16th European Finite Element Fair 2018

June 8 - 9, 2018, Mathematikon, Heidelberg

The 16th European Finite Element Fair will be held at Heidelberg University. It will be hosted in the new Mathematikon building on the science campus Im Neuenheimer Feld.

The conference will begin June 8th at 14:00 (on-site registration opening at 12:30) and end June 9th in the afternoon.


In order to help with preparations, we would like to ask participants to register in advance by email to sekretariat.kanschat@iwr.uni-heidelberg.de with subject EFEF 2018 Registration. Please indicate in your email whether you plan to

Local Organizers

The EFEF Meetings

The European Finite Element Fair (EFEF) is 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. Authors are encouraged to present one new idea rather than review a full research project. In this spirit, the communication of recent and new results, even not yet published, is very welcome. A few, but strict, rules apply to EFEF in order to distinguish it from existing workshops and minisymposia in the field.
