Date: 19th-21st September 2016
Location: York Plasma Institute, University of York, UK YO10 5DQ
The BOUT++ code is a flexible tool for the simulation of plasma fluid equations, primarily focussed on tokamak edge simulations. This workshop will combine hands-on training in using BOUT++ with lectures on tokamak edge physics, numerical simulation techniques, and related topics. All those with an interest in using BOUT++ or in tokamak edge simulation, are invited to attend. There is no fee.
The aim of this workshop is (1) to prepare researchers to use and further develop the BOUT++ code for edge turbulence, transport, and ELM simulations of magnetic fusion devices; and (2) to promote effective collaboration within the BOUT++ community and beyond.
Registration: Anyone interested in attending should contact Ben Dudson (email@example.com) by August 31st.
Slides will, when possible, be shared on EUROfusion TV channel 5. Note that many demonstrations may need to use local computers and so may not be shared. There is a password, please ask one of the organisers.
