If you want to put your car at the hotel and take a free shuttle any time during the day on Friday, just let the hotel know - they leave on the hour and require 20 minutes notice or so. Unfortunately they don't pick you up late at night but there will be people with cars available.
If you park in town near the campus, the parking lots on Rosemary street near the intersection with Columbia are good. There are about 4-5 of them. We can likely cover reasonable parking fees, but not parking tickets if you park illegally!!!!
On Saturday you need to put your car in a lot early to find a spot at all. Campus parking is free on weekends.
I recommend heading straight for N7 on this campus map: Campus Parking Map, but not on Friday before 5!! You can move your car from paid parking to here on Friday if you want stay in the center of town after the talks are over.
There are plenty of restaurants near the hotel and near the campus (they are 3 miles apart) and Starbucks near each as well.
The schedule of talks is available. Carolina Dynamics Schedule of Talks
Starting time: 3:30 Friday, April 12, for tea and cookies. Ending time: Around 3:30 Sunday, April 14.
We have now closed the hotel reservations through our department. However you can book your own room through the lodging site and they may well give you our group discount for another week or so. If you are planning to attend, and have not registered, please sign up so we have a good count.
We are also taking the final count for speakers. If you have registered and not told us you would like to speak, please email the organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
We are pleased that we will have quite a few student speakers this year. The abstracts will be posted as we receive them.
Carolina Dynamics 2013 will be held at UNC Chapel Hill from Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14. The conference format will be unchanged from the last year. We will start on Friday afternoon, go all day Saturday and most of Sunday.
All participants are invited to give talks whose length will be determined by the number of speakers. In addition we will have a few longer talks.
The financial support is generously provided by NSF grant DMS-1301581. Limited travel and lodging financial support will be available to most attendees. However priority will be given to graduate students, post-docs and new Ph.D.s.
On behalf of the organizer for this year's conference, Jane Hawkins, her finishing Ph.D. students Rachel Bayless and Joanna Furno, I hope to see you in April!!
Great News - the Carolina Dynamics proposal written by me, Pedrag, and Martin was funded for three years!!! It's a fairly modest level but exactly what we proposed, enough to pay for the locals to get gas money and accommodation for two nights, and to bring in two speakers from North America (flight and accommodation and expenses for 2 - not easily stretched to 3). Very little to nothing beyond that before we get too excited. Also a promise to include grads, some undergrads if possible, and continue to try to diversify participants.
Thanks very very much to those of you who supplied letters of support; it was very helpful and the widespread support from across "the Carolinas" is what pushed us over the top.
The grant will allow us to expand a little beyond what we've been doing.
Spring 2013 Carolina Dynamics Symposium is to be held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The organizer is Jane Hawkins.
The date of the 10th annual Symposium is now determined. The conference will be held April 13-15, 2012. The theme of the meeting is the new developments in Dynamical Systems, relations to other branches of mathematics and applications. The conference is an opportunity to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Carolina Dynamical Systems group, to reflect on its humbled origins and on the history of dynamical systems in the Southeast as a whole. The list of invited speakers includes:
The financial support is generously provided by NSF grant DMS-1201546. Limited travel and lodging financial support will be available to the most attendees. However priority will be given to graduate students, post-docs and new Ph.D.s. Due to NSF regulations, we kindly ask all participants to register. There is no fee for registration and no fixed deadline but we would appreciate if people register early so that we can plan accordingly.
