Adaptive algorithms and the associated software are ubiquitous in numerical solution of partial differential equations. In many application areas, adaptive solution procedures offer the most efficient way to achieve the required accuracy in numerical simulations through effective use of available computational resources.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss recent advances in mathematical foundations, design and implementation of adaptive algorithms for numerical solution of PDE problems. The workshop will bring together leading experts as well as active early-career researchers and research students working in the field to facilitate the exchange of ideas and initiate new collaborations.

The workshop aims to cover a wide range of topics associated with analysis, design, and implementation of adaptive algorithms, including:

  • a posteriori error estimation, error control, and stopping criteria
  • convergence analysis of adaptive algorithms
  • adaptive finite element methods
  • adaptive methods for uncertainty quantification
  • applications, software development and high-performance computing
