2017 Finite Element Rodeo March 3rd—March 4th, 2017

The Finite Element Rodeo is an annual, informal conference on finite element methods that rotates between several universities in Texas and Louisiana. In the beginning, we 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 then divided by the number of speakers. Usually, the time allotted per talk is 10-15 minutes. Talks by graduate students and postdocs are particularly encouraged. 

The 2017 edition of the Finite Element Rodeo will be held at the University of Houston on Friday and Saturday,  March 3—4, 2017, beginning early afternoon on Friday and ending mid-afternoon on Saturday.

Schedule: A schedule for the conference is at this link.

Workshop Venue: The workshop will be held in room 232 of the PGH building. Please see here for Visitor Information.

Accommodation: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hilton University of Houston. The nightly rate of $139 plus tax is available by booking through this link. Please book by February 2, 2017 to receive the negotiated room rate.

Meals: A conference dinner is planned for Friday evening at the Hilton University of Houston. Saturday lunch will be provided near the conference venue.

Registration: The registration cost is $25 for participants attending the Friday evening dinner and free for attendees not going to the Friday dinner. The cost for spouses and other guests of participants who wish to attend the dinner is $50 plus tax.  We request that everybody who plans to attend the Rodeo register by clicking here to register.
