8th International Conference on

Function Spaces, Differential Operators, Nonlinear Analysis


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

Second 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) and the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. We thank you for your interest and would like to give some further information.

    We received many further applications for talks (20 minutes) and try to arrange the program as convenient as possible. But surely we cannot avoid parallel sessions taking place in the afternoons. Moreover, a small number of talks will be selected in advance and granted an extended length (35 minutes).

    We ask all participants (who have not yet done this) to send us titles & abstracts of their talks

    by June 15, 2011, at latest.

    There will also be an opportunity for ad hoc -seminars.

    The lecture rooms will be equipped with overhead projector, data projector + laptop, and a small board.

    You can have a look at the (preliminary) list of participants and the corresponding abstracts via our web-site.

  2. Lecture Notes
    Instead of (usual, printed) Proceedings we plan to offer all speakers of this workshop the possibility to send us their material, slides etc. afterwards (preferably in pdf). Alternatively also a (closely linked) paper would be welcome.
    We collect all this material (or links to your personal web pages) and "publish" it on a special web page of this workshop such that participants can download the files. You may contact us if you have any question.
  3. Registration
    You will receive a separate Email within the next days where we ask you to confirm and complete your details for the registration. As soon as you reply to this email to us


    your registration becomes binding and we shall reserve the accommodation according to your wishes then. You should reply to this confirmation message by

    by June 15, 2011, at latest.

  4. Please note, that we cannot guarantee that everyone who applied for a single room can have it, because the total number of rooms is restricted (and we shall have a lot of participants). So please read your confirmation message carefully! We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you in advance.

  5. 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.
