13th Annual Workshop on Numerical Methods for Problems with Layer Phenomena

Dedicated to the 90th birthday of A.B. Vasil’eva
Wednesday, 6th – Saturday, 9th April 2016

13th Annual workshop is organized by the Department of Mathematics of Physics Faculty at Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together people, in the mathematics and general scientific community, who have particular interests in the development and applications of asymptotic and numerical methods for problems that exhibit layer phenomena, such as boundary/interior layers in different applications.

The previous meeting in this series was 12th Annual Workshop on Numerical Methods for Problems with Layer Phenomena (Dresden, Germany, 9th – 10th April 2015).

  • We plan two/three working days (Thursday 7th – Saturday 9th April 2016) and some cultural program in Moscow (or nearby) on Saturday 9th and/or Sunday 10th April 2016. Details of the program will be announced (see “News” and “Programme”).

    (Note that the deadline of 20 December 2015 is imposed for invitation requests as related paper work may take a substantial time.)
Abstracts and Talks
  • Each speaker is invited to submit an abstract of his/her talk. A collection of abstracts will be published by the beginning of the workshop.
  • The abstracts are invited to be submitted in English as LaTeX files, whose length including figures and references should not exceed 2 pages. LaTeX files to prepare your abstract may be found here: Sample abstract, LaTeX document-class file (right click and choose Save Link As...).
  • Deadline for abstracts is 15 February 2016.
Costs & Accommodation
  • There is no registration fee; tea and coffee will be provided. Lunch each day will be at the participants' expense.
