6th Workshop on Fourier Analysis and Related Fields

First Announcement

The Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Faculty of Sciences, University of Pécs announces the 6th Workshop on Fourier Analysis and Related Fields, Pécs, Hungary, 24-31 August 2017.

This workshop is a continuation of the series of "Fourier workshops" held at the Renyi Institute in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2015. The workshop focuses on Fourier analysis and its applications in various branches of mathematics, such as additive combinatorics, number theory and mathematical analysis.

The organizing committee is: Tímea Eisner, Marcel Gaál, Ágota G. Horváth, Balázs Király, Béla Nagy, Margit Pap (co-chair), Viktor Rébay, Szilárd Révész (chairman), Ilona Simon (secretary), Tamás Titkos, László Tóth, Dániel Virosztek

Please advertise this workshop among your colleagues, students or other potential participants.

The Organizing Committee would like to call your attention to the following points and kindly asks you to fill out the attached questionnaire.
  1. The participants are expected to arrive in the afternoon of August 24th and to leave in the morning of August 31st.

  7. Social events: A preliminary abstract book can be found on our website, in which you can find some information on the social events, meals, technicalities. We plan several social events: a welcome dinner, an excursion with wine tasting in Villány, a banquet and an optional afternoon for free time, museums or spa.
    - Excursion on the 27th of August: guided sightseeing tour in Pécs, int he evening we visit a wine cellar in the famous village Villány.
    - The banquet will be held on the 29th of August from 17:00. We meet at the conference venue.

  8. Please be alerted, that there is a renovation on rail tracks between Budapest and Pécs during the workshop, so opting for train is not convenient: passengers are asked to change for bus and then to change back for train, and the duration of the journey is even longer. Choosing the shuttle Travel4You is the most convenient or find someone who is coming by car. Parking is possible at all three accommodation places arranged by us.
Detailed information on how to reach workshop venues and meeting times will be updated on our webpage.

While we gratefully acknowledge the financial support of Akdémiai Kiadó (Publishing House of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences), we would also like to convey the invitation of the journal Analysis Mathematica, jointly published by Akadémiai Kiadó and Springer Verlag, to submit your conference paper to the Special Issue dedicated to the 6th Workshop on Fourier Analysis. Analysis Mathematica is a journal appearing both in print and online, is registered in MR, WoS, Zbl. etc., and its current Impact Factor is 0,225. For more about the journal see its home page http://link.springer.com/journal/10476. In order to allow time for consideration we expect submitted papers sent by the end of the Workshop. In case Analysis Mathematica cannot provide enough space for all the submitted papers, we offer another reasonable journal for publication. Depending on the demand, Analysis Mathematica may also redirect some papers if need be.

The submitted papers will be refereed by independent referees and the accepted papers will be published in the regular issue no. 1 vol. 44 of Analysis Mathematica or in Mathematica Pannonica, dedicated to the workshop.
