The program will consist of two parts.

First part (Agora building), June 16, 2012

The first part of the summer school consists of two lectures delivered by two top researchers. The first part is free of charge and the lunch is included.


Optimal Control of Partial Differential Equations

Prof. Dr. Ronald W. Hoppe

Abstract: We consider control and state constrained optimal control problems for sec- ond order elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations featuring both distributed and boundary control. The first part of the two lectures is de- voted to the analysis of the control problems with emphasis on existence and uniqueness results as well as the derivation of first order necessary optimality conditions. The second part is concerned with adaptive finite element approx- imations based on a posteriori error estimators that can be derived by the method of dual weighted residuals.


Mixed FE methods on polyhedral meshes

Prof. Dr. Yuri Kuznetsov

Abstract: TBD

Second part (Konnevesi), August 2-4, 2012

Transportation to Konnevesi

For those needing the transportation to Konnevesi research station:
We will organize a bus transport on 1.8. (Wednesday) evening approximately 20 pm. Majority of guests arrive to Jyväskylä during the afternoon by train or to the local airport. We will pick you up and join all together to some properly equipped place in the city center to get to know each others and to wait for the bus. However, those who arrive in a peculiar time, e.g., middle of the night or other day, need not to be worried either, we will organize a taxi transport from the airport or the train station directly. Most importantly, as soon as you known your arrival schedule, please inform Ms. Svetlana Matsulevits to

The program consists of 20 min presentations (15 min talk and 5 min discussion) by young scientists, and 50 min lectures by invited lecturers.

Key-note lectures delivered by leading experts in the area are intended to give an overview of the main achievements, results, and open questions in the certain parts of applied analysis related to PDEs. Junior scientists present their results in contributed talks which are discussed in an open and friendly atmosphere. The event includes informal discussions, as well as sportive and cultural events.

Detailed program of the second part will be available later.
