SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

November 27, 2014

April 13-14, 2007
Young Mathematicians' Conference in PDE and Dynamical Systems IV

held at the Fields Institute

Organizers:
Walter Craig, Adrian Nachman, Dmitry Pelinovsky, Mary Pugh, Catherine Sulem
Supported by

A conference of junior researchers in the areas of PDE and Dynamical Systems. will be held April 13-14 at the Fields Institute, Toronto. The goal is to encourage scientific exchange, and to create an opportunity for mathematicians in an early stage of their career to get to know each other and each other's work.
