A conference in honour of the 60th birthday of Nassif Ghoussoub

to be held at the University of British Columbia

This conference brings together world-renowned researchers in areas of mathematical analysis and PDE such as optimal transportation, the calculus of variations, convex analysis, elliptic systems, and geometric analysis, which are grounded in applications to the natural and social sciences while generating exciting new directions for mathematical research. Its primary aims are to survey the state-of-the-art in these interrelated fields, expand the connections between them, identify key future directions, and encourage a new generation of scientists to advance this fundamental area of mathematics.
