Upcoming Dynamics Conferences

Complex Geometry, Dynamical Systems and Foliation Theory
IMS, National University of Singapore
May 1 - 26, 2017

This program concerns the recent developments in Complex Analysis and its Applications. Among a very large choice of topics, we will focus on those related to Pluripotential Theory.

The Pluripotential Theory, a branch of Complex Analysis, was founded in the ’50s by Lelong and Oka. It became a very important and powerful tool  with connections with many mathematical theories: Complex Analysis, Complex Differential Geometry, Complex Algebraic Geometry, Dynamics, Foliations and also in Mathematical Physics. The aim of this program is to bring together experts  who are working in these  topics with interest in pluripotential theory. It will give them an opportunity to learn the recent results and to share their new ideas.

Beside informal discussions and seminars, we will organize a week of mini courses (accessible to PhD students, young researchers and non-experts) and also a one week conference. We would like to emphasize the following research directions:

  • Complex dynamics in higher dimension;
  • Pluripotential techniques in the theory of holomorphic foliations;
  • Bergman kernels and its applications;
  • Problems from complex geometry, complex analysis (e.g. Kobayashi hyperbolicity, Nevanlinna theory, manifolds with special Kaehler metrics) and other problems from mathematical physics.

Dynamics Beyond Uniform Hyperbolicity
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, 2001Buzios, 2003, Chicago, 2006, Beijing, 2009, Luminy, 2011, Bedlewo, 2013, and Olmue, 2015.

Summer Northwestern Analysis Program
Northwestern University, Illinois
July 24-August 11, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

I'd like to draw your attention to a summer school in analysis we are holding at Northwestern this summer.  It's a 3 week program starting on July 24, 2017.  The theme
is PDE, and there will be topics covered that should be of interest to any future/current researcher in dynamics!  (In fact, I'll be giving a general-audience talk about the Mandelbrot set in the first week.)

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.  

More details are available on the website:


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

Funding is available for US citizens and permanent residents.
