg Region OpenFOAM User Group Meeting, November 21st, 2018

Send a mail to if you are interested in participating. The presentation slots are filled in as I get contributions. The meeting is free of charge and open to anyone (Gothenburg, Sweden, Europe etc.), and the purpose is to bring together people working with OpenFOAM to get to know each other and share experiences. It is in particular a good occasion for OpenFOAM users at the SNIC resources (from all of Sweden) to meet and learn from each other.


·         There is a LinkedIn group (named OFGBG) that can be used to stay in contact also before and after the meeting:

·         The meeting is an official meeting place for OpenFOAM users at the SNIC resources all over Sweden.

·         I have made a reservation of the lunch room in the evening, 17:00-20:00, so that people can stay and meet over some light food. However, for that I need one (or more) sponsor(s). Please get back to me if you are able to sponsor the event.

Please join the LinkedIn group OFGBG:




Teknikparken, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
