2019 SIAM Conference on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations

The 2019 SIAM Conference on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations will be held in La Quinta, California, USA from December 11-14, 2019.

The primary goal of this conference is to bring together scientists and mathematicians working in partial differential equations and related fields. Contemporary challenges raised by recent advances in engineering, industry, and bio-technology, will be confronted with state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools in PDE. Some of the topics covered in this meeting can be found in the list of themes below. Advanced graduate students and young researchers are encouraged to participate. Limited funding is available for graduate students and recent PhDs.

The deadline for application for SIAM Student Travel Awards and for SIAM Early Career Travel Awards is May 27, 2019.

The deadline for the submission of contributed lecture, poster, and minisymposium presentation abstracts is June 10, 2019.

Further information on these and other aspects of conference participation is available from the SIAM Conference website.

Other Upcoming Conferences of Interest

  • Recents Trends in Stochastic Analysis and SPDEs.
    Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa, Italy. July 18-20, 2019.
    Deadline for registration is June 15, 2019. A poster session is also planned and submissions are welcome: if you are interested, please send a title and an abstract to spdespisa@gmail.com.

  • Scale Space and Variational Methods in Computer Vision (SSVM 2019).
    Hofgeismar, Germany. June 30 - July 4, 2019.
    SSVM is a biannual meeting in the area of Computer Vision and Image Analysis. SSVM focuses especially on multiscale analysis of image content, partial differential equations, geometric and level-set methods, variational methods, and optimization.

  • Workshop on New Trends in Variational Models: From Superconductors to Liquid Crystals.
    Fields Institute, Toronto, Canada. June 17-21, 2019.
    This workshop will be held in recognition of Peter Sternberg's contributions to the calculus of variations on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The main focus of the workshop will be to discuss new trends and techniques in the variational analysis of a wide range of mathematical problems. These problems will include:
    • Modeling of phase transitions and structural defects in superconducting materials, micromagnets, and liquid crystals.
    • Models of self-assembly and collective behavior of many-particle interactions, such as biological swarms, granular media.
    • Geometric variational problems related to shape optimization with connections to materials science.
    • Nonlinear PDEs and gradient flows such as curvature evolutions and interface dynamics.
    Singular perturbation theory and Gamma-convergence techniques form a common thread connecting these topics. The workshop will also include a poster session highlighting the work of graduate students and postdocs.

  • New trends and challenges in the mathematics of optimal design.
    Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK. June 10-14, 2019.
    The optimal design of structures and materials has recently undergone a burst of activity due to simultaneous progress in methods for the manufacture of new materials and their design, such as the development of additive manufacturing and of mathematical methods for topology optimization.The workshop will present the most recent results and challenges in this area and provide an exchange forum for mathematicians, scientists and engineers interested in various applications, having in common the need for optimizing designs, in particular their material properties, shapes and topologies. This workshop is part of the “Mathematical design of new materials” programme, which runs from January-June 2019.

  • Oberwolfach Seminar: Beyond Numerical Homogenization.
    Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. Oberwolfach, Germany. June 9-15, 2019.
    The program consists of courses on numerical homogenization and its ramifications (multiresolution analysis, fast multilevel solvers, kernel methods, computational statistics, uncertainty quantification, eigenvalue problems, Gaussian process regression and statistical numerical approximation). It will also include daily sessions providing opportunities for research on open problems and unexplored areas. Attendance is free, but places are limited and application is required.

  • Central State Mathematics Undergraduate Research (CeSMUR) 2019
    Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, USA. April 12-13, 2019.
    Registrations and abstracts are welcome for this, the fifth edition of the conference. The conference has grant support from the NSF for travel and housing.
