ixchel north-american   workshop   in   holomorphic   dynamics

May 27-June 4, 2016      Cancún, México

Celebrating John Milnor's 85th birthday


Schedule and Location

The workshop will be held at the Fiesta Americana Condesa hotel in Cancún, México, between May 27 and June 4, 2016.

The first two days (May 28 and 29) will consist of minicourses on the topics of Teichmüller theory, foliations, Thurston's classification of rational maps, and quasi-conformal surgery. The minicourses will be followed by a five-day conference presenting current research (May 30-June 3).

There is limited space at the workshop, so interested participants should register their interest as soon as possible. While we anticipate being able to provide meals and lodging for all participants and speakers, funds to offset travel expenses are very limited.
