MeshTrends VII

7th Symposium on Trends in Unstructured Mesh Generation

July 16-19, 2009 Columbus, Ohio

Symposium Schedulenew

The list of speakers and titles is now availble here (pdf).

The Symposium on Trends in Unstructured Mesh Generation brings together a wide variety of disciplines for the exchange of technical information related to unstructured mesh generation. It is a symposium traditionally held in conjunction with the national and international computational mechanics congresses. The following is a list of previous MeshTrends symposia:
MeshTrends I 1997 Joint ASME/ASCE/SES Summer Meeting Northwestern University
MeshTrends II 1999 5th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics University of Colorado, Boulder
MeshTrends III 2001 6th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics Dearborn, Michigan
MeshTrends IV 2003 7th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics Albuquerque, New Mexico
MeshTrends V 2006 7th World Congress on Computational Mechanics Los Angeles, California
MeshTrends VI 2007 9th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics San Francisco, California

Scope of Symposium

Automatic unstructured mesh generation continues to be a vital technology in computational field simulations. As computing technology continues to advance and modeling requirements become more precise, automatic mesh generation techniques must rise to fulfill ever-increasing and diverse expectations. This symposium is a forum for exploring and synthesizing many of technologies needed to develop a computational grid suitable for simulation.

All abstracts related to geometry and mesh generation for computational simulation are welcome. In this symposium we are soliciting, in particular, advancements and trends from academics and industry in the following areas:
  • Hexahedral mesh generation: including theoretical foundations and new algorithms for automatic all-hex methods.
  • Meshing tools and applications: including commercial meshing tools and their application to current problems in industry.
  • Multiphysics meshing issues: including tools and methods for managing meshing and geometry for mutiscale, mutliphysics applications.
  • Infrastructure and tools for meshing: including APIs and tools for managing and interfacing meshing tools.
  • Adaptive meshing tools and applications: including tools and methods for adaptively modifying mesh and geometry based on run-time results or optimization parameters.
  • Meshing and geometry for geophysics applications: including geometry and meshing technologies for subsurface modeling and simulation.
  • Meshing and geometry for biomedical applications: including geometry and meshing technologies for biomedical applications.
  • Geometry repair and improvement for mesh generation: including tools and methods for characterizing dirty geometry and improvement techniques for mesh generation.

Abstract Submission

Abstracts are required for the conference and will be included in the conference proceedings. A one-page abstract must be submitted electronically through the USNCCM10 website. The deadline for abstracts was Feb 28, 2009.

Once you enter the abstract submission webpage at you will be asked to create a login and password. Note the number of the Trends in Unstructured Mesh Generation Symposium is 2.18.2. You will need to use that number in your abstract file name to ensure your abstract is submitted to the correct symposium (see below for more information).

The following information regarding abstract submission also appears on the abstract submission webpage.
Abstract Submission Information and Related Policies (Please read carefully)
  1. Each paid registrant at USNCCM-10 will be limited to one presentation. Please identify the presenting author in your abstract by underlining the last name.
  2. Participants may be the author of multiple abstracts. However, he/she will be limited to being the presenting author on only one abstract.
  3. Please submit a one-page abstract using the format shown here. Your submission must be in a pdf format to be submitted.
  4. Your filename should contain the last names of the authors as they appear in the title, followed by the number of your selected minisymposium. Example: Ghosh Joseph 2.18.2.pdf
    (Note the Trends in Unstructured Mesh Generation Symposium is number 2.18.2)
  5. The following specifications should be followed in the abstract pdf.
    • Each abstract should be limited to 1-page. The file size should be limited to 1 MB.
    • Recommended font: Times Roman;
    • Title font size: 14 Boldface; Abstract font size: 12;
    • Line spacing: single space; Number of References: maximum of 2.

  6. Important: Save your logon and password; you may use them again when registering to attend the Congress in Spring 2009.

Once submitted, your abstract will be reviewed by the organizers of your selected mini-symposium. You will receive an email notification that the abstract has been received. We anticipate that notification of your abstract acceptance or rejection will be made 30 days after the close of abstract submission as published on the conference web site.

Paper Submission

As part of this symposium, full papers will be solicited from the accepted presentations for inclusion in a peer-reviewed special journal edition of Engineering With Computers. Publication solicitation will be based on the interest of the participating authors and the technical merit of the presentation. Invitations for paper submissions will be made following the USNCCM.
