Workshops

Overview

An integral component of PFHub is regular workshops and associated hackathons. Approximately twice a year, a spectrum of United States and international researchers, ranging from graduate students to senior scientists, come together to participate. These workshops help us formulate, test, and revise the benchmark problems. They are also a valuable venue for gathering additional feedback, such as helping developers of open-source codes find out how easily their software can be installed. Significant portions of the workshops are devoted to discussion, which helps the community become more integrated and enables us to work together to determine future needs and avenues of work.
