This work deals with a nonlinear nonstationary semilinear singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problem. We discretize this problem by the discontinuous Galerkin method in space and by the midpoint rule, BDF2 and quadrature variant of discontinuous Galerkin in time. We present a priori error estimates for these three schemes that are uniform with respect to the diffusion coefficient going to zero and valid even in the purely convective case.
