This is a conference in honor of Boris G. Konopelchenko's 70th birthday, where his many contributions to all the above fields will be celebrated.

Besides the birthday celebrations, special sessions will take place to celebrate the anniversaries of two milestones of the Theory of Integrable Systems:

  • 50 years since the publication of P. Lax's paper Integrals of nonlinear equations of evolution and solitary waves (Comm. Pure Applied Math., 21, 467 (1968));
  • 40 years since the publication of F. Magri's paper A simple model of the integrable Hamiltonian system (J. Math. Phys. 19, 1156, (1978))

There will only be invited talks, while the participation is free to anybody. There is no registration fee, but we regret that no financial support is available.

Prospective participants are kindly asked to register in advance here, possibly by 31st July 2018.
