The FEniCS 2023 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 2023 conference will emphasize an open and inclusive atmosphere, contributed talks from a diverse range of scientific areas, and dedicated time for discussions and coding.

Important dates


Conference venue

The conference will be held at:
Hotel Flamingo Resort ****
SS 195, Km 33,800
09010 Santa Margherita di Pula (Cagliari)
Sardegna, Italy.

Registration and accommodation

All participants must register for the conference. Registration to the conference and hotel booking are two separate processes, but we suggest to carry them out at the same time.

Abstract submission

Call for abstracts is now open. Titles and abstracts for talk have to be proposed up to May 14, 2023, but registration (with hotel booking) is strongly recommended by March 31, 2023 since hotel rooms are limited. Conference delegates will be notified if their talk has been accepted. The length of talks will depend on registration numbers, but is expected to be around 15 minutes (plus time for questions). Talking is not a prerequisite for attending: you can register for the conference and attend without talking.

Travel awards

We offered 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 to the travel award were strongly encouraged to submit an abstract to the conference.

Applications are now closed. The cut-off date for applications was April 14, 2023.

Getting there

Getting to Sardinia

The main option for traveling to Sardinia is to fly to the Cagliari-Elmas Airport (CAG). There are regular flights to Rome and Milan, and daily direct flights to many other cities in Europe and UK.

If you have time to see more of the island, you might find it interesting to drive and catch the ferry (Grimalda, Moby, Tirrenia).

Getting to Pula

The conference hotel is located just outside Pula, around 40 minutes drive south of Cagliari. For your convenience we intend to organise a transfer bus from Cagliari airport in the afternoon of Tues 12 June, contact organisers to get a seat.

If you prefer independent travel or are arriving at a different time, other options are

Getting to Cagliari

The conference venue is near Pula, not in Cagliari.

But Cagliari is a pretty city, do visit it if you have time waiting for your flight (or waiting for the transfer bus). There are regular trains between the airport (Elmas Aeroporto, not Cagliari-Elmas) and the city (Cagliari) taking only 5 minutes (do check the timetable).

The central train station is around the corner from Piazza Yenne and the restaurant and shopping streets (Corso Vittorio Emanuele II,, via Manno, via Garibaldi. Climb up to the Bastione and Castello or wander the alleys of Marina.

There is luggage storage near Cagliari train station if you want to leave your luggage for a few hours, in lockers or with a tabacchino.

Code of conduct

We expect all attendees of FEniCS 2023 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.
