The objective of the meeting is to gather active researchers and young scholars in India working in the area of finite element methods, so as to exchange ideas and expose them to various state-of the art numerical techniques based on finite elements. The central theme of the meet will be on the fundamental as well as advanced aspects of design, analysis and implementation of finite element methods to solve complex problems. The meeting will aim to bring together researchers from mathematics and engineering departments so as to foster exchange of ideas and collaboration. This year's meeting is the first in a series of programs we plan to organize annually in the area of Computational PDE.
