The workshop ALEX2018 will be held at WIAS and HU Berlin, Germany from September 24-28, 2018. It addresses new aspects for evolutionary PDEs with a wide range of applications in physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering. The focus will be put on four main topics:
  • Variational methods for continuum mechanics,
  • Gradient and Hamiltonian structures,
  • Dynamical systems,
  • Multiscale problems.
Applications may include modeling of smart materials, interrelation between stochastics and PDEs, multi-particle systems, transition from discrete to continuum, quantum mechanics, and reaction-diffusion systems.

The workshop starts Monday, September 24, at 9 am and ends Friday, September 28, at about 1 pm. There will be 12 keynote lectures (45 min) and about 30 invited presentations (30 min). The talks scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will take place in the Erhard-Schmidt lecture hall of the Weierstrass Institute. On Wednesday, September 26, we are planning a social event in the morning and a workshop dinner in the evening. The afternoon of the 26th is reseverd for a special colloquium in honor of the 60th birthday of Professor Alexander Mielke, which will take place in the Luisensaal of the Humboldt University of Berlin.
More details are coming soon.
