## Summary The meeting was held at [Princeton University](http://www.princeton.edu), United States on the 15-16th November 2017. The format was similar to earlier Basilisk/Gerris meetings held in Paris, France in 2011, Wellington, New Zealand in 2012 and Sevilla, Spain in 2014. Participants were encouraged to share their work using Basilisk or Gerris for applications in fluid mechanics, environmental science, engineering etc... Students were especially welcome to participate in this informal and friendly gathering. ### Conference location The conference took place in [Maeder Hall](http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/428100744) within the Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment, within the Engineering school and Princeton's campus. ## Program

Where will the next BGUM be? * Basilisk/Gerris for industrial applications * How could we improve the basilisk tutorial in a collaborative way leading to a reference manual? The following dicussions were not held (due mostly to lack of time): * Who wants to be/should be the next maintainer for Gerris? / future of Gerris * What priorities / improvements / new features for Basilisk? * Should we start a new "open/libre journal of computational mechanics/physics" for publication of free software codes, documented/reproducible results etc. ## Previous meetings * [Meeting on Numerical challenges in two-phase flows 2014](http://gfs.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Meeting_on_Numerical_challenges_in_two-phase_flows) * [Gerris users' meeting 2012](http://gfs.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Gerris_users%27_meeting_2012) * [Gerris users' meeting 2011](http://gfs.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Gerris_users%27_meeting_2011)
