KI-Net Conference Announcement

Transport phenomena in collective dynamics: from micro to social hydrodynamics
A joint FIM-KiNet conference

Nov 1 - 4, 2016

FIM - Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik

Visitor Guide




In recent years there have been rapid developments in mathematical description of collective dynamics, driven by nonlinear transport equations with local and non-local means. This includes multi-scale phenomena ranging from agent-based through kinetic and hydrodynamics descriptions of models related to the emergence of coherent structures in crowd and traffic dynamics, flocking, swarming, ... The modeling, analysis and efficient computation of these phenomena are the main focus of this conference.  


This aim of this conference is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of transport across multiple scales and present state of art theoretical and numerical results and their interplay with current applications.


Invited participants can RSVP and provide the additional requested information about their stay, including the title and abstract of proposed talks, here.

Applicants for participation are requested to register here and are subject to approval by the organizers. The deadline of application for partial funding has expired.
