Meshers to Cluster in Ithaca this September

for 11th International Meshing Roundtable

FORT WORTH, TX (8 February 2002) – On behalf of the International Meshing Roundtable, Pointwise is pleased to announce that the 11th annual convergence of meshing researchers from around the world will occur September 15-18, 2002 in Ithaca, New York. 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 11 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 September 2002, IMR attendees will enjoy the gorges, waterfalls, lakes, and rolling hills of Ithaca, New York.

This year's conference will be hosted by Cornell University with contributions from Moldflow Corporation and the National Science Foundation Information Technology Research (NSF/ITR) Adaptive Software Project.
