Firedrake ‘18

We are very happy to announce that the second Firedrake user and developer workshop will be held on 7 and 8 June 2018.

The workshop will provide the opportunity for Firedrake users and developers to engage with each other to communicate the ways that Firedrake can be used in simulation science, the latest developments in the project, and the future developments anticipated. The event will provide Firedrake users with the opportunity to spend face to face time with developers and other users.


The workshop will start with a half day Firedrake tutorial for interested new users and the main science programme will start at lunchtime on 7 June.
