The aim of this workshop is to bring together applied mathematicians
from Australia and abroad who are using geometric techniques in the
analysis of partial differential equations. The idea is to foster
collaborative efforts between researchers using geometry in a host
of applied mathematical problems, including biological, chemical and
physical applications, with the aim of enriching all.
