Trilinos User Group Meeting
November 6 - November 8, 2007
Albuquerque, NM
Contact: Mike Heroux

Meeting Background

The Trilinos Project is an effort to develop algorithms and enabling technologies within an object-oriented software framework for the solution of large-scale, complex multi-physics engineering and scientific problems. A unique design feature of Trilinos is its focus on packages. Full details of Trilinos and links to package websites can be found at the Trilinos home page.

External Attendees

The Trilinos User Group meeting is being held outside the tech areas. This is to facilitate attendance by a broader audience. However, depending on your individual situation, special arrangements may still be necessary to attend. If you have questions please contact Mike Heroux

Meeting Overview

In an effort to facilitate communication between Trilinos users, clients and developers, we are holding a user group meeting. Presentation times, titles and abstracts will be available in the near future.

Meeting Format

We have structured the meeting in an attempt to make the best use of participants' time. In particular, presentation titles and abstracts are linked below, along with a description of the intended audience for each talk. Similar talks are scheduled together, and discussion periods are schedule after a collection of talks in order to facilitate user/developer discussions on particular topics.

Program

Note that talks will be 45 minutes, with the final 15 minutes reserved for discussion.
