Start time: April 18, 2017

Ends on: April 21, 2017

Location: São Paulo, Brazil


The workshop will focus on several aspects of non-linear phenomena in field theory, in particular on the properties of solitons. Topics will include both the mathematical structures of these systems, such as (classical) integrability and duality, and also applications of these systems to different branches of science using numerical techniques. We will also honour the important contributions of Prof. Dr. Luiz Agostinho Ferreira (IFSC/USP) to this area on the occasion of his 60th birthday during the Wednesday session of this workshop.  There is no registration fee.
