Trends in Operator Theory and its Applications: A Workshop for Young Researchers


Locate in map@ Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa

TOTA2021 is a hybrid conference, with both online and in-person talks, taking place at Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, on June 25, 2021. It will be held alongside and in coordination with WOTCA 2021.

Its main goals are to foster contact between leading mathematicians and younger researchers and to create a network of research support with ties for active collaborations.

TOTA 2021 welcomes talks by graduate students and young researchers on Operator Theory and related topics.

The meeting is supported by CAMGSD/Center for Mathematical Analysis, Geometry and Dynamical Systems of Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, through project UID/MAT/04459/2020 and by the National Science Foundation Conference Award DMS-1956360.

Workshop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2021 - WOTCA 2021

21/06/2021 — 24/06/2021

This meeting aims to bring together researchers working in Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and their applications, in particular Mathematical Physics, and to create an opportunity to highlight the current state of the art in these fields, to present open problems and to promote  collaborative discussions.

The meeting follows the line of six previous workshops, WOTCA 2010WOTCA 20122-Day OTCA 2013WOTCA 2014WOTCA 2016WOTCA 2017 and WOTCA 2018. The main difference with respect to the previous WOTCA meetings will be that we will have online talks, which we expect to be the norm, but we plan to conjugate them with some in-person talks.

The meeting is supported by CAMGSD/Center for Mathematical Analysis, Geometry and Dynamical Systems of Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, through project UID/MAT/04459/2020.

Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations – PSPDE IX

19/07/2021 — 23/07/2021

@ School of Sciences of the University of Minho

In a hybrid format with in-person and online participations, 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 15 invited talks.

Joint organization by Centro de Matemática (University of Minho), Centro de Análise Matemática, Geometria e Sistemas Dinâmicos (University of Lisbon), Centro de Matemática, Aplicações Fundamentais e Investigação Operacional (University of Lisbon) and University of Nice (France).
