Description of the Conference:

The International Workshop on Nonlinear and Modern Mathematical Physics is scheduled to be held in Shihezi University, Shihezi, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, People's Republic of China during July 15 through July 21, 2009. The workshop is generously sponsored by Shihezi University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps., the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the University of South Florida and the China Association for Science and Technology.

The primary goals of the workshop are to promote and encourage cooperation, understanding and collaboration in the nonlinear mathematical physics community and to bring together mathematicians and physicists that attempt to understand nonlinear phenomena and solve nonlinear problems. The workshop aims to survey recent advances on a wide range of topics of current interest in nonlinear and modern mathematical physics including: integrable and near-integrable equations, physical and engineering applications such as nonlinear optics, Bose-Einstein condensates and fluid dynamics, and numerical aspects of nonlinear phenomena. The workshop will provide a forum for scientists and researchers worldwide to present their latest results and a means to discuss their recent research with each other. Themes of this workshop include (but are not limited to):
