Scope: This is a satellite workshop of the INI 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 SCH 0.01 in the Schofield building.

Social Programme: On Wednesday 16 September 2020 there will be an excursion to Chatsworth House followed by the Conference Dinner at Burleigh Court (See the programme above for timing. Here is the Burleigh Court on a map) 


There will be no registration fee for this conference

Key deadlines:
Abstract submission for invited talks (send a pdf file with the title, your name, affiliation and a short abstract to 31 May 2020
Registration and on-campus accommodation booking for other participants: 31 July 2020

Recommended arrival and departure dates: 13 September 2020 (any time) and 18 September 2020 (afternoon)

Sponsors: University of Cambridge, Research Councils UK, CMI, London Mathematical Society, Rothschild, Loughborough University
