Particle Systems and PDE's - III

This is a third meeting on Particle Systems and PDE's to be held at the Centre of Mathematics of the University of Minho, from the 17th to the 19th of December 2014. 

The idea of the meeting is to get together researchers from two different areas of mathematics, namely Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations, and to present recent scientific results in both areas. 

We expect the participation of a vast audience, including young researchers and PhD students, and we intend to present and exploit the interdisciplinary nature of mathematics as well as its applications in various areas.

Place: University of Minho, Campus de Gualtar, Braga.
Room: Laboratory 4 at the Mathematics Department.
Date: 17th to 19th December 2014.

Registration: Attendance is free but needs registration up to the 1st of December. To register please send an email to
