TOUGH Symposia

LBNL’s Energy Geosciences Division has been hosting workshops and symposia since 1995 to bring together users of the TOUGH suite of codes for an open exchange on applications and recent code enhancements. The papers presented at these workshops and symposia are available as conference proceedings; extended versions of select papers have been published in special issues of peer-reviewed journals.

The Next TOUGH Symposium

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the next symposium on applications and enhancements to the TOUGH codes for multiphase fluid, heat, and chemical transport has been postponed and is tentatively scheduled for sometime in Spring 2022. We are hoping to be able to hold the Symposium as an in-person event at the Berkeley Lab. The 2022 TOUGH Symposium will consist of oral and poster presentations. TOUGH “short courses” on select TOUGH codes will also be offered immediately preceding and/or following the symposium.

The purpose of the symposium is to bring together users of the TOUGH family of codes (which includes TOUGH2 (and TOUGH3), iTOUGH2, TMVOC, TOUGHREACT, TOUGH-FLAC, TOUGH+, TOUGH2-MP, and many others) for an open exchange on applications and recent code enhancements. Papers are solicited in all areas of TOUGH applications.
