October 23–25, 2014
Mississippi State University
Starkville, MS

The Tenth Mississippi State Conference on Differential Equations and Computational Simulations will be held from October 23 to 25, 2014, at Mississippi State University. This interdisciplinary conference will provide a joint forum in which mathematicians, scientists, and engineers from industries, federal laboratories, and academia can exchange research and development ideas. An overall goal of this conference is to promote research and education in mathematical and computational analysis of theoretical and applied differential equations. In addition to the ten principal lectures, there will be sessions for 20-minute contributed talks. This conference is dedicated to Ratnasingham Shivaji in celebration of his 60th birthday, his outstanding contributions to differential equations, and his service to Mississippi State University.

Conference participants are encouraged to submit full length manuscripts after the conference. Reviewed manuscripts will be published as a special issue of the Electronic Journal of Differential Equations.

The deadline for pre-registration and abstract submission is September 5, 2014.

Funding for travel, provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation, is available to help support graduate students/recent PhDs with expenses.
