Mathematical Workshops and Seminars


Sapporo Symposium on Partial Differential Equations

The purpose of this symposium is to promote various areas of partial differential equation so that people can understand the ideas of these fields. For this reason, we have prepared about six survey-type lectures and have taken a long discussion time after the lectures. The course of the lecture depends on the members’ interests of the Department, but has been carefully selected so that the symposium does not become a seminar for a particular research group.

The symposium is held every year to introduce the latest developments in PDEs that are of great interest regardless of the method of a particular research group. This symposium was first held in 1975 by Prof. Taira SHIROTA. Prof. Koji KUBOTA and Prof. Rentaro AGEMI contributed greatly to the symposium. As a result of their efforts, the Sapporo Symposium on Partial Differential Equations has been counted as one of the major symposiums on partial differential equations in Japan since the late 1980s. This symposium has become an international symposium since the mid-1990s thanks to the efforts of Prof. Tohru OZAWA and Prof. Yoshikazu GIGA.

Northeastern Symposium on Mathematical Analysis

This is an international symposium on Mathematical Analysis sponsored by Tohoku University and Hokkaido University. Comprehensive lectures and the latest topics in mathematical analysis are discussed in the lecture. In addition, lectures and poster sessions are given by graduate students of both universities. The symposium is open to the public and brings together researchers from other regions as well as researchers from the Tohoku and Hokkaido regions, contributing to the promotion of research activities in both regions.

The 1st symposium was held in Sapporo Tenjinyama Guest House in February 2000. The second symposium was held at Tohoku University in February 2001. The symposium are held in Hokkaido or in Sendai usually in February for two days. The symposium was started with a proposal from Prof. Izumi TAKAGI at Tohoku University. The first workshop was organized by Prof. Izumi TAKAGI and Prof. Yoshikazu GIGA at Hokkaido University.

Mathematics Conference for Young Researchers

This is a research meeting organized and operated by graduate students at our department. The aim is to encourage young researchers in various fields related to mathematics to discover new research themes as well as expand their own research, and expand human networks.
