"Advances in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics"

School of Mathematics, Alan Turing Building, University of Manchester, UK, 5th-7th June 2013

University of Manchester

Thanks to the support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) (via grant EP/H050779/1) a workshop solely devoted to recent advances in applied mathematics and mechanics will be held from 5th-7th June 2013 in the home of the School of Mathematics, the Alan Turing Building, at the University of Manchester. The meeting will take advantage of the excellent facilities available in the School, as part of the Manchester Institute for Mathematical Sciences (MIMS).

The emphasis of the workshop will be new methods in applied mathematics and applications in mechanics. Topics of the workshop will be research in continuum mechanics including linear and nonlinear elasticity, fluid dynamics and wave propagation problems with applications in biomechanics, materials science, engineering and industry.

There is no registration fee to attend the event but if you would like to attend please email

Tea, coffee and lunches will be provided at the meeting. However, note that evening meals will not be provided. We anticipate that we will have a workshop style banquet on the evening of Thursday 6th June at a cost of around £35 per person (Excluding alcohol) payable on registration. Exact numbers will be determined nearer the time.


Directions to Manchester and the School of Mathematics can be found here. The Alan Turing Building is number 46 on the campus map.

Manchester airport is an international airport serving a large number of carriers around the globe. If flying from abroad it is likely that you will be able to find a flight to Manchester. The airport is close to the city. There are frequent trains into the city centre (Piccadilly station) or alternatively a taxi will take about 25 minutes and cost about £20.
