Firedrake annual conference 2019

Firedrake ’19, the latest iteration of the Firedrake annual conference was hosted in the Computer Science department at the University of Durham on 26th and 27th September, organised by former PRISM research associate Lawrence Mitchell who is now a Lecturer there. As is now traditional, we held the Firedrake tutorial on the morning of the 26th, which is delivered through Jupyter notebooks. The workshop then continued with 20 talks by Firedrake developers and users, covering geophysical, medical and engineering applications, and with presentations on algorithms ranging from time parallel, hybridisation, goal oriented mesh adaptation, and patch preconditioners for multigrid.
