Università di Padova, Italy

Short description of the event: 

The Fourteenth International Conference on "Hyperbolic Problems: Theory, Numerics and Applications" (HYP2012) will be the XIV meeting in this bi-annual international series, which has the objective of bringing together researchers and students with interests in theoretical and computational aspects of hyperbolic PDEs and of related time-dipendent models in the applied sciences. We expect that HYP2012 will provide an inspiring and productive forum: to get acquainted with the most recent developments in the area of hyperbolic problems, to stimulate and exchange new ideas from different disciplines, and to formulate new challenging problems that will have impact on diverse fields of applications.

Particular attention will be devoted to the following topics:

-Singular limits and dispersive equations in mathematical physics
-Nonlinear wave patterns in multi-dimensions
-Particle/molecular dynamics
-Theory and numerics of multiphases and interfaces
-Transport in complex environments
-Control problems for hyperbolic PDEs and differential games
-General relativity and geometric PDEs

We have an impressive list of plenary and invited speakers. The list of confirmed plenary speakers includes:

Camillo De Lellis (University of Zürich)
Eduard Feireisl (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic)
Song Jiang (Beijing Institute of Applied Physics and Computational Mathematics)
Pierre Louis Lions (College de France)
Nader Masmoudi (Courant Institute)
Siddhartha Mishra (ETH Zürich)
Igor Rodnianski (MIT)
Giovanni Russo (Università di Catania)
James A. Sethian (University of California, Berkeley)
Yoshio Sone (Kyoto University)
Alexis F. Vasseur (University of Texas at Austin)
Sijue Wu (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)
Enrique Zuazua (Basque Center for Applied Mathematics)

Further information about the conference can be obtained from the website:

We urge all the interested participants to register and to submit their abstracts for contributed talks or for poster presentations at their earliest convenience using the online form available at, after performing their registration. The deadline for abstract submission is FEBRUARY 29, 2012. The deadline for registration at a reduced rate is APRIL 30, 2012. A block of hotel rooms was secured at a reduced HYP2012 rate, for reservations made before MAY 15, 2012. Detailed schedule and lodging information is available at the conference website.

Partial financial support will be available for young researchers. Requests for financial support must be submitted through the online registration
form on the website of the conference. The deadline to apply for financial support is FEBRUARY 29, 2012.

We thank you in advance for advertising this forthcoming conference.
