Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium 2022     Poster → Poster

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 2017, the FE Symposium venue and local organisation will alternate between its home in Chemnitz and the institution of one of the members of its Scientific Committee.

In 2022 the symposium is hosted by the Universität der Bundeswehr München (Institut für Mathematik und Computergestützte Simulation, Förderverein Konstruktiver Ingenieurbau e.V.).

Note: This event can be perfectly combined with the participation in the Summer School Uncertainty, Adaptivity, and Machine Learning in Augsburg from September 12 to 14, 2022.

Date September 15-17, 2022 (Thu-Sat)
Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft
This year the Chemnitz Finite Element Symposium is on tour in Herrsching am Ammersee close to Munich.
Time schedule
  • Thursday: opening at 9:00, presentations
  • Friday: presentations, excursion, conference dinner
  • Saturday: presentations, closing at 13:00
Scientific topics The symposium is devoted to all aspects of finite elements and other computer-based 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

  • Discretization of problems with low-regularity solution
  • Discretization of optimal control problems
  • Neural networks with applications to PDEs
Invited speakers Gitta Kutyniok (LMU Munich)
Mariano Mateos (Universidad de Oviedo)
Serge Nicaise (Université Valenciennes)
Joachim Schöberl (TU Wien)
Max Winkler (TU Chemnitz)
Contributions Talks: 20 minutes (plus 5 minutes for discussion) and 45+5 for invited talks.
Posters: Posters in A1 format can be presented during the poster sessions.
