Summer School in Analysis of PDEs and Fluid Dynamics

 

Date: 23-26 July 2019

Location: Bayes Centre, Lecture Theatre 5.10
47 Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9BT, UK

Scientific Committee: Beatrice Pelloni (Heriot-Watt University), Jacques Vanneste (University of Edinburgh), Daniel Coutand (Heriot-Watt University), Mark Wilkinson (Heriot-Watt University), Stefania Lisai (Heriot-Watt University and University of Edinburgh)

 

The analysis of PDEs that arise in fluid dynamics, and in particular in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, has attracted the interest of the mathematical and physical communities in the past 30 years, because of the new mathematical tools that can be used to tackle them, but mostly for their applications to Meteorology and Climate Prediction. Edinburgh is a hub for this type of mathematics: following the recent confirmation of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training for Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation at the Maxwell Institute Graduate School (MAC-MIGS), we aim to attract many young researchers from the around the UK, Europe, and even outstanding applications from outside of Europe, and encourage collaboration and discussion between well-experienced academics and early-stage researchers.

 

Main speakers: Gui-Qiang G. Chen (University of Oxford), Mikhail Feldman (University of Wisconsin), Camilla Nobili (Universität Hamburg).

Invited speakers: Michele Coti Zelati (Imperial College London), Oana-Irina Pocovnicu (Heriot-Watt University), Miles Wheeler (Universität Wien), Ewelina Zatorska (UCL).

Special event: there will be a lecture by Mike Cullen (Met Office) on Wednesday 24, open to anyone. More details on this will follow soon.

Registration: due to limited capacity, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. You may register your interest in attending the event by completing the application form and (just for non-Edinburgh based participants) by emailing a CV and a motivation letter to s.lisai AT sms.ed.ac.uk.

The deadline for applications is 10 May 2019. Applicants from the Maxwell Institute will be automatically registered, whereas the other successful applicants will be notified by email after 20 May 2019. For those who apply after the deadline, participation will be allowed subject to capacity limit.

There will be time for short talks by PhD students and early-stage post-docs: don't forget to include a title and a short abstract in the registration form if you would like to give a short talk (20 minutes + 5).

 

Financial support: we might be able to provide financial support to exceptional applicants who are not based in Edinburgh: please indicate whether you might need it in the application form above. There is no registration fee, and we will provide lunches and the conference dinner for free to all the participants. We hope that your home institutions will be able to help you cover the costs of travel and accommodation in Edinburgh. We invite you to look for other sources of funding, either through your home institution or externally (for instance, EWM provides a few travel grants to female mathematicians based in EU, with deadline on the 1st of June).

 

Accommodation: the end of July is a very busy time in Edinburgh, as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will start on the 2nd of August. We suggest to book accommodation well in advance. Rooms can be booked in the Pollock Halls for affordable prices, but they are likely to be fully booked soon.
