AROUND CALCULUS OF VARIATIONS
August 29 - September 1, 2007
(Tuesday, August 28 is the day of arrival)
Our four-days seminar will be held in a small village Male Ciche near
Zakopane, in Polish Tatra Mountains. It will be devoted to the
discussion on various topics around Calculus of Variations
by an interdisciplinary gremium. Our meeting will have a style of
the traditional seminar. Lectures will be given on two traditional
blackboards with a chock. Young researchers and PhD students are
particularly welcome.
We plan around 16 one-hour lectures (which can be splited by two
half-hour lectures): 4 lectures a day, 2 before
lunch and 2 after dinner and a poster session. The time slot
between breakfast and lunch will be
devoted to discussions between participants.

of payments can be found in the following
