G-Adopt Firedrake workshop
We are delighted to announce that the first G-ADOPT workshop on automating finite element methods for geodynamics via firedrake was held on April 28th – 29th, 2022, at the Australian National University in Canberra. This workshop provided an opportunity for the G-Adopt development team to showcase progress on the forward modelling component of this platform, using the Firedrake framework. The overarching goal of the workshop was to provide a background to the platform and training for potential users, thus facilitating community growth within Australia. Although our focus was on geodynamical application, we were eager to identify other research areas for future applicability. As such, there was an opportunity for interested practitioners to engage with developers and other participants, to ascertain whether their problems are tractable within Firedrake.
