International conference on nonlinear partial differential equations
A celebration of Professor Norman Dancer's 70th birthday
Date: 21 – 25 November 2016
Venue: University of New England, Armidale, Australia
Taking advantage of Professor Norman Dancer’s 70th birthday, this conference will bring together leading international researchers on nonlinear partial differential equations, as well as Australian researchers, in particular junior researchers, to report and discuss recent developments, exchange ideas and foster/strengthen collaborations. The conference will focus on new developments in several themes of nonlinear partial differential equations and their applications, especially those on which Prof Dancer has made significant contributions. They include nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations, the calculus of variations, and applications in physics, biology and geometry.
Timetable and talks are available from the program page. You can download the conference booklet. On Sunday 20 November there is a reception and registration from 18:30–20:30. It is in the Tea room of the Mathematics Building (C26) and includes an informal dinner.
