The Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium dates back to 1978, a time when the finite element method,
already in use in the engineering community, was just beginning to be seriously analysed by a small
number of mathematicians. Since then the FE Symposium, organised throughout the years by the numerical
analysis group at the TUC and its descendants, has evolved into an annual workshop on the mathematical
analysis of the finite element method and its applications including engineering simulations,
control theory and inverse problems. Besides distinguished invited speakers on topical subjects
selected each year, the FE Symposium specifically welcomes young researchers and doctoral students
for whom it provides a friendly atmosphere and opportunities to interact with more established colleagues.
Beginning with 2018, the FE Symposium venue and local organisation will alternate annually between its
home in Chemnitz and the institution of one of the members of its Scientific Committee.
In 2019 the symposium is hosted by the University of Duisburg-Essen.
|Date||September 9-11, 2019 (Mon-Wed)
(Time schedule will be approximately from Monday 9:00 a.m. to Wednesday 1:30 p.m.)
This year the Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium is
on tour in Mülheim an der Ruhr.
Conference venue: Katholische Akademie Die Wolfsburg,
Limited number of hotel rooms in Wolfsburg available. Acceptance in order of registration entry. Booking subject to confirmation.
|Scientific topics||The symposium is devoted to all aspects of finite elements and
related methods for solving partial differential equations.
The topics include but are not limited to: scientific computing, mechanics/applications,
inverse problems and optimization with PDEs, uncertainty quantification.
