Workshop 2013

The workshop and user meeting is aimed at bringing together MatCalc users for discussion of problems and exchange of ideas. During the two days, experienced MatCalc trainers are available to provide tips and tricks as well as worked examples. The participants are asked to provide short presentations of their experience / solutions / problems, which will serve as starting points for deeper discussion. This workshop is particularly valuable for users with a certain degree of experience, since the problems discussed will require basic skills in the use of the software as well as understanding of problems in thermodynamics and kinetics. It is likely to be of limited value for MatCalc newbies. The MatCalc workshop and user meeting is held at a time when Vienna exhibits lots of very nice Christmas markets. We are going to visit one of them in the evening ...

The sixth MatCalc workshop took place on Dec 12. & 13. 2013 in Vienna. MatCalc applications on the problems proposed by the participants were shown. The group which attented this workshop consisted of 8 people, from university and industry, plus Ernst who was the supervisor. See the list below for further details.
