    Tentative Schedule

    Schedule with abstracts is here.

    Friday, April 1st

    Saturday, April 2nd - Session in honor of Mike Boyle's birthday Sunday, April 3 Monday, April 4 Tuesday, April 5


    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 Giovanni Forni (gforni@math.umd.edu) by March 1 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. After March 1st until March 25th, you should still be able to reserve a room at the Quality Inn at the conference rate by calling the hotel directly. A block of rooms is reserved (until March 25th) for conference participants.

    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 spring break, so all parking rules must be followed strictly. We CANNOT reimburse or waive parking tickets. On weekdays until 4:00 PM, you must 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.

    Click here for directions from the 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.

    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.
