An open-source framework for efficient multidisciplinary optimization.

October 2019 OpenMDAO Workshop!

NASA Glenn Research Center will be hosting a public OpenMDAO workshop on October 28 – 29th, 2019 in Cleveland Ohio. We will be meeting at the Ohio Aerospace Institute.

The primary goal for the workshop is for the broad user community get a chance to interact directly with the OpenMDAO development team in order to discuss the current and future development of the framework. We want to focus on topics surrounding current functionality and future development. In other words, we want to talk about what is working and what is not working right now, and hear about things the community would like to see for future development. Your input will help us figure out our long term development roadmap, so this is your chance to have a voice!

Click here to register for the workshop. There is no cost to attend the workshop, but we will be offering an optional catered lunch each day that will cost ~$30 (total for both days).

We are looking for community members who want to give 15 minute talks about their use of OpenMDAO. There is a space on the registration form to indicate if you would like to present. We have space for between 8-12 talks in the schedule, though if there is a lot of volunteers with good topics we will potentially devote more of day 2 to additional talks.

We need to have a head-count for the workshop, so registration is going to close on September 1st, 2019. Please register ASAP and if you are interested in giving a talk then REALLY register ASAP so we can start to figure out the presentation schedule.
