The Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications 2019


The sixteenth conference on the Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications will be held at Brunel University and will run during

17 - 21 June 2019

Further information will follow soon. If you would like to be added to the MAFELAP email list please send an email, giving your name, to with the words add to mafelap list in the subject.

The aim will again be to bring together workers from different disciplines who have a common interest in the analysis or application of finite element and related methods, and to promote wider awareness throughout the community of the latest developments in the field.

We welcome participation relating to all aspects of numerical PDE's including, for example,

FEM/BEM and related applications and analysis
isogeometric analysis
porous Media, sub-surface flow, fracking
multiscale, coupled and multi-Physics problems
meshless methods, hydrocodes
biomedical and bioengineering modelling
reduced basis methods
CFD, structural mechanics and electromagnetism
dynamics and impact, structural integrity
smart/complex materials, metamaterials
free surface flows, waves and acoustics
localisation and regularisation

Important Dates


To propose a mini-symposia for MAFELAP 2019 please send an email to with your name, those of any intended co-organizers, and a tentative title.

There is no formal review process - we will follow the practice of previous years and encourage the running of any mini-symposia related to the general MAFELAP themes and areas of interest.

Getting Here

Full details of how to get to Brunel University London are available here.

We recommend that delegates travelling from overseas if possible aim to arrive at London Heathrow airport (6 miles from Brunel). Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and City although all called London airports are, in fact, considerable distances from Brunel University London. Coaches run from these airports to Heathrow where you can take the bus to Brunel. Trains also run from these airports to Central London where you then need to take the London Underground to reach Brunel. For all these journeys you would need to add between 2 and 3 hours travelling time to reach Brunel and there would, of course, be additional costs.
