International Conference on Free Boundary Problems: Theory and Applications


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

23rd June 2014 to 27th June 2014

Organisers: Gui-Qiang Chen (Oxford), Charlie Elliott (Warwick) and John King (Nottingham)

Workshop Theme

In conjunction with the Isaac Newton Institute programme, this is the 13th International Conference on Free Boundary Problems: Theory and Applications, in the series beginning in Montecatini (Italy, 1981) and succeeding in Maubuisson (France, 1984), Irsee (Germany, 1987), Montreal (Canada, 1990), Toledo (Spain, 1993), Zakopane (Poland, 1995), Crete (Greece, 1997), Chiba (Japan, 1999), Trento (Italy, 2002), Coimbra (Portugal, 2005), Stockholm (Sweden, 2008), and Chiemsee (Germany, 2012). The aim of the conference is to bring together mathematical scientists with interests in the theory, numerics and applications of free boundary problems and discuss recent significant advances and current trends/directions in Free Boundary Problems and Related Topics.

There will be seven focus sessions on Free Boundary Problems (FBPs):

  • Analysis of Free Boundary Problems
  • FBPs in Fluid Mechanics
  • FBPs in mixed PDEs
  • Numerics for FBPs
  • FBPs in Materials Science
  • FBPs in Biology
  • Recent developments in FBPs
