MRST - MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox

MRST Symposium 2021


The first MRST Symposium took place online from 14th / 15th September 2021. The event had 169 registered participants and brought together a range of MRST users with many, varying interests with the aim of sharing experiences and inspiring each other in new scientific directions. The symposium consisted of 9 plenary talks from prominent users, panel discussions with the opportunity to meet the developers here at SINTEF, and a poster session featuring 17 different contribution. The event was free to attend.
