MRST Symposium

The second MRST symposium was held on 26th and 27th September 2023.

The symposium had over 190 registered participants and consisted of several talks and poster presentations with contributions from the core development team at SINTEF as well as the wider MRST community.

Watch all the recorded talks here.

Special Edition

As a follow-up to the 2023 MRST Symposium we are pleased to announce that there will be a special issue in Advances in Geo-Energy Research (AGER) dedicated to works that make use of the MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST). Submission is open to all authors regardless of whether they presented at the MRST Symposium or not.

Further information about how to submit to the special edition can be found here.
