Introduction to CCP-WSI Code Developments

Date: Monday 16th September 2019
Time: 10.00am - 5.00pm
Location: Belfast
(Exact location to be confirmed)
Deadline for registrations: 29 August 2019

Description and Aim

The Introduction to CCP-WSI Code Developments workshop is a free to attend training event hosted at Queen’s University Belfast. This workshop forms the first day of the CCP-WSI Hackathon but is open to all and will showcase some of the key code developments currently held within the CCP-WSI Code Repository. The workshop will be a ‘hands-on’ event giving attendees the chance to try out some of the exciting new features being developed by the WSI community. The aim of the event is to bring together researchers in the field of wave structure interaction, provide training on the use of specific WSI code developments and demonstrate the value of working collaboratively on open-source software. A basic understanding of running OpenFOAM simulations is assumed and some experience using Git is preferred (although not essential).


All attendees will need to bring a laptop running LINUX OS with OpenFOAM installed and the CCP-WSI Code Repository cloned. Further instructions regarding preparation will be added soon.


Please register via the tab above by 29 August 2019. Note if you are applying for a place on the 1st CCP-WSI Hackathon and wish to attend this workshop as well then please tick the relevant checkbox on the application page. There is no need to register here in addition.
