Workshop on Finite Element Methods

2015-08-15 ~ 2015-08-16

Peking University

August 15-16, 2015

The finite element method (FEM) is a standard numerical method in scientific and engineering computing. The aim of the workshop is to bring together finite element researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas regarding recent developments of FEM theories and methods (such as adaptive and multilevel algorithms, finite element exterior calculus) for problems ranging from basic model problems to multi-physical systems in industrial applications. Workshop attendees will be encouraged to go across their disciplinary boarder lines to share their ideas and problems. Invited speakers are suggested to begin with their talks with introductory materials which would make it easier for junior researchers to understand the talks and to participate the discussions.

This workshop will be integrated into a series of scientific activities, including workshops, seminars, graduate and/or undergraduate summer schools, forums by graduate students, organized by the Computational Method and Application Laboratory ( of the Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research.
