6th IST-IME Meeting
2016-09-05 — 2016-09-09

This meeting, whose scope comprises Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations and related topics, aims to promote integration of researchers of both IST and IME (and other institutions), with the presentation of research works and plenary lectures of the participants.

This edition will honor the 85th birthday of Waldyr Oliva, our extraordinary mathematical bridge across the South Atlantic.

Calculus of Variations and its Applications on the occasion of Luísa Mascarenhas's 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.

Oswald Veblen Prize 2016 awarded to André Neves

André Arroja Neves, Professor of Imperial College, UK, colaborator and frequent visitor of CAMGSD, was awarded, jointly with Codá Marques from Princeton University, the 2016 Oswald Veblen Prize by the American Mathematical Society. This distinction celebrates his contribuitions in topology and differential geometry, and stresses the solution of the Willmore Conjecture.

André Neves is a former student of the Licenciatura em Matemática Aplicada e Computação and was a lecturer at the Department of Mathematics of Instituto Superior Técnico. He will be one of the speakers at the 1st Meeting of Mathematics Students which will be held at Técnico in March 2016.

Graduate research grants

CAMGSD will offer six Graduate research grants, intended for students enrolled in a Master program. The winning candidates will do research work in the thematic areas of the Center and will be supervised by, at least, one of its members. The fellowships will run from: May 2016 to August 2017 (2 grants) and September 2016 to August 2017 (4 grants). The call is expected to open in February 2016.

Highlighted article by JL Costa, PM Girão, J Natário and J Drumond Silva

The article On the global uniqueness for the Einstein-Maxwell-scalar field system with a cosmological constant: I Well posedness and breakdown criterion by JL Costa, PM Girão, J Natário and J Drumond Silva was selected as one of the Classical and Quantum Gravity's Highlights of 2014-2015. Highlighted articles represent the most original and high interest work published in the journal.

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
