in association with the Newton Institute programme

Computational Challenges in Partial Differential Equations (20 January - 4 July 2003)

Programme Long Stay Participants Short Stay Participants


Mark Ainsworth (University of Strathclyde), Charles M. Elliott (University of Sussex), Endre Süli (Oxford University)

Advisory Committee:

John W. Barrett (Imperial College, London), Franco Brezzi (University of Pavia, Italy), Ricardo Nochetto (University of Maryland, USA), Rolf Rannacher (University of Heidelberg, Germany), Nigel Weatherill (University of Wales at Swansea), John R. Whiteman (Brunel University, London)

Theme of Conference:

The conference aims to identify major application areas in science and engineering where developments in computational PDEs are needed and will have a significant impact. The format of the meeting is designed to promote extensive and wide-ranging discussion on the role of computational partial differential equations in science and engineering, and includes a one-day session devoted to the EPSRC managed programme on Computational Engineering Mathematics.

Confirmed Speakers include:

Tony Chan (UCLA)
Weinan E (Princeton)
Björn Engquist (Princeton)
Roland Glowinski (Houston)
Tom McLeish (Leeds)
Olivier Pironneau (Paris)
Alfio Quarteroni (Lausanne/Milan)
Rolf Rannacher (Heidelberg)
Adrian Sutton (Oxford)
Ellad B Tadmor (Technion, Israel)

The workshop will take place at the Newton Institute.

Accommodation will be taken care of by the Newton Institute. On receipt of your workshop formal acceptance letter (which will be sent out in late September) you are strongly advised to confirm your accommodation requirements immediately to secure your accommodation. Please note: The Institute has very limited accommodation available during the workshop period. Once all Institute accommodation has been allocated, you may need to arrange your own.

Supported participants:
Support has been obtained from EPSRC for around twenty UK academics, particularly engineers and mathematicians involved in the EPSRC Computational Engineering Mathematics Programme. Eligible participants are encouraged to approach the organisers at an early stage. There are a number of other opportunities for obtaining support to participate in the meeting. In particular, support for younger researchers is available under the Newton Institute Junior Membership Scheme.

Application Form:
Please complete and return the application form to Tracey Andrew.

Closing Date for the receipt of applications is 13 September 2002
