Dune User Meeting 2023

Dune User Meeting 2023 in Dresden


We invite all Dune users to participate in the 7th Dune User meeting, to be held at the Technische Universität Dresden from 2023/09/18 to 2023/09/19.

This meeting offers a chance to showcase how you’re using Dune, foster collaborations between the users and provide input to the future development of Dune. The meeting also welcomes contributions from other frameworks such as DuMuX, AMDiS and OPM that are using Dune.

We keep the format rather informal. Participants are encouraged to give a presentation. In addition, we will reserve plenty of time for general discussions on Dune.

Directly after the user meeting a meeting of the Dune developers will be held in the same location. We encourage all interested participants of the user meeting to participate in the developer meeting as well.


The online registration is already over. If you still want to join, please send a mail to the organizing committee. There will be no registration fee. Coffee and snacks are provided. Lunch is available in the nearby local mensa of the university.

Invited Speakers

  • Christophe Geuzaine (University of Liège, Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Belgium; Developer of Gmsh)
  • Luca Heltai (SISSA - International School for Advanced Studies, mathLab Laboratory, Trieste; Developer of deal.ii)



Z21 Rotunde und Bürogebäude, Zellescher Weg 25, 01217 Dresden
