This scientific program is proposed to highlight the recent advances and new perspectives in developing, analyzing, and applying modern numerical methods for nonlinear hyperbolic PDEs. The program will serve as a forum for researchers at different stages of their careers and from many countries around the world to provide a unique opportunity for in-depth technical discussions, exchange of ideas, identify “big” problems in application areas that require innovative mathematical and numerical approaches, and foster new collaborations.

The scientific program will feature three thematic workshops, a thematic spring school, and 19 mini-courses, which will be taught during Spring 2024 as a part of the special program.

The workshop and spring school topics are:

  • Opening Workshop: Recent Advances in Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws, December 9-15, 2023
  • Workshop II: Development of High-Order Methods for Hyperbolic PDEs, March 15-19, 2024
  • Spring School: Numerical Methods for Shallow Water Models, May 6-10, 2024
  • Workshop III: Numerical Methods for Shallow Water Models, May 11-15, 2024

  • This three-month program is expected to be attended by long- and short-term visitors and workshop and spring school participants (approximately 65 invited participants). In addition, junior researchers who want to participate in the program, are welcome to apply. The program will provide graduate students, postdocs, and early-career professors with the opportunity to expose their research to senior members of the community.

  • Application and Contact

    Junior researchers (PhD students, postdocs, and junior faculty) who are interested in becoming core junior participants of the Special Program are welcome to apply by sending their CV and a recommendation letter directly to Alexander Kurganov at The applications are subject to approval by the organizers.

    Junior core participants are expected to stay at Shenzhen International Center for Mathematics for the entire duration of the program (or for at least one month period) and will be provided with an office space. The organizers will contribute toward travel and local (housing, meals) expenses of junior core participants.

    For any inquiries about the program, please e-mail to Alexander Kurganov at
