About the meeting

UPDATE: Due to current evolution of the SARS‑CoV‑2 pandemic in Germany, we have decided to hold the EuroTUG 2022 as a purely virtual meeting. A link to the virtual meeting (via Zoom) will be provided to registered participants prior to the meeting. Register here!

The European Trilinos User Group (EuroTUG) meeting series offers a platform for Europe-based users and developers of the Trilinos Project to

  • learn about recent developments in Trilinos,
  • report on their use cases and experiences with Trilinos,
  • interact with the Trilinos leadership and core developers, and
  • form a European network of Trilinos users and developers.

While the annual Trilinos User Group meeting hosted by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) in Albuquerque, NM, serves as the main community event for Trilinos users, the EuroTUG facilitates easy access to the Trilinos community and reduced travel burdens for Europe-based researchers and application engineers who are interested in the Trilinos project.

The EuroTUG 2022 meeting will be held as a virtual meeting under the auspices of
