October 16 - 19, 2014

The 25th Fall meeting of the Workshop in “Dynamical Systems and Related Topics” will take place on October 16 - 19, 2014.  The workshop will be dedicated to the 70th birthday of Anatole Katok and his 50 years of research in dynamical systems. All lectures will be held at the Mathematics Department (114 McAllister Building) at the Penn State University Park campus.

This workshop has been hosted each fall since 1991 by Penn State University and each spring since 1992 by the University of Maryland, and is jointly sponsored by the two institutions. The basic funding of the workshop is provided by an NSF grant. Additional funding for this meeting is provided by the Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State.

Please make your own lodging reservations.  The room blocks and cutoff dates are listed on the attached registration form.  Please register at your earliest possible convenience by completing the form and sending it to Hope Shaffer. If you request support please make a note on the registration form. Registration form is attached for your convenience.

Bannach Center Conferences, IMPAN, Będlewo, Poland​
July 21 - 25, 2014

The goal of the conference is to keep in contact active and developing researchers working in complex analysis and its most important applications with some of the international leaders in the discipline. The main topics of the conference reflect the impact of Prof. Alexandre Eremenko (Purdue University) on modern complex analysis. During the conference we will celebrate his 60th birthday anniversary.

The principal themes of this meeting are the following:

•  Classical complex analysis and its associated potential theory
•  Iteration of real, rational and entire mappings
•  Real algebraic geometry
•  Spectral theory and mathematical physics
•  Diverse subjects centered on analysis

Invited plenary speakers include:

    Carl Bender (Washington University in St. Louis)
    Walter Bergweiler (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel)
    Mario Bonk (University of California, Los Angeles)
    Mikhail Lyubich (Stony Brook University)
    Mikhail Sodin (Tel Aviv University)
    Frank Sottile (Texas A&M University)
    Alexander Volberg (Michigan State University)

Institute of Mathematics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine
June 23 - 27, 2014

We are pleased to invite you to attend the International Conference “Dynamical Systems and Their Applications” organized by the Institute of Mathematics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, which will be held in Kyiv on June 23-27, 2014. The topics of the conference include topological dynamics, ergodic theory, the theory of attractors and chaos, combinatorial and symbolic dynamics, the theory of fractals, bifurcation and stability theory, infinite-dimensional dynamical systems, and various kinds of applications, especially in mathematical physics.

Considerable attention will be given to combinatorial dynamics, which has its origin in the well-known Sharkovsky theorem on the coexistence of cycles (Ukrainian mathematical journal, 1964), and which in 2014 can celebrate its 50th anniversary.

A related abstract should be sent to in LaTeX format not later than May 15, 2014 (template can be downloaded from the conference web-site). Notification of acceptance will be sent not later than May 20, 2014.
