The conference Waves in Science and Engineering 2016 will be held on August 22-26 (arrival date: August 21, departure date: August 27) at the Queretaro campus of the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (in Spanish: Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politécnico Nacional or simply CINVESTAV http://qro.cinvestav.mx/). It is intended to bring together experts from different fields in the general area of classical wave theory, analysis, differential equations and applications, including acoustic, electromagnetic, and elastic wave propagation. The mathematical and numerical modeling procedures in these fields contribute to a considerable number of applied physical and engineering problems, over a large range of length scales.
Among these are problems in sonar, radar, medical imaging, detection, materials, and wave interactions with surfaces and obstacles.
The conference will cover many of the current mathematical and numerical techniques that are applied across disciplines. Mathematicians, physicists, and engineers of varying backgrounds and occupations will present recent developments in wave phenomena in science and enginering.
