8th International Conference on

Function Spaces, Differential Operators, Nonlinear Analysis


September 18-24, 2011, in Tabarz/Thür. (Germany)

First Announcement

The Research Group "Function spaces" in the Mathematical Institute of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena organises the 8th International Conference on "Function Spaces, Differential Operators, and Nonlinear Analysis" (FSDONA-2011) in Tabarz in Thuringia.

This meeting will continue the series of previous successful FSDONA-conferences held in Finland, Czech Republic and Germany,

It is our intention to stimulate international collaboration, and to promote the interaction of function spaces, PDE and computational mathematics in unifying efforts. This time the focus will lie on the theory of function spaces and its applications to various fields of mathematics like
  • PDE's (existence of solutions and regularity theory),
  • spectral theory of differential and integral operators,
  • approximation and computational mathematics,
  • nonlinear analysis,
  • inverse problems.
The conference is mainly funded by the DFG (Ha 2794/6-1).
  1. Lectures
    The programme of the conference consists of invited main lectures and a limited number of shorter communications given by the participants.

    We are glad that the following speakers already accepted our invitation to give plenary lectures:

    Please indicate your intention to give a talk and do not forget to send us your abstract in the (preliminary) registration form! There will be an opportunity for ad hoc-seminars.

  2. Venue
    The Conference will take place in the Hotel "Am Burgholz" in Tabarz/Thür. situated in a beautiful countryside about 100 km west of Jena.

    The charming Kneipp health resort Tabarz is situated right in the middle of the biggest coherent forest area of Germany on the base of the 916,5 meter high mountain "Inselsberg" and quite near is Germany's most famous hiking trail, the "Rennsteig". One may enjoy the nice and well cared-for gardens of the two spa-parks or one can visit the fairy-tale meadow "Lauchagrund" which is also part of the "German road of toys".

    Since September 2001, Tabarz is a place of cure recognised officially by the State and carries the title "Kneippkurort". It is a method which implements the rules of the natural therapist and homoeopath Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897). Visitors benefit from the adequate climate and the splendid landscape for long walks or excursions; also the large indoor swimming pool "TABBS" is very popular and well-known. Close to Tabarz there are many interesting places which are worth the effort to be known and seen.

    Gotha, only a few kilometres away from Tabarz, has direct fast train connections to Berlin and Frankfurt/Main.

  3. Costs
    The accommodation is arranged at the hotel in single and double rooms with full board (buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner). The price is 87 € per night and person in a single room and 82 € per night and person in a double room. The conference fee is 80 €.
  4. Registration
    If you are interested please pre-register online

    before February 28, 2011.

    Please note that the number of places is limited.


The second announcement with further details will be mailed until the end of April 2011.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Tabarz.
