Firedrake ‘21

We are very happy to announce that the fifth Firedrake user and developer workshop will be held online between 15-17 September 2021.

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 interact directly with developers and other users.
