  • Workshop - Long time dynamics and regularity for hydrodynamical systems
    Mar 11, 2015 to Mar 13, 2015

    Nantes, from March 11th to March 13th

    Organization board: Frédéric Bernicot, Vincent Duchêne

    Although the equations for fluid motion are hundreds of years old, and despite a strong and continuous interest of the scientific community in their study, much remains to be understood. This is not saying that no progress has been made! On the contrary, the study of hydrodynamical systems is a good example of a field where the development of new mathematical tools have accompanied (and sometimes have been developped for) a deeper comprehension of the multiple and complex phenomena hiding behind these seemingly simple sets of equations.

    As for our workshop, the participants will be several of the main contributors to the following topics:

    • Local/Global well-posedness results for (nonlinear) PDEs modeling hydrodynamical systems

    • Local/Global inviscid limit

    • Stability and instability of nonlinear waves

    • Mathematical analysis of free-surface fluids

    The Registration webpage will be open until February 15. A precise schedule will be updated as soon as possible, at the moment the scientific program is planned to begin on March 11 at 11h00 a.m.

  • Meeting - Young French Applied Mathematicians Meeting
    Mar 30, 2015 to Apr 1, 2015

    Saint Brévin, from March 30th to April 1st

    Organization board: Antoine Benoit, Jean-François Coulombel, Vincent Duchêne, Damien Gobin, Frédéric Hérau, Hélène Hivert, Salomé Oudet, Virgile Robbe, Ophélie Rouby, Valentin Samoyeau

    Scientific board: Sylvie Benzoni, Christophe Besse, Franck Boyer, David Lannes, Jérôme Le Rousseau, Eric Lombardi, Frédéric Rousset

    This meeting follows the so-called DYNAMO workshops that have been held in Rennes in 2010, in Lyon in 2011 and in Orléans in 2013, and the previous Journées JEF that have taken place in Fréjus in 2014. The aim of the meeting is to give the opportunity to some young researchers to present their doctoral or post-doctoral research to a wide audience coming from several French mathematics departments. The speakers are selected by the scientific committee. The topics of the meeting cover theoretical aspects of PDE analysis and mathematical physics, as well as mathematical modeling and numerical analysis.

    The meeting is supported by the GDR CNRS Analysis of partial differential equations.

    The meeting will start on March 30th in the afternoon and end on April 1st at lunch.

    Registration is open until March 8th.

How to come to Rennes

If you arrive in Paris either by plane or train, the simplest is to use the french high-speed train (TGV) to go to Rennes (2h15' from Montparnasse station, 3h from the Airport station).

For those landing at Charles-de-Gaulle airport, you may also use a connecting flight to Rennes.

How to reach your accomodation place

To go to the Adagio hotel from the railway station: take the subway (direction J.F. Kennedy) from station "Gares" to station "Saint-Anne", and then walk on "rue d'Antrain" street (see the map below) from "Place Saint-Anne" to the hotel.

To go to Résidence universitaire from the railway station: take bus n°1 (direction Cesson-Sévigné) from stop "Gares" to stop "Mirabeau". Then walk down to builiding D (see the map below).

How to come to the conference place

The conference will take place in amphitheater N of ESIR building (ESIR=école supérieure d'ingénieurs de Rennes) on Beaulieu Campus (campus map).

From the Adagio hotel: take bus n°31 (direction "Beaulieu Chimie") from the stop "Hôtel Dieu" to the stop "Beaulieu Chimie" . You then have to walk to ESIR building (see the map below).

From Résidence universitaire: you can walk to ESIR building (see the map below).

From the railway station: take the subway (direction J.F. Kennedy) and stop at "Republique". Then take bus n°4 (direction Beaulieu Atalante) and stop at "Beaulieu Chimie". You then have to walk to ESIR building (see the map below).

Timetables, PDF maps of the bus lines are available on the Star website (only in french sorry).

You will find information on the conference place, bus stops, restaurants etc. on the annotated map below.
