International Meshing Roundtable History
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 developersfrom 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 Buffalo, NY, USA.
A new take on Research Notes will be part of the 28th International Meshing Roundtable. Research Abstracts begin with authors submitting extended abstracts that encompass new ideas, exploratory research, preliminary results, corrections or updates to previously published research in the field of meshing. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the IMR committee and accepted on a content and space available basis. Each research abstract will be given a 10 minute slot for presentation followed by 5 minutes for Q&A.
