31st Annual Shanks Conference and Lectures: International Conference on Evolution Equations, May 16 – 20, 2016

This conference will focus on recent developments in partial differential equations connected to evolution problems. Topics will include, but are not limited to, fluid dynamics, free boundary problems, dispersive equations, parabolic equations, Einstein’s equations, and non-linear wave equations. The activities will include fifty-minute talks by the keynote speakers, parallel focus sessions with twenty-five-minute presentations, and 10-minute contributed talks. Part of the conference will be a special tribute to the mathematical work of Jan Prüss on the occasion of his 65th birthday. The annual Shanks Lecture, delivered by Lawrence C. Evans from the University of California at Berkeley, will take place in conjunction with the conference. We expect to have funding for graduate students, recent PhDs, and underrepresented minorities.
