THE THIRD EUROPEAN FINITE ELEMENT FAIR
The Third European Finite Element Fair
Pavia, 3-4 June 2005
European Organising Committee:
Format of the Meeting:
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 (see
The Book, item 4 below). A few, but strict, rules apply to
EFEF in order to distinguish it from existing workshops and minisymposia in the field.
Speakers at EFEF are volunteers from the audience.
Provided that he or she is present throughout the meeting, each
participant is invited to talk. If you plan to attend, we strongly
encourage you to fill out the registration form.
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.
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
(from seconds to 30 minutes). For
a smooth meeting, the time table will be strictly enforced.
The Book. Starting from EFEF 2005, a book will be available (in
the Oberwolfach tradition) to record new analytical and numerical
results presented during EFEF. Results can be hand-written or
typeset and glued into the book.
Friday 1:30pm till Saturday 5pm.
In case you would like to use a beamer, make sure that you will
bring an additional copy of your talk as ps- or pdf-file
on CD or USB-stick. That will make life/technical support much
more relaxed and easier during the conference.
