Finite Element Rodeo 2023

March 24 - 25

Department of Mathematics
Texas A&M University

The finite element rodeo conferences are a series of annual meetings between several universities in Texas and Louisiana. The annual conference brings together researchers and students interested in the implementation and theory of the general class of finite element methods for various applications.

The program consists of randomly ordered talks volunteered by conference participants. We invite researchers interested in FEM to volunteer to give a short talk, or to just attend the meeting. At the beginning of the rodeo, we will ask for all those willing to speak to come forward. We will use this information to determine the length of the talks and arrange a schedule. The total available time is divided by the number of speakers, but usually the time allotted per talk is 10-15 minutes. Talks by graduate students and postdocs are particularly encouraged.

The 2023 edition of the Finite Element Rodeo will be held at Texas A&M University.


Registration is now open (link, simply check out as guest). The registration fee for participants is $5.00. In case you attend the conference dinner on Friday evening we are asking for a contribution of $10.00 towards the total cost, payable during registration.
We ask everyone to register by Wednesday, March 22.
