Registration deadline

The symposium is aimed at the whole community of MRST users and developers, with the purpose of showcasing novel developments, sharing experiences, and inspiring each other in new scientific directions.

Originally developed as a free, open-source software for rapid testing and development of oil and gas reservoir modelling and simulation concepts, MRST is now being applied to a range of porous media flow applications, including CO2 sequestration, hydrogen storage, geothermal energy, and advanced battery technology.

The symposium will be held online and consist of several talks and poster presentations with contributions from the core development team at SINTEF as well as the wider MRST community. The event is free to attend!
