Show List of Speakers

This intensive two-day workshop will spotlight several innovative applications of dynamical systems theory, offering advanced graduate students and recent PhDs an insider's tour of recent developments in the field and setting the stage for the semester-long program Dynamical Systems. The program includes invited lectures, contributed talks, a poster session, and a workshop dinner. Men are actively encouraged to participate. Speakers include Gerda de Vries (U Alberta), Jenny Harrison (UC Berkeley), Rachel Kuske (U British Columbia), Mary Silber (Northwestern), and Mary Lou Zeeman (Bowdoin College). A key goal of the workshop is the recruitment of participants as active members and future leaders of the growing network of women in the mathematical sciences. There will be ample opportunity to make new contacts and share strategies for identifying and achieving our scientific and professional goals. Workshop Schedule
