When: October 29-31, 2013 

Where: Texas A&M University; College Station, Texas


Texas A&M University, the Center for LArge-Scale Scientific Simulations (CLASS), and the Institute for Scientific Computing (ISC) will be hosting a 3-day workshop on the Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE).

MOOSE is a versatile multiphysics software platform developed at the Idaho National Laboratory and is currently used by 50 universities, national laboratories, and international groups and institutes. MOOSE's framework allows for rapid development of new simulations tools, simplifying the use of multiple physics components. As of today, 30 MOOSE-based applications have been developed.  More information regarding MOOSE can be obtained on YouTube or in the INL press release.

Registration for the workshop is FREE, but we kindly request that you register so that we can reserve an appropriate room for the event.
