In 1992, Sandia National Laboratories started the Meshing Roundtable as a small meeting of like-minded companies and organizations striving to establish a common focus for research and development in the field of mesh and grid generation. Sandia National Laboratories continues to organize the International Meshing Roundtable, which has become recognized as an international focal point annually attended by researchers and developers from dozens of countries around the world.
The International Meshing Roundtable
continues to focus on bringing together researchers and developers from academia,
national labs and industry in a stimulating,
open environment to share technical information related to mesh generation
and general pre-processing techniques. This year's Roundtable will be held
in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. Birmingham, Alabama offers classic Southern charm
and hospitality. With the foothills of the Appalachians as a dramatic backdrop,
Birmingham is laid out on a series of lush rolling hills, with woodland-covered
neighborhoods. This Southern city has its own cosmopolitan personality. Anyone
visiting the city should take great delight in the beauty of fine Southern
cooking as well. Birmingham is also home to the Birmingham Museum of Art, which
is the largest municipal museum in the Southeast and one of the finest regional
museums in the country. However, it is diversity that is Birmingham's greatest
strength and strongest appeal, with a spectrum of attitudes and cultures that
are all a part of the charm and intrigue that is Birmingham.
Events at Roundtable Include:
Sandia National Laboratory
Geometry and Meshing Technical Review
East Meeting Room A
Following the regularly scheduled events at the International Meshing Roundtable, Sandia National Laboratories will be hosting its annual Technical Review. This event will be open to the public. The CUBIT Geometry and Mesh Generation Toolkit has been funded by the US Department of Energy and developed by Sandia for over a decade. In addition to supporting a user-base of 100’s, it also serves as a framework for new geometry and mesh generation algorithms and research. The purpose of the Technical Review is to present current research and development activities currently underway in the CUBIT team and to solicit feedback from other experts in the field. This will be an informal forum where CUBIT developers will present aspects of their current research and development activities. Following the open session, a panel of invited experts will be asked to provide formal recommendations to the CUBIT team. The results of the panel will be considered in setting future directions for the project.
