2nd Open Source CFD International Conference in Berlin another great success

ICON organized the 2008 conference which 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 was aimed at:

– Existing open source CFD software e.g. OpenFOAM® users
– CFD Engineers seeking to investigate open source technology
– Industry Managers and IT Implementers
– Academia
– Technology Consultants

Amongst the industrial and academic contributors were key notes from Henry Weller from OpenCFD Ltd. discussing the Further Development of OpenFOAM, Jan Wildeboer of Red Hat who described Building Communities based on Open Standards and Open Source at Red Hat, alongside ICON who showed their FOAMpro GUI in their presentation on Open Source CFD in Practice – A Path to Industrial Scale Applications.
