November 7th - November 8th, 2024

The 4th Austrian Calculus of Variations Day (ACVD) will be held at the University of Innsbruck
from Thursday, November 7th, 2024
to Friday, November 8th, 2024
(the exact start and end times will be announced soon).

The Austrian Calculus of Variations Day, already at its fourth edition, is an informal workshop, aiming at giving an overview on current research on calculus of variations and optimization in Austria. Participants from all Austrian research institutions are welcome to present recent and new results, even not yet published.

The workshop will feature two invited talks, given by and contributed talks by any participant from Austrian research institutions, willing to present recent results.

A few, but strict, rules apply to all contributed talks, 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 contributed talks, all of the same length. 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. Please be aware of the fact that
    the meeting room has no blackboard
  • Speakers should introduce themselves, as well as the title and topic, and are expected to leave sufficient time, within their 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 organization, we would like to ask participants to
register by Wednesday, October 23th, 2024 at the latest using this link
. Please indicate in your registration whether you plan to give a presentation, and/or to participate to the conference dinner.

The social dinner will tentatively take place on Thursday, November 7th; details will be posted soon at this link.

This workshop is supported by the Österreichische Mathematische Gesellschaft.
