MRST Symposium

We are very happy to announce that we will be holding our second MRST Symposium on the 26th and 27th September 2023. This will be held online and will be free to attend. 

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. 

The symposium will consist of several talks and poster presentations with contributions from the core development team at SINTEF as well as the wider MRST community.
