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 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Pittsburgh is the 22nd largest metropolitan area in the United States. The city is located on the Allegheny Plateau, where the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers merge to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh features a skyline of 151 high-rise buildings, 446 bridges, two inclined railways and a pre-revolutionary fortification. The Downtown area between the rivers is known as the Golden Triangle, and the site at the actual convergence, which is occupied by Point State Park, is referred to simply as "the Point." In addition to the downtown Golden Triangle, the city extends northeast to include the Oakland and Shadyside sections, which are home to the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Carnegie Museum and Library, and many other educational, medical, and cultural institutions.
