Users' Meeting and Conference 2012


May 3-4, 2012 | Potsdam, Germany

We would like to invite you to our Users’ Meeting and Conference, scheduled from May 3-4, 2012 in Potsdam, Germany.

The focus of the conference is on parametric modeling of complex free-form surfaces with flow related tasks, integration of commercial and non-commercial CFD packages as well as general CFD-based design studies and formal shape optimizations.

We aim to make the meeting a comfortable platform for exploration, exchange and discussion in which presentations by the users of the FRIENDSHIP-Framework compose the core modules, presenting use cases and sharing experience.
