FORT WORTH, TX (6 November 2012) – Pointwise is offering the opportunity for customers to vote on the topic for an hour-long short course to be presented at the Pointwise User Group Meeting 19-20 March 2013. The short course will be offered in addition to training on new features and special topics.

To vote for one of the following short course topics, go to www.pointwise.com/shortcourse:

  1. Tips for automating your meshing process using journaling
  2. Getting past the blank screen and creating structured block topology
  3. Making the transition from structured to unstructured meshing
  4. Meshing forensics: How to recover when things go wrong
  5. Plugging into your process and the benefits of interoperability

Votes will be tallied and the winning course announced on 15 November.

The Pointwise User Group Meeting is an opportunity for engineers to hear about the work of their peers in computational fluid dynamics, as well as meet with vendors and learn about the future of Pointwise. Papers are continuing to be accepted for consideration as presentations. Presentations are to be 30 minutes long, including the time for questions and answers. Training seminar and general session fees will be waived for all presenters.

A copy of the presentation materials, rather than a formal written paper, is all that is necessary. Submissions of a brief abstract (500 words or less) should be made by 15 November. The abstract should describe computational fluid dynamics or similar computational work for which Pointwise or Gridgen was used for meshing. Email the abstract in plain text, Microsoft Word or PDF formats to ugm@pointwise.com. Include contact information in the email.

For additional information about presentations, see the Call for Papers at www.pointwise.com/ugm.
