Exeter, Great Britain
December 13 - 16, 2005

The theme of this workshop is to discuss recent developments in geometric dynamics with singularities, and a number of related topics with the particular goal of faciliting informal interactions among participants in different areas. Aspects include:

* Interval exchanges and piecewise isometries
* Geometric methods for nonhyperbolic systems
* Topological and measure dynamics
* Substitution systems defined by geometric systems
* Algebraic dynamics
* Applications in physical and other systems

The workshop is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council of the United Kingdom (EPSRC).

The Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto Canada
November 16-20 2005

The program spans 3 full days, 17-19 November 2005. It contains a mixture of plenary sessions, parallel scientific sessions that include both expert invited presentations and submitted oral abstracts, dedicated poster sessions, breakfast workshops, and a lunchtime panel discussion. Delegates will have ample choice to attend sessions of interest. For trainees and young investigators, the program will include a welcome reception, meet-the-professor breakfasts, and awards for outstanding abstracts. The conference dinner promises to be fun, and there will be plenty of time for informal networking.

Leon, Guanajuato, MEXICO
4-7 October 2005

The CSDS-2005 will feature the latest research in theory of control and synchronization of complex systems and its applications in different areas of science and engineering, including optics, electronics, mechanics, chemistry, medicine, economy, telecommunication, etc. The conference brings together researchers, both theoreticians and experimentalists, from different fields of science to provide an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas and problems among specialists in controlling dynamical systems and synchronization.

Fall 2005 - Spring 2006

The main focus of this program will be on the interaction between 3-dimensional Hyperbolic Geometry and Holomorphic Dynamics. These two fields have flourished through the past 30 years, with numerous fruitful exchanges that have enriched both of them. In recent years, we have witnessed many exciting breakthroughs in the both fields. The program would provide an opportunity to reckon the recent achievements and to discuss further directions they open. Along with the above two main themes, we plan to incorporate into the program a number of related directions, including the theory of laminations, partially hyperbolic dynamics, and flows on moduli spaces. All of them are closely interconnected, in particular, through the theory of laminations which provides them with a unifying framework. Tentatively, the beginning of the program will concentrate on topics in partially hyperbolic dynamics, Teichmüller flow, and laminations, the middle part will focus on one- and two-dimensional holomorphic dynamics; and the end will cover various topics in hyperbolic geometry including the recent solution of longstanding conjectures in deformation theory of hyperbolic manifolds and recent advances in Thurston's Geometrization Program. Accordingly, the program will include two or three workshops and a number of graduate courses and mini-courses on the topics of the program.
