The MFEM team held the first annual MFEM Community Workshop on October 20, 2021. MFEM, which stands for Modular Finite Element Methods, is an open source C++ software library that provides high-order mathematical algorithms for large-scale scientific simulations. The project’s discretization methods enable HPC systems to run these simulations more efficiently. More than 150 researchers from dozens of organizations and countries attended the one-day virtual workshop organized by Aaron Fisher, Tzanio Kolev, Will Pazner, and Mark Stowell. According to the registration survey, more than half of the participants were new users. An article about the workshop is available on LLNL’s Computing website, and links to videos of the presenters can be found at the MFEM website.
