International Meshing Roundtable Celebrates 10th Anniversary

FORT WORTH, TX (13 August 2001) – On behalf of the International Meshing Roundtable, Pointwise is pleased to announce that the conference's tenth anniversary will be celebrated when meshing researchers from around the world convene October 7-10, 2001 in Newport Beach, CA. John Chawner, Pointwise's president, is a member of this year's conference steering committee.

In 1992, Sandia National Laboratories started the International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) 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. Now after 10 consecutive years, the IMR has become recognized as an international focal point annually attended by researchers and developers from dozens of countries around the world. In October 2001, IMR attendees will enjoy the balmy weather and breathtaking beaches of Newport Beach, CA. This year's conference will be hosted by UGS, Inc. which maintains its principle development site in Southern California. More information on the IMR may be obtained from www.imr.sandia.gov/.
