July 24-August 11, 2017

The theme is PDE, and there will be topics covered that should be of interest to any future/current researcher in dynamics! The first week of the program is aimed at advanced undergraduates, especially those who will enter graduate school in the Fall.  The second week is intended for beginning graduate students, and the third week for advanced graduate students and postdocs.  

In particular, there is a (soft) deadline of March 1 for registration.  

Funding is available for US citizens and permanent residents.

Pingree Park, Colorado
July 17 - 20, 2017

Applications are now being accepted for the 6th Pingree Park Dynamical Systems Workshop, July 17th-20th, 2017. (See instructions below.) The focus will be on topological dynamics and ergodic theory, with a particular emphasis on symbolic dynamics. We will have three minicourses given by Emmanuel Jeandel (University of Lorraine), Anthony Quas (University of Victoria), and Ayse Sahin (Wright State University), as well as assorted shorter talks. More information can be found at the conference webpage at

Funding comes from NSF grant DMS-1700430 and the University of Denver. Local costs for participants will be covered - transportation from the University of Denver to Pingree Park on July 16th, transportation from Pingree Park to Denver International Airport on July 21st, and room and board at Pingree Park. Some limited amount of funding is available to support travel; graduate students and early-career mathematicians will receive top priority for funding.

To apply, please send the following information to Nic Ormes (

1.  A current CV with publication list

2.  Whether you would be interested in speaking

3.  Whether or not you would request travel funding from us

If you are a graduate student and don't have a CV, you can omit this, but make sure to include your name, institution, and Ph.D. advisor.

Due to the limited space at the facility, the number of participants will be limited to 36. Applications must be submitted by FEBRUARY 10, 2017 to receive full consideration, though they may be sent at any time. We hope to start selecting participants shortly thereafter.

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste
June 19-23, 2017

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste is organizing a Workshop in Hyperbolic Dynamics with an emphasis on topics that have benefited from the seminal contributions of Yakov Pesin, on the occasion of his 70th birthday.

The workshop will take place at ICTP, Trieste on 19-23 June 2017 and will include lectures by internationally renowned speakers who have led the progress in the field over several decades. There will be ample opportunities for interaction and discussion amongst participants of all levels of experience.

The workshop is organized in conjunction with a school in Hyperbolic Dynamics which will be held on 12-16 June 2017 at the Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio de Giorgi, Pisa, with mini-courses by D. Dolgopyat (Maryland), S. Luzzatto (ICTP), Y. Pesin (Penn State), F. Rodriguez-Hertz (Penn State) and some invited seminars. Details can be found on the website of the school at:
Registration, participation and funding for the two events are independent of each other.

Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio de Giorgi - Pisa
June 12-16, 2017

This is an advanced school on hyperbolic dynamics and related topics. Subjects include SRB measures, non-uniformly hyperbolic diffeomorphisms, statistical properties, Young towers, coupling arguments.

The school will feature four minicourses, given by:
        • Dmitry Dolgopyat (University of Maryland)
        • Stefano Luzzatto (ICTP Trieste)
        • Yakov Pesin (Pennsylvania State University)
        • Federico Rodriguez-Hertz (Pennsylvania State University)
Additionally there will be several research seminars, and possibly short contributed talks by some of the participants.

Some funds are available to offer financial support to a limited number of selected students and young researchers.
The deadline for application is 12th April 2017.

Planned in conjunction with this school, a workshop on hyperbolic dynamics will take place at ICTP, Trieste the following week 19-23 June 2017.
Registration, participation and funding for the two events are independent of each other.

BYU, Provo, Utah
June 5 - 16, 2017

In the last 25 years, the body of research about smooth dynamical systems beyond the uniformly hyperbolic setting has grown substantially and at a rapid pace. Every 2-3 years since 2001, a workshop has been held to disseminate new results, establish connections between researchers, and train new generations of early career mathematicians. Carefully chosen mini-courses and a small number of invited talks allow ample time for informal collaboration. Previous workshops have been held in Evanston, 2001, Buzios, 2003, Chicago, 2006, Beijing, 2009, Luminy, 2011, Bedlewo, 2013, and Olmue, 2015.

College de France, Paris
May 29 - 31, 2017

A conference on dynamical systems in the memory of Jean-Christophe Yoccoz will be held at Paris (Collège de France) from may 29th to 31st 2017.
It will be followed by a (large audience) tribute on June 1st.
