Thursday, April 11 - Sunday, April 14, 2019

 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 conference will begin Thursday, April 11 at 2 pm and end by 1pm on Sunday, April 14.
