Event description


ADCIRC Users Group Meeting Speaker and Audience

Every year, the ADCIRC Community comes together to share experiences, discuss, plan, and build capacity for coastal ocean modelling with ADCIRC. This year, this event will be held at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory in Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA.

The two day ADCIRC Users’ Group Meeting will start on Monday, May 20 and end on Tuesday, May 21. The Meeting is informal with a commitment to open discussion of shared experiences, allowing the user community to advance their knowledge and skill in developing, implementing, and applying the ADCIRC family of models. Student attendance and participation are strongly encouraged.


The agenda is presently being planned with 20 minute presentation time slots intended to spawn interactive discussions. Some possible general topics for the meeting include the following:

  • model development (coupling, 3D, DG, winds, waves, etc.)
  • model applications (focusing on ADCIRC model capabilities and performance)
  • real-time forecasting using the ADCIRC models and operational issues
  • pre/post processing issues

Suggestions for other topic areas are welcome.

When registering for the ADCIRC Users Group Meeting, you will be asked whether you intend to present at the meeting, and if so, what the title of your presentation will be. You can consider your presentation accepted unless we contact you to indicate otherwise. The registration deadline to secure a 20 minute presentation time slot is 31 March 2019.

ADCIRC Community Awards

Answering questions on the ADCIRC mailing list, writing documentation, and contributing to our shared software infrastructure are all critical to advancing our goals and keeping our community vibrant. As a result, we solicit nominations for the ADCIRC Community Man of the Year and ADCIRC Community Woman of the Year to recognize and honor these contributions, which go above and beyond our day to day duties and responsibilities.

ADCIRC Community Award Winners

Please think carefully about those who have made significant contributions to our community and take the time to nominate them with a concise description of their contributions when you register. All nominees will be recognized by having their nomination(s) read aloud at the meeting on Monday. The two winners will then be announced at the UGM Dinner on Monday night.
