Scope: This is a satellite workshop of the Isaac Newton Institute programme "Dispersive hydrodynamics: mathematics, simulation and experiments, with applications in nonlinear waves". It aims to bring together leading experts in the field of nonlinear waves, dispersive hydrodynamics and the relevant mathematical techniques. We plan a combination of research and review talks emphasising the key concepts, ideas and problems in a way accessible to any qualified mathematician / PhD student in the field.

The programme will consist of about 25 invited talks. Lectures will take place in the room U020 in the Schofield building.

Social Programme:

On Wednesday 14 September 2022 there will be an excursion to Chatsworth House followed by the Poster Session and Drinks Reception in the foyer near the room U020 in the Schofield building. Conference Dinner will take place at 7-9pm on Thursday 15 September 2022 at Burleigh Court. Here is the Burleigh Court on a map.
