Firedrake ‘19

We are very happy to announce that the third Firedrake user and developer workshop will be held on 26 and 27 September 2019 at Durham University.

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 26 September. See the programme for detailed timings.
