Dolomites poster, 1938

University of Verona at Alba di Canazei

General info

DRWA18 is organized by the Department of Mathematics of the Universities of Padova and Torino and the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona. It aims to provide a meeting point and a forum for researchers in approximation theory and its applications, with the formula of open lectures + invited working groups and a poster session. The site, which has several rooms with white-board and PC projector and a computing laboratory with 27 PCs connected to the web, can host up to 5-6 working groups. There will be at disposal also a common room for scientific discussions among the participants to the tutorial who are not in a specific working group (see also the previous editions DRWA07, DRWA08, DRWA10, DRWA11, DRWA13,DRWA14, DRWA15, DRWA17). Please contact soon the organizers if you wish to arrange a working group.

The workshop will be held in Alba di Canazei, Val di Fassa (Trento), Italy.

Venue: University of Verona, via de Sorapera, 25-27, 38030 Alba di Canazei (TN).

Registration fee (to be paid cash onsite): Regular 150 euros; BSc/MSc/PhD Students and Post-Docs 100 euros


Lecturer: Bernard Haasdonk (Stuttgart)

Tutorial: Reduced Basis Methods.
