In March 2020, during the first Spanish lockout due to the Covid19 pandemic, the Organizing and Scientific Committees of HYP2020 decided to postptone the conference to June 28-July 2, 2021, hoping that the situation will be safe enough by then to organize an in person event in Málaga. Unfortunately, the currents circumstances do not guarantee that this will be the case. Therefore we have made the following decisions:

  • An online HYP2020/21 day will take place in July 2, 2021. This event will include the talks of the first James Glimm Lecturer, Constantine Dafermos (Brown University), and the first Peter Lax Awardee, Jacob Bedrossian (University of Maryland). The program will be completed with 2 talks given by some of the invited speakers of Hyp2020.
  • HYP2022 will take place as an in person conference in Málaga in June 20-24, 2022. The conference will include the talks of the second James Glimm Lecturer and Peter Lax Awardee.

Please, save the dates! The details of the programs, registration procedures, important dates, etc. will be given through this web page.

We sincerely hope that it will be possible to have a normal and safe Conference in June 2022 and we apologize for any inconvenience.

The Organizing Committee remains at your disposal.

XVIII International Conference on Hyperbolic Problems
Theory, Numerics, Applications
June 22-26, 2020
Málaga, Spain

The objective of the conference is to bring together scientists with interests in the theoretical, applied, and computational aspects of hyperbolic partial differential equations (systems of hyperbolic conservation laws, wave equations, etc.) and of related mathematical models (PDEs of mixed type, kinetic equations, nonlocal or/and discrete models, etc.).

The conference was first held 1986 in St. Etienne (France) and has been organized since then biennially at different locations. The last few meetings were held at:  2018 Penn State (U.S.A.)2016 Aachen (Germany)2014 Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)2012 Padua (Italy)2010 Beijing (China)2008 College Park (U.S.A.)2006 Lyon (France).

The conference consists of 45-minute plenary lectures and 45-minute invited lectures held in parallel, and of sessions of 20-minute contributed talks on various topics related to hyperbolic equations.

As it has been done in the past, special effort will be made to provide partial funding to young scientists to enable them to attend the conference.
