The FEniCS 2022 conference is an opportunity for all those interested in the FEniCS Project and related projects to exchange ideas, communicate their results and network with the automated scientific computing community. We welcome developers, existing and potential users of the FEniCS ecosystem as well as mathematicians, computer scientists and application domain specialists interested in numerical methods, their implementation and applications.

The FEniCS 2022 conference will emphasize an open and inclusive atmosphere, contributed talks from a diverse range of scientific areas, and dedicated time for discussions and coding.

All participants must register for the conference. Participants may register here. Registration and payment opened on 3 June 2022. The early bird conference registration fee is $250 (US), and includes payment for food during the conference. The deadline for early bird registration is 22 July 2022 after which the conference fee is $300 (US).

Abstract submission

Abstracts may be submitted here. The deadline for proposing talks is Friday, June 17, 2022. Conference delegates will be notified if their talk has been accepted. The length of talks will depend on registration numbers, but has been around 15 minutes (plus time for questions) in previous in-person meetings. Talking is not a prerequisite for attending: you can register for the conference and attend without talking.

Travel awards

NumFOCUS have kindly offered to support travel awards for attendees who would otherwise struggle to come to the conference for financial reasons, e.g. junior students and researchers or those working in countries with a less developed research infrastructure. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract to the conference.

To apply for a travel award, send a letter of motivation, an estimation of travel costs, CV and if applicable, the conference abstract to David Kamensky. Applications will be assessed by the local organizing committee. The cut-off date for applications is 8 July 2022.

Conference venue

The conference will be held at UC San Diego, in the 2nd-floor conference center of the Structural and Materials Engineering (SME) building.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will be from 5–7pm Tuesday 23 August 2022 on the Structural and Materials Engineering patio. For more details refer to the conference program.

Getting to San Diego

The main option for traveling to San Diego is to fly to the San Diego International Airport (SAN). You can use the city’s trolley system (Blue Line) to get to the UC San Diego campus area.


Participants will need to book their own accommodation. Note that the SME building is across the street from the UC San Diego Central Campus station of the new Mid-Coast Trolley Blue Line Extension. Attendees may consider lodging options near other trolley stations for convenient access. We politely advise you book accommodation at least a few weeks in advance of the conference date.

Code of conduct

We expect all attendees of FEniCS 2022 to follow the FEniCS Project code of conduct. Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the conference organizers or the FEniCS Steering Council.
