October 13 - 15, 2020 - OpenFOAM Conference goes virtual
Join us for this exciting on-line experience
With so much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, ESI OpenCFD is pleased to announce that the currently scheduled in-person conference has changed to a virtual, on-line only, conference. If you would like to interact with other users and developers from across the world-wide OpenFOAM community, without the need for travel, and participate in the current and future governance of OpenFOAM, then join us for this exciting format.
This is the primary OpenFOAM event in all areas of CFD applications and process integration; useful for CFD engineers, managers, IT specialists, developers, consultants, researchers, students, and those seeking continuing professional development.
Benefit from an exciting mix of live and prerecorded presentations, live panel discussions and various networking activities. Create your own flexible agenda and get in touch with the OpenFOAM community.
