Seventh deal.II Users and Developers Workshop

Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA;   August 6-9, 2019

Program and schedule

Folder with slides and other documents

The program is a mixture of scheduled talks, pop-up talks on topics of interest, and plenty of time to work on projects of your in small groups surrounded by others working on similar questions. We found that this works better than spending 6 or 7 hours listening to talks every day. The principal focus of the workshop is to make connections to others and to be productive with your projects.

We will meet every day at 9am, have lunch at 12 noon, and reconvene 1:30 to 5pm. You can stay essentially as long after that if you feel like you continue to be productive.

At the moment, we have scheduled the following talks (we try to remain flexible and may move talks as useful; time not allocated for talks is used for group work):

9am Wolfgang Bangerth: Welcome and introduction
9:30am David Wells: git, github, workflows for contributing to deal.II
