Third GMSH Workshop, Lanzarote, 29-31 March 2017

The workshop

The Third Gmsh Workshop will be held on the beautiful island of Lanzarote at hotel Los Jameos Playa on March 29-31, 2017. The first two Gmsh Workshops were held in Belgium in 2011 and 2013.

The goal of Gmsh workshops is to gather the Gmsh community. It is the opportunity to share experiences about the software: meshing using Gmsh with external solvers and post-processing with Gmsh. Besides, this third workshop will hold a debug session. The workshop's format is largely informal, aiming at sharing experiences on software and coding and at building a road map for further developments.

Important dates:

February 24: close of Early bird registrations
March 10: close of registrations
March 29-31: workshop


250€ (200€ early bird) include participation of the workshop, social activities, coffee break and lunches.

About Gmsh

Gmsh is a three-dimensional finite element mesh generator with built-in pre- and post-processing facilities. Its design goal is to provide a fast, light and user-friendly meshing tool with various inputs and advanced visualization capabilities. Gmsh is built around four modules: geometry, mesh, solver and post-processing. All geometrical, mesh, solver and post-processing instructions are prescribed either interactively using the graphical user interface or in text files using Gmsh’s own scripting language.

Gmsh uses a boundary representation to describe geometries. Models are created in a bottom-up flow by successively defining points, oriented lines, oriented surfaces and volumes. Groups of geometrical entities can also be defined, based on these elementary geometric entities. Gmsh’s scripting language allows all geometrical entities to be fully parametrized.
