The annual OpenFOAM Workshop is the most important and influential forum for researchers and users from universities, institutes as well as industries to promote collaborative activities and share recent advances on OpenFOAM in many areas. It is an attractive community event opening to scientists, scholars, engineers, students, users and contributors, regardless of their background and avocations. In 2006, the 1 st OpenFOAM Workshop (OFW1) was held in Zagreb, Croatia. Since then it was held every year successively in Zagreb, Milan, Montréal, Gothenburg, Pennsylvania, Darmstadt, Jeju, Zagreb, Ann Arbor, Guimarães and Exeter, respectively.
