We consider the Dirichlet problem for intrinsic and extrinsic k-polyharmonic maps from a bounded, smooth domain Ω ⊆ ℝ2k to a compact, smooth Riemannian manifold N ⊆ ℝl without boundary. For any smooth boundary data, we show that any k-polyharmonic map uW k,2(Ω, N) is smooth near the boundary ∂Ω.

Keywords.: Polyharmonic maps; boundary regularity
