GTT Users’ Meeting 2020

GTT Technologies yearly invites users of its software family to join the GTT Users’ Meeting. The 22nd edition of the Users’ Meeting this year will be taking place from June 24th to 26th and will be an excellent opportunity for users to share their experience on computational thermochemistry amongst themselves and with GTT’s team of software developers.

Presentations on thermochemical applications show the broad variety of possibilities and its potential to improve basic academic research, industrial products and process development.

For an idea of the meeting’s format, feel free to take a look at the records of previous meetings:

We are planning three topical sessions:

  1. Metallurgical Applications with a focus on CO2 avoidance and on aspects related to the circular economy
  2. Combustion simulations with a focus on biomass
  3. Salts with a focus on thermal storage

Additionally, we will offer a brand-new session called “Hands-on with GTT’s Expertise”, where you will be introduced to selected advanced features of GTT’s programs, under the guidance of GTT’s specialists. We are currently preparing the list of presentations, so if you are working on one of the topics and are interested in giving a presentation at the GTT Users’ Meeting 2020, please contact us by sending an email to jr@gtt-technologies.de.
