Inverse Problems for PDEs (IP2016)

Aims and Scope

The Workshop on Inverse Problems for PDEs (March 29 - April 1, 2016) aims to gather researchers working in the broad field of inverse problems linked to partial differential equations, providing a place to discuss current directions, novel methods, and future trends in the field.


The Workshop topics include, but are not restricted to, parameter identification for complex systems governed by partial differential equations, iterative and qualitative methods for domain reconstruction, optimization techniques, inverse eigenvalue problems, as well as the application of inversion algorithms in scientific, engineering, or industrial problems.

Place and Date

The workshop takes place at the University of Bremen, Germany, during the week after Easter 2016 (Tuesday 29.3.2016 until Friday 1.4.2016).


The workshop is organized by the Workgroup on Inverse Problems at the Center of Industrial Mathematics of University of Bremen.


The Workshop on Inverse Problems for PDEs 2016 is supported by the Center of Industrial Mathematics of University of Bremen as well as by the Exploratory Project Inside-Outside-Duality and Non-destructive Testing granted by the University of Bremen in the framework of its institutional strategy, funded by the excellence initiative of the federal and state governments of Germany.


Participation in the workshop is free of charge. To simplify the organization of the workshop we nevertheless insist that all participants register in advance by sending a short email to Frederieke Miesner.

Since the number of talks is limited, we might be forced to make a selection among proposed talks, following a first-come-first-serve rule. Registration for talks is closed!

The workshop features a poster session. Please tell us until February 15March 1, 2016, whether you intend to present a poster and, if so, indicate the title of your poster. There is no limit for posters and the session will be informal.

Talks (in the order of the schedule)

Here are two compressed folders containing the talks of Tuesday/Wednesday (talks-ip2016-1 (application/zip 19.3 MB)) and Thursday/Friday (talks-ip2016-2 (application/zip 17.8 MB)).


The workshop takes place in the university building MZH (Mehrzweckhochhaus), the largest building in the central area on the campus. Our rooms on the first floor are MZH 1460 and MZH 1470. All university facilities and university restaurants are nearby.

Here is a map of the university and its surroundings and a list of shops on campus.


There are three hotels on or close to campus:

Public Transportation

Bremen has a very well developed public transportation system and we strongly encourage you to use it whenever going, e.g., into town, to the railway station, or to the airport. Maps of the tram and bus system in the city of Bremen can be found here and timetable information is available here.

Purchasing Tickets for the Tram

You can purchase your ticket at a ticket vending machine inside the tram. The ticket machines provide instructions in English and accept banknotes up to 50€ notes. You have to purchase an adult single ticket (EinzelTicket Erwachsene) for 2.70€. If you plan to use the tram frequently, you can buy a ticket for seven days for 21,70€ or ten single tickets for 24,00€ at the BSAG ticket shop outside the central train station (or at tram stop Domsheide) or at the university at Onkel Walter's shop in the central Glashalle (glass hall), see the maker GH in square C2 on the campus plan www.uni-bremen.de/universitaet/die-uni-im-ueberblick/lageplan.html.
