Mona Richter from the Agricultural Centre at BASF, Limburgerhof, was a worthy winner of one of the Best Paper Winners at the Stuttgart COMSOL Conference. Treating soil as a bioreactor, she, together with Sylvia Moenickes, Otto Richter, and Tom Schröder, looked at reaction-diffusion processes and biofilms.

The Bangalore Conference is drawing to a close today and I’m sure we’ll see some great stuff from them next week. But another Conference that was actually completed in October should also be mentioned. COMSOL’s partner in China, CnTech, ran a pair of very successful COMSOL Conferences in Beijing and Shanghai on October 18 and 25 respectively.

Held over two days (on November 4th & 5th), this conference includes Keynote talks, user presentations, minicourses and a poster session. There will also be a Networking Dinner on Friday evening.

Today, Bernt Nilsson, COMSOL’s VP of Marketing is at the Stuttgart conference and was kind enough to give his impressions of the proceedings. “Today’s conference kicked off with the Branch Manager for COMSOL Germany, Bernhard Fluche, who welcomed us to this year’s COMSOL Conference. Despite a public transport strike, about 400 people had filled up the Schlosspark Ludwigsburg auditorium.

The minicourses are always a favorite part of the COMSOL Conferences. They give you a chance to train with COMSOL experts in a wide variety of topics. An introductory minicourse will be held on Wednesday night along with more specific courses concerning particular modules or application areas. These will continue during Thursday and Friday.

Three days were filled with interesting keynote lectures, attractive user presentations and posters, and a conference dinner on Thursday evening.

COMSOL is an integral part of Oak Ridge’s modeling The second winner of the Best Paper Award went to David Chandler from the University of Tennessee who, together with colleagues from Oak Ridge National Lab, looked at COMSOL-Based Nuclear Reactor Kinetics Studies. David actually had quite a trip just to get to the conference. He had to leave Knoxville quite late, and then problems in Washington meant a forced stay-over. Then, when getting to Boston, he had to hunt around […]

The Conference is sponsored by a number of partners to COMSOL, which include software vendors, certified consultants, and technical magazines. A number of them will be in attendance in the Bürgersaal-Foyer, where the Poster Session will take place.

The Stuttgart Conference includes Keynote Speakers from the US, Germany, the UK, and the Netherlands. Having seen Svante Littmarck present at the Boston Conference, I can say that this will be a very interesting presentation for all attendees. The new products, the Particle Tracing Module and LiveLink for Creo Parametric, will be demonstrated, and a number of the major new features in 4.2a will be summarized.
