2017 ADCIRC User Group Meeting and ADCIRC Boot Camp

Every year, the ADCIRC Community comes together to share experiences, teach, learn, discuss, plan, and build capacity for coastal ocean modelling with ADCIRC. These activities are organized into mutually supportive events: the ADCIRC Boot Camp and the ADCIRC Users Group Meeting. Both events will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood in Norwood, Massachusetts, USA (call 781-769-7900 for reservations and mention “2017 ADCIRC Meeting” for special rates).

The ADCIRC Boot Camp is a three day training event (May 1-3) organized by Jason Fleming of Seahorse Coastal Consulting. The Boot Camp is an intense information and training session for new ADCIRC users. It could be considered a “forced march” of knowledge transfer, hence the name “Boot Camp”.

The ADCIRC Users Group Meeting will start on Thursday, May 4 and end on Friday, May 5 and will consist of informal presentations of ADCIRC projects along with highly interactive discussions to advance the state of the art in ADCIRC modelling and to edify the ADCIRC Community as a whole. This year, FM Global is pleased to host and co-organize the ADCIRC Users Group Meeting.

The ADCIRC Users Group Meeting is open to the general public who are interested in evaluating coastal flood risk with advanced numerical models. Pre-registration is required for all attendees.
