PDESoft 2024

PDE software frameworks conference, 1-3 July 2024, Cambridge, UK


The numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) is important across a wide range of fields. Simulation codes underpin this need and are employed in many areas of science and engineering, from forecasting the weather, to predicting the flow field around aircraft, through to predictive simulations for biomedical applications, amongst many other examples.

PDESoft 2024 is an opportunity for users and developers of software tools for solving PDEs and allied areas to come together to present and discuss current and future directions of research.

Areas of focus include:

PDESoft 2024 will be held at the Møller Institute, Churchill College, Cambridge.

PDESoft 2024 follows in the successful footsteps of PDESoft 2012 in Münster, PDESoft 2014 in Heidelberg, PDESoft 2016 in Warwick and PDESoft 2018 in Bergen.



The full schedule for PDESoft 2024 can be found on the programme page.

Talks and posters

Invited speakers

We are pleased to announce that Joachim Schöberl (TU Wien) will be speaking about Netgen/NGSolve, and April Novak (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) will be speaking about MOOSE and ECP. Tzanio Kolev (LLNL) will talk about MFEM and CEED.

Submitting a presentation

To present a poster at PDESoft 2024, use the form on the Talk/poster submission page. Submissions for talks are now closed. PDESoft 2024 will emphasise an open and inclusive atmosphere, and we encourage proposals from a diverse range of scientific areas and backgrounds.


A topical collection for PDESoft is planned to be included in the new journal Computational Science and Engineering, which has a focus on reproducibility with code review. We hope that many participants in the PDESoft conference will be able to contribute.



The registration deadline has been extended to 15 June.

Registration to attend PDESoft 2024 is open, and can be completed via the University of Cambridge shop. Registrations will close on 15 June 2024. Registration includes:
