Minimum Residual & Least-Squares Finite Element Methods

June 24 - 27, Bilbao, Spain 

This conference aims to bring together leading international researchers in the area of residual minimization methods, including the Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin method and Least-Squares Finite Elements. This is the sixth edition of this bi-annual event and it will take place at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) in Bilbao, Spain on June 24 - 27, 2024

The first conference of this series took place in Austin (USA) in 2013, followed by the second edition in Delft (Netherlands) in 2015, the third one in Portland (USA)  in 2017, the fourth one in Berlin (Germany)  in 2019, and the fifth one in Santiago (Chile) in 2022.
