About The Conference

It started 60 years ago

The tradition of the Czechoslovak Equadiff dates back to 1962 when Equadiff 1 took place in Prague. Subsequent Czechoslovak Equadiff conferences were held in Prague (1977, 1989, 2001, 2013), Bratislava (1966, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017), and Brno (1972, 1985, 1997, 2009). All proceedings from these conferences are available via Czech Digital Mathematics Library. The Western Equadiff conferences were held in Marseille (1970), Brussels/Louvain-la-Neuve (1973), Firenze (1978), Wurzburg (1982), Xanthi (1987), Barcelona (1991), Lisboa (1995), Berlin (1999), Hasselt (2003), Vienna (2007), Loughborough (2011), Lyon (2015), and Leiden (2019). Equadiff is therefore one of the oldest active series of mathematical conferences in the world. The coming Equadiff in Brno in summer 2022 will be the 15th conference within the Czechoslovak Equadiff series. The conference was rescheduled to the year 2022 from the original date in July 2021 due to an unstable pandemic situation in the world.

The conference Equadiff 15 is organized by joint efforts of the following institutions:
  • Masaryk University (Faculty of Science),
  • Brno University of Technology (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering),
  • Czech Academy of Sciences (Institute of Mathematics),
  • The Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists (Brno branch).
The conference is held under the auspices of the dean of the Faculty of Science of Masaryk University, prof. Tomáš Kašparovský.

We support participants from Ukraine. We encourage researchers and PhD students to contact the organizers regarding the details.

Scientific program

The scientific program of the conference will consist of plenary lectures (50 minutes + 5 minutes for a discussion), invited lectures (35 minutes + 5 minutes for a discussion), minisymposia (including keynote lectures; each of 25 minutes + 5 minutes for a discussion), contributed talks (15 minutes + 5 minutes for a discussion), and posters (the size of the boards for posters is here; please bring your posters with you as we cannot provide a printing service). Except of the plenary lectures, the program will be divided into three parallel sessions:
  • ordinary differential equations (ODE),
  • partial differential equations (PDE),
  • numerical analysis and applications (NAA).
The plenary speakers, invited speakers, and keynote speakers, who will organize invited minisymposia, have been selected by the Scientific Committee of the conference.

In addition to standard scientific program we plan to include a presentation and discussion about the ERC grants in mathematics. The presentation will be delivered on Thursday (14 July 2022) afternoon by an expert from the ERC administration. More details will be provided during the conference in the scientific program.

Technical information:
  • In every lecture room, there is a PC with Win 10. The best option is to have your presentation in PDF on a USB drive.
  • PPT and PPTX formats are also possible. Using your own laptop is possible via HDMI port (full size).
  • ⚠ Apple devices are not supported by the lecture room systems.

#1: Chateau Lednice
Chateau Lednice

Chateau Lednice

Chateau Lednice belongs among the most beautiful complexes in the English Neo-Gothic style in Europe. It is surrounded by large parks (almost 200 ha) in which the visitor finds the Palm House, the Venetian fountain, artificial ruins, minaret and other significant sights built by the aristocratic Liechtenstein family. This area forms a part of the Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.

At the end of the trip, we will make a stop in a wine cellar and taste local products.
#2: Pernštejn Castle
Pernštejn Castle

Pernštejn Castle

This exceptionally well-preserved medieval castle was the seat of the powerful lords of Pernštejn, one of the richest Bohemian families. This castle provides a unique example of the transformation of a Late-Gothic medieval fortress into a luxurious Renaissance seat. A large complex is surrounded on the southern slopes by a park that leads into a forest park and thus forming a unique complex of an aristocratic estate in the countryside. Pernštejn is not only a leading Czech monument, but thanks to its magnificence, also a place used by film crews from all over the world.

Coming back to Brno, a short excursion in the brewery Černá Hora is planned.
#3: The Slav Epic in Moravský Krumlov
The Slav Epic

The Slav Epic

The Slav Epic is a cycle of 20 large canvases painted by the Czech painter, illustrator, and graphic artist Alphonse Mucha between 1910 and 1928. Thanks to his illustrations, advertisements, decorative panels and designs, Mucha achieved global recognition and fame. The Slav Epic, devoted to the the mythology and history of Czechs and other Slav nations, is considered to be his most important work. It is now on display in the castle Moravský Krumlov near Brno.

Coming back to Brno, a short excursion in the brewery Dalešice is planned.
#4: Villa Tugendhat and Brno underground
Villa Tugendhat

Brno underground

Villa Tugendhat was built in 1929–1930 for Greta and Fritz Tugendhat to a design by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The villa soon became an icon of modern architecture in Europe, especially for its revolutionary use of space and industrial building materials. Also, its history is at least as fascinating as its cultural significance. Villa Tugendhat was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2001.

Brno underground involves several mysterious tours under the historical centre of the city such as the Labyrinth Under the Vegetable Market, the Mintmaster’s Cellar, or the Ossuary at the Church of St. James.
#5: Špilberk Castle and Brno underground
Špilberk Castle

Brno underground

Špilberk Castle has dominated the skyline of Brno since the mid-13th century. In history of Brno, it provided not only the symbol of the safety and protection, but there also had been times when the fortress inspired fear and represented oppression for the citizens of the city. A sightseeing tour involves Casemates-prison, historical fortifications and lookout tower.

Brno underground involves several mysterious tours under the historical centre of the city such as the Labyrinth Under the Vegetable Market, the Mintmaster’s Cellar, or the Ossuary at the Church of St. James.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will be held in the Brewery house Poupě (Dominikánská 342, Brno; see the map) on Thursday (July 14, 2022) at 19 o'clock. Buffet-style dinner with many choices is planned. This dinner is not included in the conference package and its price is 35 EUR or 800 CZK (it includes a buffet, non-alcoholic drinks, beers, and wine).

How to get there

Here are some tips for the public transport in Brno

For the transport from the main train or bus station to a hotel you can use a taxi, which should be in front of the main station (e.g., City taxi Brno; the usual price is about 200 CZK). Alternatively, you can use public transport. Details (including the transport from hotels to the conference venue) are available here or consult the webpage of IDOS.

For every trip, you need a ticket. Usually, it is possible to buy it at newsstands or you can use your debit/credit card in the marking machine inside the tram or trolleybus (see https://pipniajed.cz/en.html). Eventually, you can buy it at a yellow ticket machine located nearby some stops. For a short trip, you can use the 15-minute tickets, which costs 20 CZK (it is suitable for the trip from the Main train station to Hotel Continental or Hotel Passage). For longer trips, you need the 60-minute ticket, which costs 25 CZK. After boarding a tram or trolleybus, the ticket has to be marked in a machine (only one time during its validity), which is somewhere near the doors.

After the registration (as a part of the registration package), every participant gets a 5-day ticket.

If you need to refresh yourself on a city tour, you can try ice cream from Božský kopeček ("Heavenly Scoop"). It is vegan gelato served from like tuk-tuk cars mostly on Náměstí svobody, Zelný trh and Moravské náměstí. If you don't mind standing in the queues, then you need to try an ice cream from Ještě jednu on Minoritská.

Beer

And if you prefer a cocktail with your food then Element on Běhounská is the perfect place.
