The First European Finite Element Fair
8-9 May 2003
Mark Ainsworth (University of Strathclyde), Carsten Carstensen (Vienna University of Technology), Charles M. Elliott (University of Sussex), Christoph Schwab (ETH Zürich), and Endre Süli (University of Oxford)
Theme of the Meeting:
The European Finite Element Fair (EFEF) will become
an annual series of completely informal small
workshops throughout Europe with equal initial conditions for each speaker. EFEF
provides a platform for high-level discussions on current research on finite element approximation,
in the broadest sense, of partial differential equations. A few, but strict, rules will apply to
EFEF 2003 in
distinguish it from existing workshops and minisymposia in the field.
(1) Provided that he or she is present throughout the meeting (ie from the morning of Thursday 8th May until the afternoon of Friday 9th May), each participant is invited to talk.
(2) To register for a presentation, please complete the online application form available here . Slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. On this occasion, the number of participants will be limited to about 50. The talks will start around 11am on Thursday and continue through Friday noon until about 5pm.
(3) Based on the number of speakers the time available will be divided into slots for the talks. The order of the speakers will be determined through random choice, by drawing names out of a hat. Speakers cannot request a specific time to talk.
(4) Each speaker should introduce himself or herself, the title and topic, and is expected to leave sufficient time, within the allocated time-slot, for discussion. Speakers have to prepare a talk that can be trimmed to various lengths (15 minutes is typical).
Sandwich-lunches will be arranged by the Isaac Newton Institute for a charge. If you wish to make use of this possibility, please inform Tracey Andrew at the Institute by 30 April 2003; telephone: (01223) 335984; fax: (01223) 330508.
There are limited funds available to assist UK research students to attend: please apply by 30 April 2003 to Tracey Andrew.
Unfortunately the Newton Institute is unable to offer any assistance with accommodation for this period. A list of local Guest Houses is available here.
