  • Keith Ball (UCL) has taken over from John Toland (Bath) as Scientific Director of ICMS.
  • A meeting in honour of Dave Broomhead's 60th birthday will run from noon on Monday, 15 November until 17:00 on Tuesday, 16 November. The talks will range across Dave's interests, including nonlinear dynamics, signal processing, mathematical biology and hybrid systems. The list of speakers includes several who will be familiar to the UK nonlinear dynamics community, for example, Celso Grebogi, Michael Kirby, Tom Mullin and David Rand.
  • The SIAM Activity Group on Dynamical Systems (SIAG/DS) will present the J. D. Crawford Prize (awarded to an individual for recent outstanding work on a topic in nonlinear science) at the SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems (DS11) to be held May 22-26, 2011, in Snowbird, Utah. Letters of nomination, including the citation for the paper(s), along with a C.V. should be sent, preferably via e-mail, by October 15, 2010, to littleton@siam.org.
  • The SIAM Activity Group on Dynamical Systems (SIAG/DS) will present the Jurgen Moser Lecture (awarded to a person who has made distinguished contributions to nonlinear science) at the SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems (DS11) at Snowbird, May 22-26, 2011. Letters of nomination should be sent, preferably via e-mail, by October 15, 2010, to littleton@siam.org.
  • NetEvo is a computing framework and collection of end-user tools designed to allow researchers to investigate dynamical aspects of complex networks.
