10 April to 13 April 2007

Workshop Organisers: BM Brown (Cardiff), P Exner (Czech Academy of Sciences), J Keating (Bristol), P Kuchment (Texas A&M) and B Pavlov (Auckland)

in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled
Analysis on Graphs and its Applications (8 January to 29 June 2007)

Theme of Workshop:

This workshop is a counterpart of the preceding meeting devoted to analysis on graphs. It aims at presentation, discussion and comparison of applications of graph models in numerous fields where such structures appear. The main among them concerns modelling of microscopic semiconductor structures expected to be building blocks of future electronic devices, however, the intended subject list covers topics such as superconductivity, microwave networks and photonic crystals, as well as applications in medicine, transport and other areas.

From the methodical point of view the aim is to bring together a diverse group of people ranging from mathematicians interested in structural properties of such models to those dealing with specific systems. Research students and postdocs are encouraged to apply.


Location and Cost:

The workshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The conference package, costing £450, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on dinner on Monday 9 April 2007 to breakfast on Saturday 14 April 2007, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place. Limited financial support maybe available to EU young postdocs and EU doctoral students. Participants who wish to attend but do not require accommodation or meals will be charged a registration fee of £90. Self-supporting participants are very welcome to apply.

Application Forms:

Are available here. Invited participants to the semester long programme whose dates coincide with those of the workshop need not apply or pay any registration fee.

Closing Date:

The closing date for the receipt of applications has been extended to: 29 December 2006
