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.
|Date||September 6-8, 2021 (Mon-Wed)
|Location||In view of encouraging recent developments in diminishing COVID-19 incidence, we will hold the 2021 Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium in-person on the TU Chemnitz campus in the new and beautifully renovated University Library Building located close to the downtown area and the railway station. However, we will allow online participation. There will be no parallel sessions this year, therefore the number of contributed presentations will be limited.|
|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
Paola Antonietti (Politecnico di Milano) |
Dietmar Gallistl (Uni Jena)
Erik Burman (UCL)
Time slots are 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion and longer for invited talks.|
Talks can be given in-person or online.
|Registration and Accomodation||
The deadline for the
is 13th August 2021.
