Description of Proposed Conference
During June 23-29, 2003, the Mathematical Institute of Silesian University at Opava will host the Summer Symposium in Real Analysis XXVII. The nature of current work in real analysis is driven by the exchange of ideas generated by real analysts rooted in one subdiscipline of real analysis but with wide ranging interests. This Symposium will highlight lectures by both leading experts and energetic new researchers. Specifically, Summer Symposium XXVII will emphasize recent important work in harmonic analysis, integration theory and a solution of the celebrated Gradient Problem as well as some of the achievements of younger mathematicians in real analysis. In addition, we will provide a vibrant forum for the discussion of research problems, and allot prime speaking time to recent doctoral recipients.
The four principal speakers have been invited and at the time of this submission, all have tentatively accepted our invitation. A brief description of each speaker follows.
The schedule includes hour-long lectures by the principal speakers, several invited twenty-minute presentations, and a directed and refereed research problem session. Time in the program has been reserved for young researchers, and the research problem session has been designed to entice new people to work in developing areas.
Research at the Symposium
The symposium program will include a directed research problem session. Complementary to the goals of the research problem session is our desire to create an atmosphere that is conductive to people initiating collaborations and actively working on research problems. To be successful we must set aside time when participants can feel free to work. A too full schedule can be a severe hindrance to the type of working atmosphere we wish to create. As such, we plan to set aside at least two hours each early afternoon when no formal activities are scheduled.
We anticipate that Symposium XXVII will attract a broad international audience of about seventy participants from North and South America, Russia, Georgia, Japan, Taiwan, China, India and many European countries. We have set aside at least ten of the twenty-minute presentations for first or second year doctoral recipients. Michigan State University Press will publish the proceedings of Symposium XXVII as a separate volume of the Real Analysis Exchange.
