International Conference on Elliptic and Parabolic Problems


Organized by: B. Brighi, M. Chipot, A. Corbo Esposito, C. Sbordone, I. Shafrir, V. Valente, G. Vergara Caffarelli

Besides Elliptic and Parabolic issues, the topics of the conference include Geometry, Free Boundary Problems, Fluid Mechanics, Evolution Problems in general, Calculus of Variations, Homogenization, Control, Modeling and Numerical Analysis. In addition to the plenary talks parallel sessions and minisymposia will be organized.

Everybody is welcome to organise a minisymposium. The deadline for submitting a proposal is March 31, 2017. Information regarding the organisation of such an event could be obtained by contacting Mrs Schacher.

The provisional list of minisymposia includes:
  • Variational Analysis for Nonlinear Phenomena, organized by Annamaria Barbagallo, Maria Alessandra Ragusa and Andrea Scapellato
  • Variational Problems in L^\infty and related issued, organized by Francesca Prinari and Elvira Zappale

Gaeta, where the conference will take place, is in the gulf of Serapo between Rome and Naples. From Rome Fiumicino Airport "Leonardo da Vinci" take a train to ROMA TERMINI (the main railways station of Rome) and, once there, take a train to FORMIA. At the Formia station you will find shuttle busses to Gaeta. If you prefer you can take a taxi. You can get information about train-schedules at the Italian Railways web-site. The hotel is located directly at the sea, just a ten minute walk from the old city of Gaeta.
