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 reserved for a special colloquium in honor of the 60th birthday of Professor Alexander Mielke, which will take place in lecture hall 1.101, Universitätsgebäude am Hegelplatz, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Dorotheestr. 24, 10117 Berlin).
More details are coming soon.
If you are interested in participating in the workshop (without contribution), please contact the organizing panel until September 14, 2018. For the workshop dinner, coffee breaks, and booklet, we are obliged to charge a conference fee of 100 Euro.
Participation not longer possible. We reached the maximum capacity of the main conference room. We can no longer accept new participants.
