Awards of funding to students will be based on active research in mesh generation or interest in meshing as a future research topic. Click here for more information.


Please join us for the 16th International Meshing Roundtable!

Seattle, Washington, USA, October 14-17, 2007
(This conference is open to the public.)

In 1992, Sandia National Laboratories started the Meshing Roundtable as a small meeting of like-minded companies and organizations striving to establish a common focus for research and development in the field of mesh and grid generation. Sandia National Laboratories continues to organize the International Meshing Roundtable, which has become recognized as an international focal point annually attended by researchers and developers from dozens of countries around the world.

The International Meshing Roundtable continues to focus on bringing together researchers and developers from academia, national labs and industry in a stimulating, open environment to share technical information related to mesh generation and general pre-processing techniques. This year's Roundtable will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA. Seattle’s stunning natural beauty combined with cosmopolitan big city culture attracts businesses and visitors from all over the world. From the stately flanks of its Cascade volcanoes to the stony shores of its myriad waterways, the region offers an unmatched wealth of activities. It is home to the world’s largest airplane manufacturer, the largest software company in the world, leading gourmet coffee company and one of the world’s leading cancer research centers. The Greater Seattle region, with a metropolitan population of over three million, is the commercial, educational, cultural and transportation hub of the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Events at Roundtable Include:


Sandia National Laboratory
Geometry and Meshing Technical Review
1:30PM-5:00PM Wednesday
(Studio 7 & 8)

Following the regularly scheduled events at the International Meshing Roundtable, Sandia National Laboratories will be hosting its annual Technical Review. This event will be open to the public. The CUBIT Geometry and Mesh Generation Toolkit has been funded by the US Department of Energy and developed by Sandia for over a decade. In addition to supporting a user-base of 100’s, it also serves as a framework for new geometry and mesh generation algorithms and research. The purpose of the Technical Review is to present current research and development activities currently underway in the CUBIT team and to solicit feedback from other experts in the field. This will be an informal forum where CUBIT developers will present aspects of their current research and development activities. Following the open session, a panel of invited experts will be asked to provide formal recommendations to the CUBIT team. The results of the panel will be considered in setting future directions for the project.
