This workshop will focus on current trends in mathematical theories of kinetic descriptions -- the interplay between modeling, analysis and computation, with various applications in physical, biological and social sciences. Starting with classical theories for collisional transport, topics to be covered in this workshop range from deterministic and stochastic mean-field descriptions of plasma, material, gasdynamics, ... and emerging behavior in collective dynamics of active matter, to numerics, UQ and multiscale analysis of the interactions between macro- and microscopic scales.


The goal of this conference is to bring together young researchers working in kinetic theory and related fields to exchange ideas and facilitate collaborations. This will be the sixth in the series of Young Researcher Workshops (YRWs) hosted by Ki-Net.


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

Applications for participation can be made through the Online Application. Applicants who are also interested in making a poster presentation can specify their preference to do so in the “comments section” of their application. Due to space limitations, these requests are subject to approval by the organizers.
