GPPS Chania20: Online Conference

Due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, the GPPS Executive Committee and the Chania20 Organizing Committee decided to organize a purely virtual technical conference, which took place on the 7th-9th September, 2020.

The GPPS virtual technical conference provided high-quality content, including parallel paper presentations, invited keynotes, tutorials, and dedicated sessions for open access geometries and data sets. Further, the GPPS Journal Editor Prof. Li He held a session informing the attendees about the recent developments regarding the GPPS journal.

Registered participants of the GPPS virtual technical conference have been the first to receive geometries and data sets from selected engineering institutes across the globe.


In the public domain, there are very few turbomachinery geometries and accompanying validation data. To combat this shortage, the GPPS Chania20 technical conference featured special sessions dedicated to:

a) presenting the geometries and data sets, and their release plan to researchers, and
b) enabling discussion and access to any upcoming test cases.


The strategy of GPPS has been to make this data readily available to all researchers, and we invite any new research conducted with this data to be presented at future GPPS conferences.
