NumPDE Summer Retreat, Disentis 2018


Août 2018


Prof. Marcus Grote (University of Basel), Prof. Ralf Hiptmair (ETH Zurich), Prof. Daniel Kressner (EPF Lausanne), Prof. Stefan Sauter (University of Zurich), Prof. Christoph Schwab (ETH Zurich)


Since 2009, we have organized an annual summer retreat on the topic of numerical analysis of partial differential equations. The main goal of this retreat is to promote the research activities of PhD students working on this topic. There are about 15 presentations of 45 minutes given by PhD students, with ample time for discussions and exchange of research ideas. During the last years, we have observed that all participants profited a lot from this retreat, sometimes even initiating joint research projects and publications across different groups. The retreat takes place during the summer vacation period at the monastic school in Disentis, which gives access to reasonably priced accommodation and catering, as well as a class room equipped with a black board and a projector. The program of the retreats from 2009 to 2017 can be found under
