Over the last two decades, a large variety of non-standard discretization schemes, aiming at improving the interoperability between CAD designs and finite element discretizations, have emerged in the field of the numerical approximation of partial differential equations. Amongst them, some are based on the isogeometric concept and/or fictitious domain approaches, that facilitate the geometry modeling within analysis and provide higher robustness and accuracy with respect to the standard finite elements computations. If the fundamentals and interests have been proven successful in the academic community, the true application of such advanced techniques to real world problems is currently undergoing important effort.
In this context, the proposed mini-symposium invites all contributions from the field of isogeometric and non-standard discretization methods that successfully address the numerical solution of PDEs in computational domains described by means of CAD techniques.
Typical topics are expected to be, but not restricted to: spline-based discretizations, isogeometric analysis and integration of CAD and CAE, collocation methods, cut finite elements, fictitious domain approaches, as well as design optimization.
