Beginning in Fall 1991, the dynamics groups of the University of Maryland and Pennsylvania State University have jointly sponsored two annual three 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. Along with talks of prominent mathematicians, the conferences always include several short talks by graduate students.
This year the spring meeting will occur from April 18--20, 2015. There will be 14 talks and 8 short talks. As part of the event, the last talk is also the departmental Mathematics Colloquium. This year the invited speaker is Francois Ledrappier.
