Nonlinear PDE`s @ IMPA

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, June 20 – 24, 2016

The field of nonlinear partial differential equations has experienced a striking evolution over the last fifteen years in Brazil. The number of PhD’s and students has increased creating a critical mass. In this process it is fundamental to have a scientific interchange with researchers leaders in the field. The aim of the workshop is to continuing this process by allowing the community to attend to lectures of recent and important progress in the field delivered by renowned specialists. The workshop will bring together leading experts in nonlinear dispersive equations, nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, nonlinear elliptic equations and free-boundary problems. Graduate students and young PhD’s are encouraged to participate of this meeting.

Conference Venue

IMPA is located in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, near the Tijuca Forest and the Botanical Gardens, 20 minutes from major hotels of Leblon and Ipanema. You can find our address and some practical information about how to get to the institution below.


Estrada Dona Castorina, 110
Jardim Botânico
Zip Code 22460-320
Rio de Janeiro, RJ – Brazil

Phone number: (55 21) 2529-5000
Fax: (55 21) 2512-4115


How to get to IMPA:

From the airport

On leaving the airport we suggest that you take a taxi. There are several companies that have booths located inside the airport facilities, on the way out. A ride to South Zone costs around R$120 to R$150 and takes about 50 minutes. There are also special buses leaving from Terminals 1 and 2, whose routes you can find here.


There are three bus lines running near the Institute:

  • 409 – Saens Peña – Horto (via Lapa)
  • 416 – Saens Peña – Jardim Botânico (Horto) (via Túnel Rebouças)

You can check which buses line is the best for you by clicking here.

The passenger must pay as they enter, using the front door to get on the bus and the rear door to get off the bus. The bus fare is R$ 3,80 and the maximum change given is for a R$ 20,00 bill.

Should you prefer to use a taxi, we suggest the following companies:

Visa Information

The Brazilian visa system operates under a strict reciprocity policy. That means that all citizens from countries which require visas from Brazilians will have to obtain visas to attend the conference. Beware that to attend a scientific conference in Brazil a tourist visa suffices. Source: Consulate General of Brazil

Foreign participants should get in touch with the nearest Brazilian Consulate (click on the map) to find out whether a visa is required.
Here you find the list of nationalities that are exempt from this requirement, see also the official Ministry of Tourism page, that includes the whole of the European Union and Mercosur. Those who do need visa should note that a tourist visa suffices for the conference attendance; for more information about Brazil, visit the official Brazilian Institute of Tourism website.
