Hi everybody,

we already posted this to the website, but since not everybody is subscribed to the announcement
mailing list, here it is again:

The Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at Heidelberg University will host its annual
DUNE and PDELab course on March 7-11, 2016.

This one week course provides an introduction to the most important DUNE modules and especially to
DUNE-PDELab. At the end the attendees will have a solid knowledge of the simulation workflow from
mesh generation and implementation of finite element and finite volume methods to visualization of the
results. Topics covered are the solution of stationary and time-dependent problems, as well as local
adaptivity, the use of parallel computers and the solution of non-linear PDE's and systems of PDE’s.

For this year’s course, we have adopted a lot of the C++11 features supported in DUNE 2.4, which greatly
simplifies many of the common programming tasks in DUNE.

The exercises for the course will be set up a little differently this time: Instead of doing the exercises in one
of our computer pools, participants should bring their own laptops and use those for the exercises. This lets
you easily take home the exercises and gives you a working DUNE environment to start from when you want
to really start working with DUNE after the course.

Each participant will get a USB stick with a VirtualBox VM containing a working installation of DUNE and the course
exercises. Your laptop should fulfil the following minimum requirements:

- 2 Cores
- 4 GB RAM
- 64 bit operating system
- Current version of VirtualBox

On some laptops, VirtualBox will only work after Virtualization (VT-d) in the BIOS.

If you do not have a laptop that you can bring, please let us know when you sign up; we have a limited number of laptops
available here in Heidelberg.

Registration deadline: Monday, February 15, 2016
Dates: March 7, 2016 - March 11, 2016

Course venue: Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing
University of Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 350/368
69120 Heidelberg, Germany

Fee: The fee for this course is 225 EUR including course material, the USB stick (which you can keep), coffee and lunch breaks
as well as course dinner on Wednesday.

Best regards,
