The 17th European Finite Element Fair (EFEF) will be held at the (new campus of the) University of Cyprus in Nicosia. The conference will begin Friday, May 17th at 14:00 (on-site registration opening at 12:30) and end Saturday, May 18th in the afternoon.
The EFEF is an annual series of completely informal small workshops throughout Europe with equal initial conditions for each speaker. EFEF provides a platform for high-level discussions on current research on finite element approximation, in the broadest sense, of partial differential equations. Authors are encouraged to present one new idea rather than review a full research project. In this spirit, the communication of recent and new results, even not yet published, is very welcome. A few, but strict, rules apply to EFEF in order to distinguish it from existing workshops and minisymposia in the field.
Format of the Meeting
- Speakers at EFEF are volunteers from the
audience. Provided that they are present throughout the
meeting, all participants are invited to talk. Potential
participants are strongly encouraged to attend at least one
meeting before volunteering to speak.
- Based on the number of speakers the time available will be
divided into slots for the talks. The order of the speakers
will be determined through random choice, by drawing names out
of a hat. Speakers cannot request a specific time to
- Bring your presentation as a pdf-file
on a USB-stick. That will make life/technical support much
more relaxed and easier during the conference.
- Each speaker should introduce himself or herself, the
title and topic, and is expected to leave sufficient time,
within the allocated time-slot, for discussion. Speakers have
to prepare a talk that can be trimmed to various lengths (from
seconds to 20 minutes). For a smooth meeting, the time table
will be strictly enforced.
- Since EFEF 2005, a book has been available (in
the Oberwolfach tradition) to record new analytical and
numerical results presented during EFEF. Results can be
hand-written or typeset and glued into the book.
Registration and participation is free. In order to help with preparations, we would like to ask participants to register in advance by sending an email to email@example.com, with subject EFEF 2019 Registration. Please indicate in your email whether you plan to give a presentation, and/or participate in the conference dinner.

There are several airlines that fly to Larnaca (LCA) or Paphos (PFS) airports in Cyprus. Each participant should make arrangements to arrive (via air) to either Larnaca or Paphos; taxis to Nicosia should be available once you exit the airport. A normal (4 seat) taxi from Larnaca to Nicosia should cost around 50 Euros and from Paphos to Nicosia should cost around 100 Euros. For a cheaper choice, there is an airport shuttle (Kapnos Airport Shuttle) that brings you from the airport(s) to (a not so central spot in) Nicosia.
A number of hotels in Nicosia have an agreement with UCY and offer special prices. Please contact the
hotel of your choice to make your reservation and mention 'University of Cyprus' in order to get
the special price. A list of hotels is given here:

Getting to the campus
If you opt to stay near the center of the city, you may reach the new campus of UCY in a number of ways:
- Taxi (cost around 12 Euros)
- Public bus (cost around 1.5 Euros). The central bus station is located right outside the old city walls and
very near the hotels. Bus numbers 259 and 150 bring you to the campus (the trip could last 45 minutes).
