Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Vienna

October 17th, 2019 from 13:00 to 17:15 (BZ 2nd floor)

The 1st Austrian Calculus of Variations Day (ACVD) will be held at the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Vienna
from Thursday, October 17th at 13:00 to Friday, October 18th at 12:45

The Austrian Calculus of Variations Day will be an informal workshop, aiming at giving an overview on current research on calculus of variations and optimization in Austria. Participants from all Austrian Universities are welcome to present recent and new results, even not yet published. A few, but strict, rules apply, distinguishing this workshop from existing events in the field, namely:
  • Speakers at ACVD are volunteers from the audience. Provided that they are present throughout the meeting, all participants are invited to talk.
  • Based on the number of speakers the time available will be divided into slots for the talks. The order of the speakers will be determined through random choice, by drawing names out of a hat. Speakers cannot request a specific time to talk.
  • Bring your presentation as a pdf-file on a USB-stick. That will make life/technical support much more relaxed and easier during the conference.
  • Each speaker should introduce themselves, as well as the title and topic, and is expected to leave sufficient time, within the allocated time-slot, for discussion. Speakers have to prepare a talk that can be trimmed to various lengths (from seconds to 20 minutes). For a smooth meeting, the timetable will be strictly enforced.


Registration and participation is free. In order to help with the organisation, we would like to ask participants to
register by Thursday, September 26th 2019 at the latest using this link
. Please indicate in your registration whether you plan to give a presentation, and/or to participate to a conference dinner, if this will be organized.
