Trilinos User Group Meeting 2010

Trilinos User Group Meeting
November 1st -- November 4th, 2010
Albuquerque, NM
Contact: Mike Heroux

Meeting Background

The Trilinos Project is an effort to develop algorithms and enabling technologies within an object-oriented software framework for the solution of large-scale, complex multi-physics engineering and scientific problems. A unique design feature of Trilinos is its focus on packages. Full details of Trilinos and links to package websites can be found at the Trilinos home page.

Meeting Overview

In an effort to facilitate communication between Trilinos users, clients and developers, we host an annual user group meeting.


Note that the time reserved for talks includes time for discussion.


The TUG 2010 schedule is shown below. Links to slides for some talks are available. Streaming Video is now available for most user-focused talks.

*Denotes that the streaming video link points to a collection of TUG videos, and the specified talk is not the first in the collection. In these cases, we list the time at which the specified talk starts, as well as the slide number that the talk starts on. (The slide numbers can be seen by hovering over the small slides near the bottom of the screen.)
