The first announcement for the

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

IN DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

July 17-21, 2006, Guangzhou University

Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, P. R. China

 

We are organizing an international conference on “Recent Developments In Differential Equations and Applications” to be held at Guangzhou University, Guangzhou, P. R. China, from July 17--21, 2006.  Its main purpose is to stimulate the interest of young scientists and students in the area of functional differential equations, to bring together researchers in several areas of differential equations, and to nurture high quality scientific activity and to strengthen international scientific collaboration.

One special goal of this conference is to promote the research in functional differential equations, not only in China but also worldwide. For this purpose, we are planning to offer a series of intensive mini-courses on advanced topics in functional differential equations preceding the conference (July 10-16) by five leading experts in this area. The lecturers are:  Shui-Nee Chow (Georgia Tech, USA), John Mallet-Paret (Brown, USA), Roger Nussbaum (Rutgers, USA), Hans-Otto Walther (Giessen, Germany) and Jianhong Wu (York, Canada). Graduate students and junior researchers are especially encouraged to take these courses. The conference is sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), by the National Ministry of Education and by Guangzhou University.

For details about this conference and the preceding mini-courses will be added to this web page in a timely fashion, so please check back later. Or if you can not wait, please contact the conference secretariat at
