Firedrake ‘24

The eighth Firedrake user and developer workshop will be held at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford from 16-18 September 2024.

The workshop will be an opportunity for Firedrake users and developers to discuss the latest developments in the project, anticipated future developments, and how Firedrake can be used in the numerical solution of partial differential equations. The event will provide Firedrake users with the opportunity to interact directly with developers and with other users.

The conference will begin around lunchtime on 16 September and end on the evening of 18 September.

Conference venue

The conference will take place in the Andrew Wiles Building. Its main entrance is located on Woodstock Road (see here for the precise location). Take some care in navigation, as Google Maps sometimes directs people to the old mathematics building on St. Giles.


We have arranged a number of single en-suite rooms at Oriel college, Oxford, for the nights of Monday 16 September and Tuesday 17 September. The fee includes breakfast on the following days. Oriel College, founded in 1326, is one of the constituent colleges of the university of Oxford. The accommodation is approximately fifteen minutes walk from the Andrew Wiles Building.

Conference dinner

Registration includes a drinks reception and three-course dinner at Corpus Christi college, Oxford, founded in 1517. The dinner will take place on the evening of 17 September. Corpus Christi college is right next to Oriel, about fifteen minutes walk from the Andrew Wiles building.

It is possible during registration to purchase additional tickets for the dinner, to bring non-registered companions.
