International Conference on PDEs, Geometric Analysis and Functional Inequalities

Date: 7 – 10 March 2017

Venue: University of Sydney, Australia

The aim of this conference is demonstrate and strengthen connections between partial differential equations, geometry, and functional inequalities. The conference will also foster and invigorate the Japanese–Australian partnership in mathematics, especially in nonlinear analysis, building on a fine history of collaboration and support between our mathematical communities. This conference is generously sponsored by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI), the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS), Tohoku University (Japan), the University of Wollongong and the University of Sydney. We also thank Professor Nalini Joshi for a contribution through her ARC Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship.
