|About the meeting
Date and Time:
We will start Monday the 11th of May after lunch (14h) and finish Thursday the 14th.
The Pencil Code User Meeting is an annual meeting dedicated to the Pencil Code. The purpose of the meeting is to bring regular users and core developers together to discuss scientific and technical progress since the last meeting, to instigate collaborative projects and to allow new users to learn more about the code and to interact with other users and developers. This is the 11th Pencil Code User Meeting.
About the Pencil Code
The Pencil Code is a multipurpose code for massively parallel computing. It includes optionally hydrodynamics, magnetic fields, radiation, ionization, multi-species dust dynamics with coagulation, self-gravity and particles. It is developed and maintained under Subversion (SVN) by over 100 people with check-in permission and has been downloaded by many other users (without check-in permission). The code is tested nightly on several platforms and provides an excellent pedagogical tool for professional scientists as well as students to implement new code within an organized framework.
Here are some example topics that the meeting aims at covering:
Recent science results obtained with the Pencil Code
Remove all iostat=... and err=... handling, so that the clear-text error message becomes visible
Physics recently added to the code
Recently added visualization techniques
Future improvements to the code
