We are planning this year's Young Mathemticians' Conference for Saturday January 29th, 2005. The idea is to have a regular meeting of mathematicians interested in PDE and/or dynamical systems, which would specialize in inviting junior mathematicians to speak. We started last January with the first of such conferences, held in conjunction with our Thematic Program in PDE at the Fields Institute.
This year our meeting will be held at McMaster University. The objective of this meeting is to encourage scientific exchange, and to create an opportunity for young mathematicians in an early stage of their career to get to know each other and each other's work. The program consists of two senior 'plenary' speakers and 8 regular speakers. In addition, young mathematicians from around the country who are interested in PDE and in dynamical systems are invited to attend, with support for their participation from the conference (hopefully shared with their doctoral advisor). Our informal rule is that but for the two 'plenary' speakers, all other talks were given by people within a few years (either way) of their PhD. More senior mathematicians are of course welcome to attend. Young people have been invited from all over Canada for the coming event. We feel that this is a good way to help to develop and to maintain a feeling of community in the discipline. Our funding was provided by our NSERC Leadership Support Intiative Grant, the Fields Insitute, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McMaster University, and CRC Program.
