  • Nominations for the Jurgen Moser Lecture and the J.D. Crawford Prize are open. Both will be presented at the SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems (DS07), May 28-June 1, 2007. See the SIAM nominations page for further details.
  • DSWeb, the the website of the SIAM Activity Group on Dynamical Systems, is hosting the second biennial competition for tutorials on dynamical systems and its applications written by graduate and undergraduate students and recent graduates. Two winners will each receive $500 as well as a $500 student travel fund to attend the SIAM Dynamical Systems meeting in Snowbird, Utah (May 28-June 1, 2007).
  • International Master of Science in methods for management of complex systems, University of Pavia


  • Sergey Zelik has been appointed to a Lectureship at the University of Surrey from 1st October 2006. Sergey received his PhD degree from Moscow State University. Since then, he has held a postdoctoral research position at the University of Poitiers, stayed as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the University of Stuttgart, and has been a Weierstrass Fellow at the WIAS Berlin. Sergey's research interests include attractor theory for partial differential equations on unbounded domains, fluid dynamics, Navier-Stokes equations, and entropy measures for space-time chaos.
