The International Society for Analysis, its Applications and Computation (ISAAC) is a non-profit organization established in 1994 to promote and advance analysis, its applications, and its interaction with computation. Analysis is understood here in the best sense of the word, including differential equations, integral equations, functional analysis, and function theory.

It is imagined that within ISAAC certain special interests groups will exist which organize workshops and mini-symposia at the ISAAC meetings. These special interests groups are to operate independently and to have representation on the ISAAC Board.

With this objective, international meetings shall be organized by ISAAC for the presentation and discussion of research on analysis in the above context. ISAAC will also support, from time to time, other activities, such as summer schools and exchange of scientists.

Applications of dynamical systems theory in biology

Code: adst
Torsten Lindström, Linnaeus University, Sweden, e-mail: torsten.lindstrom@lnu.se
Amira Asta
Lucia Tamburino

Description: In this session we accept primarily talks that are using dynamical systems theory in order to analyze various models that arise in biological applications. The models analyzed may be mechanistically formulated, fitted to data, deterministic, or stochastic. Various relations between such models that arise in different modeling approaches and under different simplifying assumptions can be analyzed. Possible biological applications can include ecology, epidemiology, pharmacokinetics, evolution, physiology, pattern formation, and resource distribution, but are not limited to these topics. A part of the session is reserved for stakeholders with rich contact networks outside academia.

Approximation Theory and Special Functions - 4th Series

Description: This special session is the fourth edition of a series of mini-symposia which bring together researchers from all areas Approximation Theory and Special Functions. The first one was organized within the international conference ICNAAM 2013 in Greece, the second one in MDS 2014 in Bulgaria, and the third one in ETAMM 2016 in France.

Nacira Agram, University of Oslo,Norway, e-mail: naciraa@math.uio.no
Magnus Perninge, Linnaeus University, Sweden, e-mail: magnus.perninge@lnu.se

Description: In recent years there has been an increasing interest in theory of backward equations, their numerical approximations and applications, in particular in stochastic control and finance. A main source for the development of the theory of backward stochastic differential equations is for stochastic control problems where the solutions may appear in adjoint equations. In finance, the option prices and their related hedging portfolios are naturally described by stochastic backward equations. Numerical solutions of backward equations are not trivial extensions of numerical solutions for forward equations but are instead typically of implicit type involving conditional expectations needed to approximate, and are therefore by themselves stimulating to study. In this session we accept primarily talks that are focused on theory of backward equations, their numerical approximations and applications.

Complex analysis and convex optimization and their applications in wave physics

Code: caco

Sven Nordebo, Linnaeus University, Sweden, e-mail: sven.nordebo@lnu.se
Yevhen Ivanenko, Linnaeus University, Sweden, e-mail: yevhen.ivanenko@lnu.se

Description: This session focus primarily on theory of complex analysis and convex optimization and their applications in wave physics. Complex analysis in one or several variables is considered as well as convex or non-convex optimization. Typical research areas include the various representation theorems and moment problems involving Herglotz-Nevanlinna and Stieltjes functions and their applications to linear, time translational invariant, causal, and passive systems to derive performance bounds in wave physics. Optimization can be used to analyze the realizability of performance bounds, and for automated design of acoustic or electromagnetic structures. Other research areas involving complex analysis and convex or non-convex optimization are also highly appreciated.

Description: Functional analytic methods serve to find existence, uniqueness, spectral results for initial and boundary value problems for (in particular nonlinear ordinary and partial) differential equations. Complex and functional analytic methods are used to find explicit solutions and solvablity conditions for complex differential equations. Related topics are integral and integro-differential equations. Applications are appearing e.g. in mathematical physics, mathematical biology, economy.

Description: The purpose of the special session on "fixed point theory and its applications" is to bring together leading experts and researchers in fixed point theory and to assess new developments, ideas and methods in this important and dynamic field. As it is expected, several daily problems can be considered as a fixed point problem. For this reason, this theory has a wide application potential. For example, there is a very close relation between the stability theory (Ulam-Hyres type) and fixed point theory. A special emphasis will be put on applications in related areas, as well as other sciences, such as the natural sciences, medicine, economics and engineering.

To reach Växjö

It is expected that for most of the participants outside Scandinavia, the most convenient way to reach Växjö is to take a flight to Copenhagen airport (Kastrup), and then continue with a direct train from the airport to Växjö. It takes around two and half hours to go from the airport to Växjö.

In the case you enter Sweden from the east (Finland, Russia, China and Japan) it might also be convenient to take a flight to Stockholm airport (Arlanda), and then continue with a domestic flight to Växjö, or by trains.

To reach campus

Bus to campus
The best way to reach campus is to take the bus no. 3 direction "Universitetet". Our recommendation is to buy "Visitors ticket". Then you can travel all over Växjö city and you can choose between a ticket valid during 24 or 72 hours. The ticket can be purchased on board at bus or at Customer center at Växjö railway station. If you want to pay on the bus we suggest you use your credit card. If you pay with cash there is an extra fee. The price varies between 67 SEK-144 SEK depending if you choose 24 hours or 72 or hours and your age. This information and more you will find at Länstrafiken Kronoberg

By bike
Many hotels have a bicycle if you would prefer that. It takes about 20 minutes by bike from city center to Linnaeus University.

Map of Campus in Växjö: Here you find a map over Campus in Växjö (page 2 English)

Transport and attractions in Växjö

We have made a map of Växjö city that points out the most important places for the ISAAC conference.

Offical visitors guide for Växjö

Our suggestions
Växjö is the very heart of southern Sweden – in the middle of Småland. There is a lot to see, experience, and do here – local handicraft, unique shops and world-class restaurants. If you just want to pick three things to see and do during your visit, we recommend you The Swedish Glass Museum, the House of Emigrants and the steamboat "Thor".

More about the steamboat "Thor", The Swedish Glass Museum and the House of Emigrants 

The Swedish Glass Museum
The House of Emigrants 
Steamboat "Thor"
To reach the steamboat, take bus no. 1 from bus station direction "Kronobergs Slottsruin". The bus ride takes about 30 minutes.
We might be able to pre-book trips for ISAAC. More information will come. 

Kosta Boda and the "Kingdom of Chrystal"
During the conference we have arranged an excursion to Kosta Boda and "Hyttsill". In the registrationform you can register for the excursion.


Awards will be presented to young scientists of age below or equal to 40 at the time of the congress for particular merits in analysis, its applications and computation.

Candidates for the awards may be nominated especially by ISAAC Board Members and Session Organizers, but also may apply by themselves. Nominations and applications should be sent before 30 April, 2017 to: Luigi Rodino, President, ISAAC, at e-mail: luigi.rodino@unito.it
An Award Committee will select the awardees. Awards will only be given to participants. In the case a prize winner will not be able to participate, she/he will get only the award document but no corresponding prize.


Springer/Birkhäuser will publish the proceedings of the 11th ISAAC 2017. The texts of the communications, after the referee process, will be published in a volume of the Birkhäuser series "Trends in Mathematics, Research Perspectives". Plenary lectures will be published in a volume of the "Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics".
