Frontiers in Complex Dynamics

21-25 February 2011

Celebrating John Milnor's 80th birthday


Schedule and Location

The conference will be held at the Banff Center, with some participants staying at the adjacent Banff International Research Station.

Participants should plan to arrive on the evening of Sunday, February 20 and leave on Friday afternoon (February 25) or Saturday, February 26. Ample time has been allowed in the schedule for informal discussions among the participants, as you can see on the preliminary schedule.
The schedule is available either as a printable list with titles, or in a grid format.

The Banff Center is about 140 km west of Calgary, which takes approximately 2 hours by car or shuttle. We have made arrangements with the Banff Airporter for a discounted rate ($47.31 one way, $94.61 roundtrip) between the airport and Banff. The shuttle leaves the airport 12 times daily between 9am and 10:30pm, with returns leaving Banff between 5am and 7:30pm. You can make a reservation at the discounted rate here. If you are contacting the Banff Airporter directly, please let them know you are participating in the conference.


As of , these people have registered.

We expect to be able to cover partial food and lodging expenses of participants, but we don't anticipate having funds available for travel expenses. The NSF has agreed to support junior researchers and graduate students who are either US citizens, residents, or affiliated with a US institution.


The conference poster is available as a PDF, in the following sizes: US letter, A4, and tabloid (11"×17"). Please feel free to distribute copies.
