2012 Young Researchers Workshop:
Kinetic Description of Multiscale Phenomena

Oct 10 - 13, 2012

UW-Madison Visitor Guide




Kinetic descriptions play a  critical role in the physical, social, and biological sciences, and have expanded into diverse applications of cutting-edge technology ranging from materials. chemistry, biology to social sciences.  Modern kinetic theory captures fundamental issues in the modeling and simulation of phenomena across length and time scales, from the atomistic to the continuum.


This workshop is targeting primarily researchers at an early stage of their career, in order to discuss recent  development in the modeling and simulation of multiscale phenomena via kinetic methods. It is also aimed to promoting more collaborations between young researchers with common interests in relevant fields.

The topics to be discussed include quantum dynamics with applications to chemistry;  network dynamics with applications to social sciences; and kinetic models of biological processes.
