Short description of the event: 

"PDEs for multiphase advanced materials"
September 17-21, 2012
Palazzone, Cortona, Italy

During the workshop, a special session will be dedicated to
the 65th birthday of Professor Gianni Gilardi.

The Workshop is sponsored by INDAM and the ERC Program EntroPhase.

Main aim of the meeting is to investigate, both from modeling and
analytical point of view, multiphase advanced materials, which
represent a new challenging field in the theoretical and technological
research. In particular, the workshop will be focused on the following subjects:
Shape memory effects
Liquid crystals
Ferromagnetic materials
Two-phase fluids
Gas storage in alloys

Cortona is a wonderful Etruscan town built on a hilltop, south of Florence and
close to Umbria. Good train connections allow to reach Cortona quite easily from
Florence and Rome. The Workshop will take place at the "Palazzone'', a prestigious
historical palace located not far from the town.
