This proposal is a request for nominal support to bring several US graduate students, young researchers and under-represented minorities to the international Conference on Partial Differential Equations to be held in Novacella, Italy from May 28 June 1, 2014. The COPDE2014 conference is organized jointly by Arizona State University and Munich University of Technology. The conference will be an excellent opportunity for students and young researchers to network with international researchers working on interdisciplinary projects from around the globe. Intellectual Merit Our conference will be an important global event with more than 100 participants representing 25 countries from 5 continents. We have a distinguished list of plenary speakers from the US and Europe. They will deliver a series of state of the art presentations on modern trends in Partial Differential Equations. Although there are other PDE conferences in Europe this year, we believe that none of them has our broad interdisciplinary scientific goals including mathematical aspects of partial differential equations, applied and numerical methods and a variety of applications to natural and biological sciences. The primary goal of this conference is to bring together scientists and mathematicians working in partial differential equations and related fields. Contemporary challenges raised by recent advances in engineering, industry, and bio-technology, will be confronted with state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools in PDE. Including US graduate students, particularly those from underrepresented groups in this field is a top priority. Broader impacts The conference proceedings will be published in IOP=Institute of Physics Conference Series and as a Special Volume of Physica Scripta. In addition to introduction to modern PDEs, our meeting will give a great opportunity for young US participants to establish good working relations in a new interdisciplinary research, including several ongoing collaborations, with our distinguished plenary and invited speakers, all over the world. There is no doubt that COPDE2014 will help our minority students to succeed in graduate school and beyond. This will also be a great opportunity for young American participants to establish initial contacts and cooperation with advanced scientific programs at Munich University of Technology, for instance, a possibility to visit Max Planck institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, a leading scientific center in the world, once again in addition to already existing fruitful collaborations between MUT and ASU.
