The 2006 Southern Ontario Dynamics Day is co-organized by the Department of Mathematics & Statistics of the University of Guelph, and The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Science. The workshop will be hosted at The Fields Institute. The Southern Ontario Dynamics Day history dates back to 1995. The event is organized on a rotational basis by different Southern Ontario Universities. The 2006 Dynamics Day program consists of 12 invited lectures and a poster session. The program will cover very diverse and exciting new areas of research in dynamical systems theory and applications. The list of invited speakers is included below.

Poster Presentations

Researchers and graduate students in dynamical systems are invited to participate and present posters. Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided. However, you must register no later than March 31, 2006.
In order to present your poster you must register it (together with title, author and abstract) no later than March 31, 2006.
Poster boards 36X42" and stands will be provided.

Event Description:

The event will take place over a one day period. There will be presentation sessions and a poster session. All presentations will be of 25 minutes duration with a 5 minutes question period.

If you have any questions, please contact one of the organizers.
