The topic of the ALERT Doctoral School 2017 is Discrete Element Modeling. The last day of the school will consist of practical sessions for different levels of DEM users (beginner or advanced users). In order to prepare these sessions and have as few delays as possible, we ask the participants for the following:
Please bring your laptop or organize in small groups — a limited number of laptops will be provided by the organizers.
DEM for beginners: For this practical session, the organizers will provide bootable USB keys with OS (linux) and DEM programs pre-installed. Please check the procedure to boot on an external usb pen drive (which can be tricky with a very new laptop).
DEM for experts: For this practical session, students have to bring their own laptops. It is strongly recommended to install the software http://mercuryDPM.org. There is an installation instruction on the homepage or in the last chapter of the ALERT School book (the complete book will be published after the meeting in Aussois).
This year a new Board of Directors (BoD) is going to be elected on Monday, 2nd of October 2017, during the General Assembly (18:00-18:30) in Aussois. Continue reading
