EQUADIFF 13, Prague, August 26–30, 2013

Under the name "Equadiff", two series of important international conferences on differential equations have been organized every two years alternatively in Eastern and Western Europe during the last decades. The next Equadiff 13 takes place in Prague in the period August 26–30, 2013.

Mathematical Thermodynamics of Fluids

Starting date of the project: May 1-st, 2013

Oberwolfach Seminar: Analysis of Compressible Navier Stokes Equations and Related Topics

The ``Oberwolfach seminar'' will be organized by Eduard Feireisl (Prague), David Gérard-Varet (Paris), Rupert Klein (Berlin), Antonín Novotný (Toulon) in Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 23 - 29 November, 2014. The main goal of the proposed Seminar is to present and discuss the state of the art of the mathematical theory of complete fluid systems, with the emphasis put on the underlying thermodynamical principles. Highlighting the new emerging trends we aim to inspire young researchers in their future activities.
