Minisymposium *Implicitly constituted material models: modeling and analysis* is organized by Josef Málek (Charles University, Prague) and Endre Süli (University of Oxford) as a part of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics which will take place on July 2-7, 2012 in Krakow. The minisymposium will take place on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 from 15:45-17:45, see the congress schedule.

The objective of the minisymposium is to:

- introduce the
**implicit constitutive theory**which is a new framework for developing**material models in continuum mechanics**, - show that the new framework leads to systems of
**partial differential equations**that have very interesting structure, - discuss challenging
**mathematical issues**related to the newly developed models, - present some recent mathematical
**results**in this field.

The minisymposium consits of four lectures:

Time | Lecturer | Affiliation | Title |
---|---|---|---|

15:45 | Vít Průša | Charles University, Prague | An introduction to implicit constitutive theory to describe the response of bodies |

16:15 | Jens Frehse | University of Bonn | On Prandtl-Reuss mixtures |

16:45 | Miroslav Bulíček | Charles University, Prague | On the analysis of unsteady flows of implicitly constituted incompressible fluids |

17:15 | Endre Süli | University of Oxford | Existence of global weak solutions to implicitly constituted kinetic models of incompressible homogeneous dilute polymers |

Note that we and our colleagues also organize EVEQ 2012 (a summer school on evolution equations) which is a satellite meeting of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics. The school will take place on July, 9-13, 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic. The lectures will be deliverd by Helmut Abels (Universität Regensburg), Adrian Constantin (Universität Wien), David Gérard-Varet (Université Denis Diderot Paris 7), Igor Rodnianski (Princeton University), Sylvia Serfaty (Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions, Université Pierre et Marie Curie) and Ulisse Stefanelli (Istituto di Matematica Applicata e Tecnologie Informatiche, Pavia).
