Chair for Analysis and Modelling

Workshop on spatial dynamics and related approaches

July 22-24, 2020 at the University of Stuttgart - Workshop organized by the Chair for Analysis and Modelling

Please notice: The workshop is postponed. The new date has not yet been fixed

Aim of the workshop

The goal of the workshop is twofold. On the one hand, we aim to bring together experts in the field employing spatial dynamics or related approaches. On the other hand, the workshop is an opportunity for early-career researchers to get acquainted with recent advances and to present their own work through contributed talks or by participating in the poster session.

The workshop will take place from Wednesday July 22, 12:30 until Friday July 24, 13:00.

The program of the workshop encompasses 11 plenary lectures, in which the speakers provide an overview on spatial dynamics and related methods and sketch the relationship to their current research. Envisioned topics are discrete and continuous spatial dynamics, center manifold theory, fluids and Hamiltonian spatial dynamics, localized waves and coherent structures, variational methods, lattice dynamical systems and differential equations of mixed type. In addition, there will be a limited number of slots for contributed talks of about 30 minutes each and a poster session.

A detailed program schedule will be posted on this website well in advance of the workshop.

Note that the workshop is held the week before the SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures in Bremen.

We are accepting submissions for poster presentations and for a limited number of contributed talks. To apply for a contributed talk or a poster presentation, please send an e-mail with title and abstract to Björn de Rijk. The deadline for submissions for contributed talks is April 1, 2020.

Local organizers are Guido Schneider and Björn de Rijk. The workshop is organized in corporation with CRC 1173 "wave phenomena: analysis and numerics" at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Local contact at KIT is Wolfgang Reichel.
