Draft of a Proposal for Dynamics Days Dresden 2001
tentative date: June 5-9, 2001
Location: MPIPKS Drsden, using facilities of the
Technical University of Dresden, Germany
Scope: The conference should attract the whole community of
researchers in the field on nonlinearity, dynamics, out-of-equilibrium
statistics, including quantum problems, stochastic systems and applications.
For this purpose, we plan about 12 invited plenary overview-talks given
by well known lecturers. These talks should be understandable by the
broad audience.
We plan 5 blocks of three parallel sessions each. These parallel
session should be organized as kinds of small symposia. The topics
(see below) and the talks given will be still general enough that
every participant should find at least one interesting out of the
three parallel sessions each. We plan to nominate competent colleagues
as chairmen and organizers of these symposia.
Contributions from participants are respected in two ways:
a) talks: A very limited number of talks will be accepted, namely
about 15, i.e. for each of the parallel symposia, the particular
organizer is stronly encouraged to select one contriution from the
participants.
b) posters: We plan 2 poster sessions, one during one afternoon,
another one in one of the evenings.

I: invited talk
The symposia in the parallel sessions can be from the following (until
now incomplete, suggestions are welcome) list:
quantum chaos
time series analysis
pattern formation
turbulence
granular materials
traffic flow
neuro-dynamics
stochastic processes
classical hamiltonian chaos
dynamical systems
non-equilibrium statistical physics
biophysics/ nonlinearity and dynamics in biology
econophysics
space time chaos
soft matter
nonlinear phenomena in engineering
complex growth phenomena
Funding: The conference will be sponsored by the Max-Planck-Institut
fuer Physik komplexer Systeme, Dresden
Staff of the MPIPKS will assist us in organization etc.
Invited speakers: Full reimbursement of travel expenses and local
costs (MPIPKS money, etsimated < 10000 EURO for 12 speakers).
Symposium organisers: waiving of the conference fee.
Conference fee:
125,-EURO normal, 75,-EURO reduced (students, unfavored countries)
The conference fee will be needed to cover costs for catering (coffee
breaks, lunches, buffet and one conference dinner) (perhaps a more
careful estimate will increase these prices by 25/15 EURO).
Inexpensive accomoation: The guest houses of the MPIPKS offer accomodation
for about 50 persons at low rates or even free of charge (not yet
fully negotiated). Upon early reservation (block booking) we expect to
get fair rates from local hotels, (estimated 60,- EURO per
night/person) for ``normal'' participants.
We expect to be able to handle about 250-300 participants and more if
neccessary.
Travel support: We would negotiate with the W.E. Heraeus-Foundation
about a particular travel support program for DDD2001. If succesful,
this would mean that interested participants send an applicaion for
travel support to Heraeus.
Remark: Presumably, in 2001 also the Experimental Chaos Conference
will take place in Germany, namely in Potsdam. A travel between
Potsdam and Dresden takes about 3 hours by train.
It might be reasonable to schedule the two conferences such that
those who are interested can attend both without unneccessary
additional travelling. However, our current proposal is guided by the
fact that there will be no lectures at the local university in the
week from June 4-9 and thus the lecture halls are more easily
available.
