The conference motel will be the Quality Inn, 7200 Baltimore Blvd. (Route 1), College Park MD 20740, 301-276-1000. It is within walking distance of the Math department. You can walk to Quality Inn from College Park Metro Station by going west along Calvert Road (exactly 1/2 mile, about 10-15 minutes); alternately you can call the hotel (301-276-1000) for shuttle pickup (we are not sure of the reliability of this pickup).

We expect to provide lodging support at the Quality Inn for conference participants, at shared room rate (if you are willing to share a room, we pay; if you request a single room, we pay half). For this, please contact Dmitry Dolgopyat (dmitry@math.umd.edu) by March 5 indicating the nights you want to stay; do not make a reservation directly with the Quality Inn. If you want to share a room and do not have a roommate, we will find one for you.

Travel and parking information

Click here for directions to the math department by car and a map for parking. Please note that this year's conference is NOT during our campus's spring break, so all parking rules must be followed strictly. We CANNOT reimburse nor waive parking tickets. On weekdays you must use a visitor lot, the closest of which is marked in yellow on the map at the link above. The Math building, where the conference will be, is also in yellow on that map.

Click here for directions to the math department by public transportation.

Click here for directions from the three Washington-area airports. Dulles airport is the most inconvenient of the three area airports.

This spring's conference coindices with the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC.


The Maryland-Penn State Dynamics Workshop

This workshop has been hosted each fall since 1991 by Penn State University and each spring since 1992 by the University of Maryland, and is jointly sponsored by the two institutions. The Maryland meeting is supported by our Department of Mathematics and by the National Science Foundation.

To be added to the electronic mailing list for this and future workshops at Maryland, send a message to majordomo@math.umd.edu with the line "subscribe dswslist" in the message body.

You can click here for past programs of the Maryland conferences, information on Dynamics and Chaos at Maryland, and the home page of the Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State, which contains information on the Penn State meetings.
