The scope of this meeting is to gather researchers interested in the study of elliptic and parabolic equations via the Maximum Principle.
This conference will be in spirit a sequel to the conferences Positivity: a key to fully - nonlinear equations (Vietri 2010), Mostly Maximum Principle (Roma 2012, Agropoli 2015 and Banff 2017). This edition will be held at the Palazzone (Cortona, Italy).
This series has started as a relatively small gathering of high level mathematicians working in areas related with the maximum principle, and has expanded in themes and number of participants, but without diminishing the level of the mathematicians involved and without losing the original spirit.
The maximum principle arises in so many instances and problems that we cannot hope to cover them all. During the Conference, we will mainly focus on the following aspects:

By train and buses
We recommend the railway station Camucia-Cortona (3 km to Cortona) for train travel from Florence. Please note that in the Camucia-Cortona station one can only buy kilometer tickets from a machine.
We recommend the railway station Terontola-Cortona (9 km to Cortona) for train travel from Rome.
Camucia-Cortona and Terontola-Cortona railway stations are connected by hourly buses to the Piazza Mercato, just outside Cortona's walls. For the schedule see here.
Bus tickets cannot be bought on the buses themselves.
Taxis can be hired from the railway stations of Camucia and Terontola, or in the centre of Cortona in Piazza della Repubblica.
The closest airport is Florence, but for inter-continental flights is Rome. Another option is Pisa. From there, continue by train.
