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)
was initiated in 1994 to facilitate collaboration among researchers from Latin America,
USA and Canada in this area of Mathematics.
This conference series is a well-established forum for mathematics with applications ranging from natural and social sciences to engineering. From its inception, the conference has striven to promote collaborative scientific networks, to emphasize high standards of research, and to welcome young mathematicians from the Americas into the broader scientific community.
Recognizing the diversity in background and training of participants, intensive tutorial lectures have been featured 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 innovation will facilitate participation of graduate students and young researchers, especially those who are unable to participate in person. Posters will be submitted online, and after a screening process, accepted posters will be posted on the conference website. A special time will be allocated for live online discussion of the posters among authors and conference participants. 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 Brown University.
- Ion Channel Problems. A main theme session on analysis and applications to the biologically central topic of ion channel properties will be included for the first time in the Americas Conference series.
- Computation in Dynamical Systems. A main theme session will be dedicated to this topic for the first time in the Americas Conference series.
Subject to our funding applications, financial assistance 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.
