The conference Dynamics, Equations and Applications (DEA 2019) was organized by the Faculty of Applied Mathematics at the AGH University of Science and Technology to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the university. With 444 participants from 50 countries, 413 talks, 52 ICM speakers, and 5 Fields Medallists it was one of the most important mathematical events of the year.
The conference took place from 16 to 20 September 2019, and it was organized in 16 parallel sessions from four research fields: dynamical systems, partial differential equations, other (ordinary differential, difference and functional) types of equations, and applied mathematics. In addition to keynote and contributed talks of parallel sessions (about half of them were given during 62 mini-symposia), there were 9-10 invited talks in each field given by the world's leading experts as well as six plenary lectures delivered by five Fields Medal winners and an outstanding Polish mathematician. Moreover, Alessio Figalli gave a public lecture.
A year after the conference, two special issues of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems with 32 high-quality papers were published. DCDS-A special issue titled Dynamics at DEA 2019 contains 18 articles by 46 authors and was edited by Maciej Capiński, Núria Fagella, Michał Misiurewicz, Weixiao Shen, Benjamin Weiss, and Krzysztof Ciepliński, whereas DCDS-B special issue titled PDEs and their applications at DEA 2019 contains 14 articles by 33 authors and was edited by Yoshikazu Giga, Peter Kloeden, Irena Lasiecka, Peter Markowich, Elisabetta Rocca, Enrico Valdinoci, Enrique Zuazua, and Krzysztof Ciepliński.
DEA 2019 was held in Kraków, which is often regarded as one of the most exciting cities in Europe. Its historic center has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978, and in 2000 it held the title of the European Capital of Culture.
