Early and mid-career researchers meet at the University of Sydney Centre in China to discuss Geometric and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

July 6, 2018

The University of Sydney Centre in China was host to the Early-/Mid-Career Researchers (EMCR) Forum on Geometric and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations on July 4, 2018. At this Forum, 5 Researchers from Shanghai Maritime University, Beihang University, Fudan University, Xiamen University and Wuhan University shared their presentations with participants for a deeper communication on specialized topics such as comparison theorems for integral Bakry-Emery curvature bounds, Kähler-Ricci flow on Fano bundles, Regularity and uniqueness of the solutions of some degenerate Monge-Ampère equations, Ricci flow on complete manifolds and applications, on the extension of the Ricci Bourguignon flow etc. The forum provided researchers and participants an opportunity to exchange ideas, foster and enhance collaborations.

This forum is part of the International Conference on Geometric and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations organized jointly by the University of Sydney and Soochow University on 2-6 Jul 2018, which brings together the experts in the fields of geometric and nonlinear PDEs from top-ranking universities around the Pacific – Australia, China and USA.

The Centre is a bridge between the University of Sydney and counterparts in China, supporting researchers to connect and identify collaborations. The partnership with Soochow University was reinforced by a strategic cooperation MOU signed by both sides in December 2017 providing a solid and comprehensive basis for individual academic links.

Supporting and co-organizing conferences, forums, seminars and workshops is one of the core functions of the University of Sydney Centre in China. The Centre in China has provided facilities and services for up to 30 conferences, seminars and workshops since its launch at the end of 2016, becoming an important option for University of Sydney staff to hold functions, making the Centre an ideal place for international intellectual exchange.
