38th Southeastern-Atlantic Regional Conference on Differential Equations (SEARCDE)

October 6-7, 2018

SEARCDE promotes research and education in the field of differential equations by bringing together beginning and established researchers. From its origin in 1981 at Virginia Tech, the conference has rotated among the institutions in the southeast region of the United States. The conference represents diversity in the theory, applications, modeling and scientific computations of differential equations including PDEs arising from physical sciences, geophysical sciences, engineering, biological sciences, medical sciences, business, economics and social sciences.

The primary focus of the 38th SEARCDE will be on nonlinearity in fluids, reaction-diffusion models arising in ecology, and computational methods. The conference will feature plenary talks and invited talks by internationally renowned experts, contributed talks by recent Ph.D.’s and graduate students, and an open discussion forum on the existing and new open problems in the field of differential equations. Graduate students and recent Ph.D. recipients whose research interests are closely related to these topics will greatly benefit from this conference.
