with a special
The workshop organized within the European Research Training Network ``Evolution Equations for Deterministic and Stochastic Systems'', focuses on stochastic differential equations in a wider sense, and in particular on strong and weak solutions of forward as well as backward stochastic differential equations in finite and infinite dimensions.
The participants are expected to arrive on Monday, 28 March, in the afternoon. The talks will start on Tuesday morning and end on Friday, 1 April, departure day is Saturday, 2 April. The Thursday afternoon, 31 March, is reserved for a special session in honor of the 60th anniversary of Hans-Jürgen Engelbert; this special session will be closed by a dinner which will be served in one of Jena's historic restaurants.
We plan talks of about one hour length excluding 5 - 10 minutes for discussion. The participants are kindly asked to send the title of their talks to one of the organisators of the workshop before the end of February.
The workshop itself will be held in the main building of the University of Jena which is located in the heart of the city. Of course we organise accommodation in hotels nearby, for example in the hotel "Schwarzer Bär", a traditional hotel in the old town.
