Basilisk/Gerris Users' Meeting 2019


d’Alembert Sorbonne CNRS


The meeting will be held on the 17–18th June 2019 at the Pierre et Marie Curie campus of Sorbonne Université in the center of Paris.

The format will be similar to earlier Basilisk/Gerris meetings held in Paris, France in 2011, Wellington, New Zealand in 2012, Sevilla, Spain in 2014 and Princeton, USA in 2017. Participants are encouraged to share their work using Basilisk or Gerris for applications in fluid mechanics, environmental science, engineering etc… Students are especially welcome to participate in this informal and friendly gathering.

Attendance is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
