**An opportunity for Graduate Students and Postdocs in Canada**

The 2012 Brisbane Winter School on Geometric Partial Differential Equations

The Winter School will be held at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia July 2nd to July 13th. Designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, the programme will focus on recent progress in
non-linear partial differential equations and their applications,
emphasizing three interlocking themes:

*Nonlinear elliptic equations and their applications to geometry
and optimal transportation

*Geometric flows and applications

*Harmonic maps and applications

The first week will be comprised of introductory lecture courses, while
the second week will focus on key topics in recent research and contemporary applications. These lectures will be presented by world
leaders in the area of Geometric Partial Differential Equations, including:

Robert McCann (Toronto, Canada),
Neil Trudinger (ANU, Australia),
Xu-Jia Wang (ANU, Australia).
Richard Schoen (Stanford, USA),
Gang Tian (Princeton, USA and Beijing, China),
Gerhard Huisken (Max Planck, Germany),
James Sethian (USA)
Ben Andrews (ANU, Australia)
Tristan Rivière (ETH-Zurich, Switzerland)
Michael Struwe  (ETH-Zurich, Switzerland)
Min-Chun Hong (UQ, Australia)
