Participants of the workshop

From September 5 to September 7 the workshop "Spatial Dynamics" took place at the University of Stuttgart, which has been a center of spatial dynamics for several decades due to pivotal research of Prof. Klaus Kirchgässner and collaborators conducted there.

The workshop attracted 39 researchers applying spatial dynamics or related approaches. After 3 more general overview lectures by experts in the field, there were 17 specialized talks, portraying the ongoing development of spatial dynamics and stressing its importance in ongoing research. Moreover, the workshop provided a platform for early-career researchers to get acquainted with spatial dynamics and its recent advances. Eight of them presented their own work in a poster session.

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 Monday, September 5, 9:00 until Wednesday, September 7, 13:00.

The program of the workshop encompasses 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.

Note that the workshop is held the week after the SIAM NWCS 2022 in Bremen.

Program Schedule

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 June 1, 2022.

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, contact is Wolfgang Reichel.
