This  Conference is the second part of a program with a concentration period that includes a school and a conference on “Calculus of Variations and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations”.  It will bring together research groups in non-linear partial and integral equations  from the NSF funded program “Focused Research Group (FRG): “Vectorial and geometric problems in the Calculus of Variations””  and NSF Research Network in Mathematical Sciences (RNMS) in “Kinetic Description of emerging challenges in multiscale problems of natural sciences; (Ki-Net)”.

In addition, researchers working within the framework of the The UT Austin|Portugal Program are welcome to participate with the support of CoLab Mathematics funding. This program facilitates collaborative research between faculty members and researchers at UT Austin and Portuguese universities.


The entire two-week program will take place at UT Austin from May 18, 2015 until May 29, 2015 and will involve senior and junior researchers, postdocs and graduate students. During the first week, there will be a school consisting of three minicourses, each six hours, while the second week will host a conference with a series of one-hour lectures.
