Spring 2010 Meeting of the
This conference, originally scheduled in honor of Dan Rudolph
on the occasion of his being 60, is dedicated to him in memory.
Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Related Topics
in honor of
Dan Rudolph Memorial Volume of ETDS
There will be a volume of Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems
dedicated to Dan Rudolph, who served for many years on the editorial
board. The volume editors are accepting submissions
of research articles for the volume. All submissions will be refereed
to the high mathematical and expository standards of ETDS.
Preference will be given to articles which are related to Dan Rudolph's
mathematics, or by authors with strong mathematical connections
to Dan Rudolph. The deadline for submission of an
article to the volume is Dec. 31, 2010. Articles
may be submitted to any of the editors:
- Vitaly Bergelson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Mike Boyle (email@example.com)
- Benjamin Weiss (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Program and Participants
Here is the
CONFERENCE PROGRAM .
Here is a
LIST OF PARTICIPANTS.
Here is a
LIST OF TALKS AND ABSTRACTS.
There are always more good results then there are talk slots.
Therefore we invite
participants to submit abstracts of "virtual" talks, with links if desired.
We will post these Virtual Talk abstracts and links
and also put abstracts on bulletin board at the conference. In the
of last minute cancellation by a schedule speaker, we will look through the
virtual talks for possible replacements. Email abstracts (text, html
or pdf) to Mike Boyle, email@example.com .

To be added to the electronic mailing list for this and future
workshops at Maryland, send a message to
with the line "subscribe dswslist" in the message body.
Conference Wiki and Sharing Rooms
Here is a
to a wiki for the conference. The purpose is to facilitate
communication among conference participants, especially with
regard to lodging arrangments such as sharing rooms to reduce
expense. For example, if you are looking for someone to share
a room with, you can type in at the link, and likewise delete your
posting after you've made arrangements.
In general, participants (other than invited speakers)
who need rooms should phone a motel directly.
Three local motels are
listed below, with the rates they have offered our group
("UMCP Math Department--Spring Conference").
NOTE: our room blocks and
rates are guaranteed only until March 9, 2010.
Clarion Inn , Comfort Inn
and Days Inn have extended the
rates deadline above to March 25, 2010.
Quality Inn has extended its rates deadline
to April 2, 2010.
Participants from abroad or others who can use help making a
reservation can contact Mike Boyle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
(Generally a credit card number is needed, but if that is
problematic we will find another solution.)

(you can reach QI by walking 1/2 mile east from
College Park Metro Station : leave the station using
the tunnel under the tracks, and continue in the same direction along Calvert Road)
All of the places
above are on Baltimore Avenue (also called Route 1). Clarion,
Comfort and Days are north of the University (from these, go
south to Campus Drive and turn right). Quality and Follin are
south of the University. You can see labeled satellite detail on
Google maps if you like: get directions from (e.g.) 6801 Baltimore Ave
College Park MD to Building 082, College Park, MD 20742 (Department
of Physics). The Physics Building is next to the Math Building.
Travel and parking information
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 or waive parking tickets. On weekdays until 4:00
park in a visitor lot (expensive -- up to $15/day),
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.

three Washington-area airports. Dulles airport is the most inconvenient
of the three area airports.
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.
We are grateful to the
National Science Foundation
and to our
Department of Mathematics
for their continued support of these workshops.

at Maryland, and the home page of the
Center for Dynamics and
at Penn State, which contains information on the Penn State meetings.
