ALOP Workshop on Nonlocal Models (canceled) – new date to be announced!

July 27 / 9:00 - July 30 / 17:00


Due to the current travel restrictions, this workshop will be postponed. Please check back for further announcements as to the new dates.


The Research Training Group on Algorithmic Optimization is hosting a workshop on

which will take place at Trier University, Germany, from July 27-30, 2020.


Confirmed Plenary Speakers

Harbir Antil (George Mason University)
Marta D’Elia (Sandia National Laboratories)
Max Gunzburger (Florida State University)
Julio D. Rossi (Universidad de Buenos Aires)
Pablo Seleson (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)



The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from various fields that intersect with nonlocal spacial modeling and thereby generate fruitful synergistic effects among the participants. The workshop will be focused on models which are nonlocal in space; including fractional equations as well as nonlocal models with a finite range of interactions. Aspects that shall be covered include:

  • Optimization (optimal distributed control, interface and parameter identification, etc.)
  • Analysis and Stochastics (numerical analysis, jump processes, etc.)
  • Implementation (finite element and mesh-free methods, Monte-Carlo type methods, low-rank approaches, spectral methods, etc.)
  • Applications (finance, peridynamics, economic models, etc.)


Young researchers are particularly encouraged to present their ongoing work and future research directions. If you are a student (Master or PhD), you can apply for a travel stipend in the registration form below.
