Calculus of Variations and its Applications on the occasion of Luísa Mascarenhas' 65th birthday
2015-12-17 — 2015-12-19

The aim of the workshop is both to bring together experts on Calculus of Variations and its applications, promoting the exchange of ideas and attracting young scientists to the field, and also to honor Professor Luísa Mascarenhas, recently retired, for her contribution to Science.

The workshop will take place at Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Campus de Caparica, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and will count with several talks by eminent researchers covering a wide range of methods to treat problems in Engineering, Mechanics and Life Sciences. Several of the invited speakers have directly collaborated with Professor Luísa Mascarenhas.

UT Austin | Portugal CoLab Program: Autumn School in Nonlinear Science
2015-10-05 — 2015-10-09

The school aims at bringing together prominent researchers, known for their expertise in modeling, analysis and simulation of nonlinear phenomena, and graduate and post-graduate students from around the world for five days of research training.  The school comprises an intensive program of week-long short courses complemented by tutorial sessions run by post-graduate students. It will focus on non-local or nonlinear partial differential equations with applications ranging from phase transitions and free boundary problems to porous media flows and contaminant transport in subsurface environments.

We expect to be able to fund the local expenses of up to 25 students
