OpenMDAO Logo

An open-source framework for efficient multidisciplinary optimization.

2022 OpenMDAO Workshop — Now with more Mphys!

With the OpenMDAO community converging (pun intended!) on NASA Glenn Research Center for the
OpenMDAO Workshop, the Mphys community will be using the opportunity to hold a one day workshop on Oct. 26th. That is ​immediately following the OpenMDAO Workshop on October 24th and 25th.
Mphys is a collaboratively developed OpenMDAO library which is tackling
one of the major barriers to wider adoption of high-fidelity MDAO:
modularity through standardized interfaces for the coupling of multiphysics problems.

The Mphys Workshop will be an opportunity to learn more about multiphysics optimization and see the types of problems people are applying it to.
It will also be a chance to participate in the planning for the next steps of Mphys development.

Whether you’ve been collaborating with us on Mphys for years or will be new to Mphys,
we’re looking forward to seeing you there! Register here.
If you are not able to join us in person, we are planning to have a virtual attendance option.
Stay tuned for more information on that
