ICTT 2015 - 24TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TRANSPORT THEORY

SEPTEMBER 7 - 11, 2015 TAORMINA - SICILY, ITALY

Summary

The 24th International Conference on Transport Theory (ICTT-24) will be held in Taormina (Italy). The sessions will take place at Hotel Villa Diodoro and foresee both oral and poster presentations.

Taormina is a very popular holiday town on a cliff by the sea on the east coast of the island of Sicily, Italy, about halfway between Catania and Messina. As soon as you arrive in Taormina, you will feel the magical, mythical atmosphere spread all around which has enchanted visitors from all over the world for years and years. Settled on a hill of the Monte Tauro, Taormina dominates two grand, sweeping bays below and on the southern side, the top of Mount Etna, the european highest active volcano, often capped with snow, offering to the visitors a breath-taking, dramatic and memorable view. In September Taormina hosts several musical and art international events.

Following the tradition of a biennial series affectionately known as the “Blacksburg Meeting”, the conference aims to bring together researchers from the international mathematics, physical and engineering communities to present recent developments in modelling, analytical and computational methods for the transport equations arising in several field of interest.

Satellite events will be organized for participants and accompanying persons.

Topics covered will include but are not restricted to:

  • Transport of neutrons/reactor physics
  • Transport of charged particles/semiconductors
  • Plasma physics
  • Radiative transfer
  • Quantum transport
  • Kinetic theory of classical particles/continuum derived models
  • Kinetic models in bio and social sciences
