First Nek5000 Hackathon – Register now

When: Nov. 12 (1 PM, Sunday) — Nov. 14 (5pm, Tuesday), 2017

Where: NCSA Building, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), IL, USA

Goal: The event will bring together users and developers with the intent to help new and current users bring their applications into production mode.  It will also give users a chance to provide the development team with feedback on what features or enhancements they would like to see in future releases.

Format: We are asking each of the participants (or as a team) to develop a small example demonstrating the phenomena of interest that could be shared with the rest of the user community through the NekExamples Suite. There will not be a formal presentation agenda.  We anticipate, however, several rounds of short  presentations describing the problems of interest, the features that make the problem interesting and challenging, and the anticipated ways in which the Nek team can help.  Please bring your laptops and come prepared to access your usual work sites remotely, from UIUC.

Cost: There is no formal registration fee.  Lunches will be covered.  We may collect a nominal fee for group dinners on Sunday and Monday.
