FREE Training at the 2012 FLOW-3D World Users Conference

Flow Science will offer free advanced FLOW-3D training geared towards the hydraulics and general CFD applications, on Wednesday, September 12 at the conference hotel. In addition, Flow Science and CEI staff will give a joint training on the embedded version of EnSight into FLOW-3D. CEI, Inc. is the exclusive visualization sponsor for the conference.

Read more about the planned integration of EnSight into FLOW-3D.

Conference attendees can sign up for both advanced FLOW-3D training sessions or one FLOW-3D session and one EnSight session. Sign up for training sessions when you register online for the conference. Lunch will be provided by Flow Science.

Location and Directions

The training will be held in Banquet ABC and the Amador Rooms. Both rooms are located in the conference center at the Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf.
