The 37th Southeastern-Atlantic Regional Conference on Differential Equations (SEARCDE) will be held at Kennesaw State University on October 7-8, 2017.

SEARCDE promotes research and education in the field of differential equations by bringing together beginning and established researchers for sharing research experiences, exchanging ideas, and discussing recent developments in the field. Graduate students and recent PhD’s in the Southeast region are particularly encouraged to participate and benefit from the conference.

From its origin in 1981 at Virginia Tech, the conference has rotated among the institutions in the southeast region of the United States. A list of past years' conferences can be found at
