We invite you to
participate in the 11th Americas Conference on Differential Equations and Nonlinear Analysis (Americas XI)
at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, from August 12-19, 2017. The XI Americas Conference is dedicated to the memory of Professor George R. Sell.
The first three days of the conference, August 12-14, 2017, are for the Summer School on New Trends and Applications of Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The XI Americas Conference will ran from August 15-19, 2017.
We would also like to bring to your attention the concurrent PIMS Workshop on Nonlinear Stochastic Dynamics at the University of Alberta, August 12-14, 2017.
The XI Americas Conference brings
together mathematicians from throughout the Americas to share their recent research findings, to assess
recent research developments, to identify new research directions, and to strengthen existing and foster
new collaborations in the broad field of differential
equations and nonlinear analysis.
The Americas Conference on Differential Equations and Nonlinear Analysis (Americas Conference)
series started in 1994 with the goal of promoting collaboration among researchers from Latin America,
the USA and Canada in this broadly defined area of Mathematics. This conference series has become a
well-established forum for mathematics motivated by applications ranging from disciplines in natural and
social sciences to engineering. From its inception the conference has strived to achieve several goals:
to foster and enhance collaborations among scientists; to ensure high standards of the research, and to
promote the incorporation of young mathematicians from the Americas into these fields. Recognizing
the variability in training with regard to breadth, depth, and concurrency, and motivated by the desire
to maximize the experience of the junior participants, both with regard to assimilation of the different
aspects of the subjects covered during the conference period and to foster their motivation towards high
level research in nonlinear and applied mathematics, intensive tutorial lectures have been included since
the VI Americas Conference (January 10-21, 2005).
The first meeting took place in Taxco, Mexico, in 1994 with the participation of 25 lecturers
from the USA, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela. Since then, meetings have taken place on a regular basis:
Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1996; Atlanta, USA, in 1998; Merida, Venezuela, in 2000; Edmonton, Canada in 2002,
Santiago, Chile, in 2005; Cartagena, Colombia in 2007; Veracruz, Mexico, in 2009; Trujillo, Peru, in 2012;
and Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2015.
There are several notable new features at the Americas XI:
Poster Session on the Web.
This innovative feature is aimed to further encourage
participation of graduate students and young researchers, especially those without resources to
participate in person. Posters will be submitted online, and after being screened by the Organizing Committees,
accepted posters will be posted on the conference website. A special time will be allocated for people to
participate in this online poster session. A cash prize will be awarded to the best student poster,
selected by the Scientific Committee.
George R. Sell Lecture Series.
The George R. Sell lecture series is a new feature to the Americas conference series,
sponsored by Springer. The Inaugural Sell Lecture will be delivered at this conference by Professor John Mallet-Paret of
A main theme session dedicated to Ion Channel Problems on analysis and applications to the biologically
central topic of ion channel properties, for the first time in the Americas Conference series.
A main theme session dedicated to Computation in Dynamical Systems, for the first time in the
Americas Conference series.
Subject to our funding applications, studentships will be available to provide
partial support for graduate students, and for participants from South American countries and Mexico
to participate in the conference. Further details will be
provided on the website.
Hope to see you in Edmonton.
