Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations – PSPDE XI

06/11/2023 — 10/11/2023

@ Instituto Superior Técnico

The meeting brings together active researchers working in the fields of Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations that present their latest scientific results.

We expect the participation of a vast audience, including young researchers and PhD students, and we intend to present and exploit the interdisciplinary nature of mathematics as well as its applications in various areas. The meeting includes 2 mini-courses and several invited talks.

Atlantic Conference in Nonlinear PDEs

30/10/2023 — 03/11/2023

@ Instituto Superior Técnico

The main goal of the first edition of the Atlantic Conference in Nonlinear PDEs is to bring together the parallel communities working in the fields of nonlinear elliptic and dispersive PDEs to present their latest scientific achievements and to encourage future interdisciplinary collaborations.

There will be 18 plenary talks, together with 2 parallel sessions of contributed talks and a poster session. Young researchers and PhD students are most welcome.

Silver medal for Técnico/LMAC students at the MIUP 2023 programming contest


@ Universidade de Coimbra, Departamento de Informática

The MIUP 2023 Inter-University Programming Marathon took place on October 21st, at the Department of IT, University of Coimbra.

20 teams participated, including 5 from Técnico. The Inlaws LMAC team, composed by António da Rocha Neves, Pedro Bezerra Costa and Rui Zhu Wang, won a silver medal, and the Dynamical IST team, from various Técnico courses, composed by Rita Almeida, Tiago Miguel Gomes de Sousa and Vasco Pires, won a bronze medal. The Heroes of the C team from the University of Porto won this competition.

The teams will participate in the SWERC (South West European Regional Contest) in Paris at the end of January 2024. The best teams from SWERC will take part in the ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest) world final.

International Workshop on Approximation and Numerical Analysis of Singular Problems (IWANASP 2023)

12/10/2023 — 14/10/2023

Hotel Régua Douro, Peso da Régua, Portugal

The main objective of the 7th International Workshop on Analysis and Numerical Approximation of Singular Problems (IWANASP 2023) is to bring together mathematicians who deal with singular problems in different fields. By singular problems we understand different kinds of equations (including differential, integral, integro-differential and other types of functional equations) whose solutions have an unusual behavior, which may assume the form of unboundedness, lack of smoothness, bifurcation, etc. The scientific program includes invited talks (40 min) and contributed talks (20 min).
