The purpose of the workshop is to bring together scientists from the field of
Optimization with PDE constraints, and related research areas.
The event is organized as a pre-GAMM2008 workshop, with the annual
GAMM meeting taking place in Bremen (March 31 - April 4, 2008).
The workshop is closely related to the activities of the
DFG Priority Programme 1253 'Optimization with Partial Differential Equations',
and also to the
Collaborative Research Center 609 'Elektromagnetische Strömungsbeeinflussung in Metallurgie, Kristallzüchtung und Elektrochemie'.
Within the workshop a meeting of the GAMM activity group 'Optimization with Partial Differential Equations' will take place.
