  Welcome to the 29th Annual Texas Partial Differential Equations Conference to be hosted by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington. The conference will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and March 26 on the campus of UT-Arlington. The city of Arlington is located at the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, about 25 miles from Dallas, 15 miles from Fort Worth.

In keeping with tradition, there will be no registration fee, and no principal speakers. All talks will be allocated the same length of time. The intent is to encourage participation by young faculty and graduate students, although there are no funds available for travel support.

Those who wish to present their research at the meeting should also submit a title and a short abstract by 5pm on Monday, March 20, 2006.
