This conference is dedicated to Professor Ivo Babuska on the occasion of his 80th birthday.
The internationally recognized MAFELAP conferences have been run by BICOM at Brunel University at three year intervals since 1972. In these conferences exposure is given to research on the theory and practical application of finite element methods.
The aim will again be to bring together workers from different disciplines whose common interest is finite element methods, and to promote wider awareness throughout the finite element community of the latest developments in the field. Further details will be posted here as they become available. Registration is now
If you have not yet registered then please do so now. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please note that, in common with most conferences, each room will be equipped with the following equipment:

Also, we are not able to provide printing facilites for generating hard copies of presentations (e.g. from power point, PDF, etc.).
The latest version of the programme for MAFELAP is here. Please note that this is not definitive - although we only expect to make minor changes from this date forward.
General information on fees is available here or as a printable Word document.
Please register by completing and returning to us this registration form in: Word, PDF or PostScript.
There are three deadlines:
Although many have already been proposed,
we are still encouraging colleagues to organise mini-symposia at MAFELAP.
Briefly, the parameters for a mini-symposium are that we shall allocate a
time-slot to the organisers, during which they can have four speakers, each
giving a presentation (probably 30 minutes: 25 minutes talk plus 5 minutes
for questions). If organisers want more than four talks, then we could give
them two time slots. If you are interested in running a mini-symposium,
please submit a title to us as soon as possible, with a tentative list of speakers.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Anyone who wishes to present a lecture in a parallel session or mini-symposium is asked to prepare an abstract as soon as possible. Submission details will appear here soon. The conference organisers will make every effort to associate talks with suitable mini-symposia.
So that a book of abstracts can be produced we request that all authors adhere to the guidelines found here. If your document does not conform to these guidelines then it is unlikely that we will have time to convert it, and therefore unlikely that it will be circulated to delegates.
A list of all currently proposed mini-symposia can be found here.
MAFELAP 2006 will consist of:
