The Banff International Research Station will host the "Frontiers in Complex Dynamics (Celebrating John Milnor's 80th birthday)" workshop from February 20 to February 25, 2011.

"Frontiers in Complex Dynamics" is designed as a 5-day Workshop hosted by
BIRS and the Banff Conference Center where leading experts in the field,
along with many young researchers from all over the world, will discuss the
latest trends and ideas in holomorphic dynamical systems.

The field of complex dynamics, founded in the early 20th century by Fatou
and Julia, experienced explosive development in the last two decades of the
century, followed with deep breakthroughs in several long-standing problems.
This Workshop seeks to set the ground for future developments of the field.
Interactions with other fields such as Teichmuller theory, hyperbolic and
complex geometry, arithmetic dynamics, statistical physics and numerical
analysis, will be strongly emphasized.

The Workshop will be linked to celebration of John Milnor's 80th birthday.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
