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 2020 the Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium will be integrated into the Annual Meeting of the German Mathematical Society (DMV-Jahrestagung), where it is situated within the Section "Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing".
September 14-17, 2020 (Mon-Thu)
Update: The DMV Annual Meeting has been moved online, and the Chemnitz FE Symposium will follow along. The CFES sessions will take place online using the Zoom videoconferencing platform within a single recurring Zoom session. To join, click on Sections/Minisymposia on the Virtual Venue page and then select "Sec10: Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing - FEM Symposium". The access data for the Virtual Venue page should have been mailed to you by the DMV local organizers.
|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.
This year we particularly encourage talks on
Annalisa Buffa (EPF Lausanne, Switzerland) |
Natalja Kopteva (University of Limerick, Ireland)
Gunar Matthies (TU Dresden, Germany)
Talks: time slots are 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. |
As this year's symposium is part of the DMV meeting there will be a limited number of slots for talks.
|Registration and Accomodation||
Participants of the Finite Element Symposium are requested to register for the
DMV Annual Meeting via the online registration procedure
