Upcoming Network activities:

Workshop: Mathematical Aspects of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics

RWTH Aachen University, Germany, March 5-7, 2018 (Mon-Wed)

The objective of the workshop will be to bring together experts from
mathematics and the natural sciences, to discuss recent developments in
non-equilibrium thermodynamics and related topics. The aim is to open up
a dialogue and explore possible connections, bringing together the
respective points of view of the different disciplines.

The workshop will consist of short presentations of 30-40 minutes,
followed by ample time for discussions. The presentations are not
intended to address the most recent results, but instead will provide a
condensed summary (the ‘big picture’) of the main ideas and techniques,
possibly illustrated by a representative example. Further details can be
explored in the discussions. We hope that such a format will offer an
overview over recent trends and new developments, and a possibility to
compare different approaches and techniques.

NUMHYP17: Numerical methods for hyperbolic problems

May 28th-June 2nd, 2017, Monte Verità

NumHyp17 is the fifth in a series of biannual conferences entitled that began with a meeting in Castro Urdiales, Spain in 2009. Further editions of this conference were held at Roscoff, France in 2011, Aachen, Germany in 2013 and in Cortona, Italy in 2015. NumHyp17 will be a key activity of the European innovative training network entitled ModCompShock ( Modeling and computation of shocks and interfaces).

XVI International Conference on Hyperbolic Problems
Theory, Numerics, Applications

Aachen (Germany), August 1-5, 2016


The objective of the conference is to bring together scientists with interests in the theoretical, applied, and computational aspects of hyperbolic partial differential equations (systems of hyperbolic conservation laws, wave equations, etc.) and of related mathematical models (PDEs of mixed type, kinetic equations, nonlocal or/and discrete models, etc.) that appear in the area of applied sciences.

The conference was first held 1986 in St. Etienne (France) and has been organized since then biennially at different locations all over the world: 2014 Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), 2012 Padua (Italy), 2010 Beijing (China), 2008 College Park (U.S.A.), 2006 Lyon (France), etc.

The conference consists of plenary and invited lectures (with pairs of invited lectures being held in parallel), and of sessions of contributed talks covering various aspects of the field. As has been done in the past, a special effort will be made to enable young scientists to attend the conference and to meet and interact with the more senior researchers.

Please contact us using the contact form or by email to info@hyp2016.de if you have any questions.
