7-8th July 2015, Imperial College London
The first workshop for the Nektar++ spectral/hp framework was on 7th & 8th July 2015, at Imperial College London. The workshop ran as a general event for a number of audiences:
- Anyone interested in Nektar++, high-order finite elements, or the applications of our framework to a number of scientific fields.
- Users of Nektar++ are encouraged to discuss how they use the framework and the features that they would like to see in coming releases.
- For developers to catch up in a single location to discuss short- and long-term design, structure and architecture roadmaps.
- 7th July: a series of casual, short-format presentations from users and developers, with dinner in the evening.
- 8th July: a general group session for discussing long-term goals, new features, implementation challenges and bugs that you are finding within the current structure.

8th July 2015
Location: Seminar room 165, Skempton Building
The day will be split across two events. The first is a short course for less experienced users, covering topics such as:
- Compiling and installing Nektar++
- Generating meshes and configuring session files
- Running jobs in serial in parallel and visualising output
- A short explanation in writing solvers with some exposure to Nektar++’s API
Concurrently, we will be running a hackathon-style session for other users and developers, where you can talk to Nektar++ developers and get support for your applications.
