Summer School on Advances in Finite Element Methods

The Summer School on Advances in Finite Element Methods will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 14-18 Jan 2013.
The website contains details such as registration, accommodation, lecturers and the schedule. 

The objective of this summer school is first, to provide the necessary background in the mathematics of finite elements, and second, to build on this background by addressing the topics of adaptivity and discontinuous Galerkin methods.

The lectures will be accompanied by computing laboratory sessions.

The summer school is aimed at an audience of graduates in the engineering or mathematical sciences. It will be suitable for PhD students and for researchers seeking a foundation in theoretical aspects of the finite element method. 

The course will be presented by:
Prof. Carsten Carstensen, Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany 
Prof. Alexandre Ern, CERMICS, ENPC, France 
Prof. Rolf Rannacher, University of Heidelberg, Germany 
Prof. Daya Reddy, University of Cape Town, South Africa
