The conference is centered at the crossroads of Geometry and Partial Differential Equations, with topics including (but not limited to):
geometrically motivated problems in the Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations (e.g., harmonic, n-harmonic and p-harmonic maps,
H-systems, geometric curvature energies),
Harmonic Analysis and Nonlinear Potential Theory,
Geometric Analysis and Geometric Function Theory,
applications of the above in nonlinear elasticity theory, continuum mechanics etc.
A small celebration of Prof. Paweł Strzelecki’s birthday is planned during the event.
Funding is available: during registration you can apply to waive the conference fee The deadline to apply for financial support is April 1st, 2023.
Będlewo Conference Center is part of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IM PAN) and its Banach Center.
