University of Maryland, College Park, MD
April 15 - 17, 2016

Beginning in Fall 1991, the dynamics groups of the University of Maryland and Pennsylvania State University have jointly sponsored two annual three to four day meetings in dynamical systems and related topics: a spring meeting here in College Park, and a fall meeting in State College. These meetings, though primarily regional, also attract participants outside the region and the country; the conference archives indicate their scope.

The Spring 2016  meeting will be held Friday-Sunday, April 15-17.  See the Speakers/Schedule tab for the (evolving) list of speakers.  Any PhD advisor ready to recommend a student with good results to give a short talk is encouraged to contact one of the organizers.

On Thursday April 14 before the conference, speakers will be scheduled in our afternoon dynamics seminar, and there will be a welcoming party Thursday evening at the home of Mike and Roxanne Boyle for those who arrive with the time and energy to come by.

We are very grateful to NSF for its support of the Spring 2016 meeting, and its support for this conference since its inception.    More information on speakers, program, logistics, support etc. will be posted in due course.

Stony Brook University
March 19-20, 2016

The AMS Sectional Meeting at Stony Brook University will take place on March 19-20, 2016 in Stony Brook, NY. The Institute for Mathematical Sciences is organizing a special session on "Holomorphic Dynamics" with emphasis on the interplay between one dimensional dynamics and dynamics in several complex variables. At this meeting there will be four blocks for the special session on Holomorphic Dynamics (Saturday AM, Saturday PM, Sunday AM, Sunday PM) with each block being 3 hours long.

More information about this meeting and about all special sessions can be found on the AMS website. The meeting at Stony Brook is #1118 and the code of our special session on Holomorphic Dynamics is SS 4A.

Speakers will include:

Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal
January 11-15, 2016

This conference will focus on recent progress and on new techniques in dynamical systems with special emphasis on complex dynamics. The interplay between real and complex dynamics will be a topic of interest. Special attention will also be paid to the geometric aspects of the field including the study and the applications of foliations/laminations. The points of view of Complex analysis, Ergodic theory and Probability will all be represented as well.

The main theme of this conference is Ergodic Theory, its many facets, and their connections to multiple branches of mathematics, with an
emphasis on new and emerging directions.  The conference will be an opportunity to celebrate over 50 years of Ergodic Theory in Israel and
the occasion of Hillel Furstenberg’s 80th birthday.

participate to pre-register as soon as possible at the conference website:

Please note that, subsequently, a formal registration will be required at the CIRM website; we need the pre-registration, however, in order to book the CIRM housing.

A limited amount of funding will be available for students only upon request, on a first come-first served basis.
