Winter Conference of Dynamicists
01 Dec 2021 - 10 Jan 2022 • Winter Park Resort (Colorado), United States
We invite you to take part in a Winter Conference of Dynamicists that will take place in Winter Park Ski Resort (Colorado, US) during Dec 1, 2021 - Jan 10, 2022. This venue offers excellent opportunities to maximize informal networking among field leaders and students alike, to drive innovative, intra-disciplinary, and cross-disciplinary discussions and collaborations. The conference will span all topics of dynamical systems theory that help to understand, predict, and control real world processes and models.

COMD – Semester — Complex Dynamics: from special families to natural generalizations in one and several variables
18 Jan 2022 - 27 May 2022 • Berkeley, California, United States
MRSI – Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley
Holomorphic dynamics is a vibrant field of mathematics that has seen profound progress over the past 40 years. It has numerous interconnections to other fields of mathematics and beyond. Our semester will focus on three selected classes of dynamical systems: rational maps (postcritically finite and beyond); transcendental maps; and maps in several complex variables. We will put particular emphasis on the interactions between each these, and on connections with adjacent areas of mathematics.

Connections Workshop: Complex Dynamics - from special families to natural generalizations in one and several variables
03 Feb 2022 - 04 Feb 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
This workshop will feature lectures on a variety of topics in complex dynamics, given by prominent researchers in the field, as well as presentations by younger participants. It precedes the introductory workshop and will preview the major research themes of the semester program. There will be a panel discussion focusing on issues particularly relevant to junior researchers, women, and minorities, as well as other social events. This workshop is open to all mathematicians.

Introductory Workshop: Complex Dynamics - from special families to natural generalizations in one and several variables
07 Feb 2022 - 12 Feb 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
This workshop is built around four minicourses that will introduce the participants to a range of recent techniques in various areas of holomorphic dynamics, given by specialists in these topics. The event is complemented by a series of talks by leaders in the field, aimed at a large audience and presenting current research directions in the area.

Banff Workshop — Equilibrium and non-Equilibrium Pattern Formation in Soft Matter: From Elastic Solids to Complex Fluids
24 Jul 2022 - 29 Jul 2022 • UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, B.C., Canada
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Patterns are abundant in nature, from ripples and dunes that form in sand, to the wrinkling of dried fruits, our fingerprints, or the folds in our brains. How exactly do they form? By the laws of physics, of course, but why should the ripples form in this way, or the wrinkles go in that way, and why do our brains fold at all? Explaining these and other emergent patterns presents a serious and important challenge for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers alike. This workshop will explore questions at the forefront of our understanding of pattern formation, focusing on identifying universal mathematical descriptions.

Two distinct paradigms are currently used to explain patterns. The workshop aims to find links and commonality between them. Many regular patterns can be explained as being the “best” possible configuration in the sense that they optimize some quantity, usually the energy. In other more dynamic cases, patterns emerge as a result of open processes with no obvious optimum energy. Nevertheless, universal mathematical connections do exist between these two approaches, even though they are typically found in quite distinct sciences. This workshop brings together scientists from these different fields to find common explanations.
