image Starting from 2000, three conferences on multi-scale methods in science and technology have been successfully organized in Dubrovnik in cooperation with Andro Mikeliċ. Their goal was to bring together the mathematicians working on the multi-scale techniques (asymptotic analysis, homogenization, singular perturbation, …) and experts from the applied sciences, who need these techniques in modeling, numerical simulations and optimization of real systems. These events provided a high potential and the proper atmosphere for the exchange of information, results and ideas, for discussions and cooperation on the front of research. Andro Mikeliċ, a pioneer in multi-scale analysis and its applications and an inspiring partner, contributed substantially to this success.

Sadly, Andro has passed away in 2020 and it is appropriate to dedicate to his memory this Dubrovnik conference, pursuing the main goal which he had chosen for his own research:

The mathematical rigorous derivation of effective model systems for processes in complex media using multi-scale methods, starting from models based on first principles.

The topics of this conference include on the theoretical side among others:

The following selected application areas will provide examples to be presented and discussed in the conference:

Invited speakers (tentative)

The conference will take place at the CAAS building in Dubrovnik, situated few hundred meters from the old walled city. The accomodation for the participants is available at the dormitory of CAAS or in some of the many hotels in Dubrovnik. The first lecture starts on Tuesday, March 19 in the morning, while the lectures finish on Friday March 22.
