Beginning in Fall 1991, the dynamics groups of the University of Maryland and Pennsylvania State University have jointly sponsored two annual three to four 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; the conference archives indicate their scope.
The Spring 2017 meeting will be held Friday-Sunday, March 31-April 2. See the Speakers/Schedule tab for the (evolving) list of speakers. Any PhD advisor ready to recommend a student with good results to give a short talk is encouraged to contact one of the organizers.
In general, we hope to support participants with $75/ night toward reimbursement of travel and local expenses. Please note on your registration form if you request funding. It will be easier for us to make commitments to those who register sooner.
