Many subtle and important physical processes involve the intricate interaction between macroscopic and microscopic scales. By providing a mesoscopic scale in between, kinetic theory is the mathematical framework for understanding many of these systems, for example, in plasma physics, gas dynamics, and neutron transport. This theory presents numerous difficult, unsolved challenges in a variety of fields, such as scientific computing, mathematical analysis, and modeling.


The goal of this conference is to bring young, energetic researchers working in kinetic theory and related fields together to exchange ideas and facilitate collaborations. The focus is mainly on the mathematical analysis, modeling, and computation of kinetic theory (and related topics) in physical sciences, such as material science, neutron transport, plasma physics, and fluid mechanics. Other applications of kinetic theory, such as to mathematical biology, may also be discussed.
