Dear OpenMC community

We are organising monthly drop in sessions for 2022 :tada:

This will be an opportunity for:

:point_right: Contributors to present their plans / ideas for code contributions (limited to 5 mins per talk)
:point_right: Developers to present future plans for OpenMC (limited to 5 mins per talk)
:point_right: New users to ask questions and learn about the ecosystem
:point_right: Poster session with poster stands

The format could evolve over the year with feedback :arrows_counterclockwise: from participants.

Just a small note to mention the times have just been updated on the original post above and are now more suitable for Chicago attendees

Just posting here to reminder people that the next monthly meet up is coming up on Thursday the 31st, we have had good turn out to the first two events with about 8 people turning up to each event.

Great turn out today, lots of interesting conversations.


Just to mention that the next regular monthly meet up is tomorrow (29th/April/2022). It fits in nicely with the last day of the NEA training course, hope to see some new attendees.

Just to mention the next monthly meet up is tomorrow (31st of May). Times and calendar invite at the top of this thread. I think there will be some presentation on various topics, I aim to present some testing, packaging and extending of the openmc-dev/data repository that I’ve been working on a separate fork.

The next monthly drop-in session is coming up on Friday, June 29. Times and the calendar invite are at the top of this thread. I think @paulromano has an update on some fusion neutronics work. I’ll come up with a short update as well – maybe on the unstructured mesh VTK work that @kellythomas has been interested in.
