International Conference on Mechanics and PDEs
- On the occasion of Marshall Slemrod's 60th Birthday
April 30--May 2, 2004
University of Wisconsin-Madison
An International Conference on Mechanics and PDEs will be held in Madison, Wisconsin from April 30-May 2, 2004, to celebrate the 60th Birthday of Professor Marshall Slemrod. The goal of this workshop is to bring in top applied mathematicians and promising young researchers in the area of mechanics and nonlinear PDEs to discuss the most recent advances in this area, and to foster interactions between senior researchers and young participants. Former students and colleagues of Marshall are also welcome to join us in this happy occasion.
This conference is supported in part by the Institute for Mathematics
and its Application (IMA) through its Participating Institution (PI)
Program. PI members may use IMA/PI funds to support travel of their
personnel to this conference.
If you have trouble with the Friedrick Center you may also try
UW Lowell Hall at 610 Langdon St, which is next to the campus and close
to the math department.
Their phone number is 608-256-2621.
Some financial support is available for young researchers. To apply,
please send an email (with name, affiliation, gender, research field, and
