The annual OpenFOAM Workshop is becoming a very popular forum for researchers and users from universities, institutes as well as industries to promote collaborative activities and share recent advances regarding code development and applications in areas related to OpenFOAM. It is a community event opening to all users and contributors, regardless of their background and interest.

On behalf of the OpenFOAM Workshop Committee, Shanghai Jiao Tong University would like to invite you to attend the 13th OpenFOAM Workshop, which will be held from June 24th to 29th, 2018 in Shanghai, China.

Following are the programs of the OpenFOAM workshop:

– Training Sessions (day 1) – Providing free training on the theory and use of OpenFOAM and on related pre- and post-processing tools and processes from some of the experienced users and developers of the code. These sessions are for not only beginners but also for advanced users and developers.

– Plenary and parallel sessions (day2-day4) – Presenting validation results, examples of application and recent developments in the code. Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract (4 pages max) to present your work as a presentation or poster. All submissions will be given a peer review. The selected contributors will also be invited to contribute full papers to these journals:
