Schedule | Directions| Accommodations

Welcome to the home page for the 33rd annual Texas Partial Differential Equations Conference to be hosted by the department of mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. The conference will be held Saturday April 10 and Sunday April 11. on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. All talks will be held in Robert Lee Moore Hall, the home of the Mathematics Department at Univ. of Texas at Austin. Talks will begin at 9:00am on Saturday and end around 5pm. Talks will resume on Sunday morning at 9am and end around noon. The Mathematics Department will offer the participants a lunch on Saturday.

The Texas Partial Differential Equations Conference (Texas PDE) is an annual event that brings together researchers working on partial differential equations and related topics. The Texas PDE was first

organized by Professors Charles Radin and Ralph Showalter at the University of Texas at Austin in 1978. The Texas PDE has a strong democratic condition: there are no principal speakers, all talks are allocated the same length of time, and there is no registration fee. The intent is to encourage participation by young faculty and graduate students.

  • Directions

    All the talks will be in the RLM building at University of Texas.

    By Air:

    If you are flying into Austin, there is a convenient bus that takes you from the airport to RLM. See the schedule here Of course, there are also taxis which can cost $20-$30 as well as shuttles.


    Driving is pretty straightforward since UT is very close to I-35. Besides Google maps, (enter 2580 Speedway, Austin TX for your searches) you may also want to consult the UT Maps

    Keep in mind that 24 street between Guadalupe and Speedway may be closed due to construction. It is not possible to cross Dean Keeton staying on Speedway.


    The best bet for visitors to park is to go to the visitor parking garages which cost $10 for a whole day. The ones closest to RLM are Speedway (SWG) and San Jacinto (SJG).

    There are also metered parking spots along Dean Keeton and San Jacinto which are free on Saturday or Sunday.

    There are some free spots on campus, but they are changing. You may also try to park north of campus, but many spots are reserved for residents.


    We have blocked rooms in Extended Stay America downton. . This hotel is about 30 min walk from the Dept. There are buses nearby and we will try to organize rides. You are responsible for making your own reservations. Please mention Texas PDE conference or TXPDE when you are making the reservation. Of course, Austin has plenty of hotels and, specially if you are driving, you could find many other hotels suited to your tastes and needs.
