IPwin2021 is a virtual winter school and workshop at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on the topic of inverse problems in partial differential equations and geometry. The winter school aims to give participants an introduction to modern and hot topics in inverse problems based on three series of embedded lectures given by internationally recognized researchers.

In the light of the Coronavirus pandemic the winter school is organized as a virtual event meaning that lectures will be given remotely and transmitted via Zoom.

While the winter school targets junior researchers, i.e. PhD students, late MSc students, and postdocs, all interested people are very welcome to join. Note that all participants must register through the link below.

For interested participants the winter school is a DTU PhD course: 02970 Inverse Problems in Partial Differential Equations and Geometry, DTU course page for 2.5 ECTS. In order to obtain a course diploma students must by the end of the course submit a learning diary with reflections and solutions to particular problems. The assessment of the course is based on this diary.
