Abstracts of Talks

Registration: There is no registration fee. However, if you are interested in participating, please fill in the form below and click on the "Submit Registration Information" button at the bottom of the page in order to register for the conference. This will help the organizers make proper catering arrangements and dinner reservations.

Online registration is now closed.

Funding: Limited funding for junior participants is available through an NSF conference grant awarded to UCSD. To apply for funding, please send a CV (including your research interests and the name of your advisor/mentor) to zlatos at Mathematicians from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Accommodations: Participants should make their own accommodation arrangements. A block of rooms has been reserved in the Atrium Hotel in Irvine at the nightly rate $119 + tax. Participants should call 1-800-854-3012 by May 1, 2019 and reference ``Department of Mathematics - SCPDE2019'' to guarantee this rate. The conference is expected to end around noon on Sunday.

Important note for J1 visa holders: Professors and research scholars may participate in occasional lectures and short-term consultations, if authorized to do so by their sponsor. Such lectures and consultations must be incidental to the exchange visitor's primary program activities. If wages or other remuneration are received by the exchange visitor for such activities, the exchange visitor must act as an independent contractor, as defined in 8 CFR 274a.1(j), and the relevant criteria and procedures must be satisfied. For example J-1 scholars coming from Yale to present a lecture at a UCSD-sponsored conference should receive a letter from Yale's International Center indicating that they are eligible to receive a reimbursement from UCSD. Such a request must be done BEFORE the event.
