XIXth TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference - October 18-19

The XIXth TELEMAC-MASCARET Users Conference took place on the 18th and 19th October 2012. It was held in Oxford in the United Kingdom. Training courses and workshops were organised the two days preceding the conference in nearby Wallingford at the headquarters of HR Wallingford. The conference itself was held in St Hughs College in Oxford. More than 90 persons registered for the conference and more than 50 for the workshop. It has provided the ideal opportunity for all to learn more about the TELEMAC-MASCARET system, meet fellow scientists and engineers, and discover the famous city 'of dreaming spires'.

The conference proceedings are available as a PDF document.

On behalf of the consortium, a big thank you to the participants for making this event a great success.
