The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Symbolic Dynamical Systems" workshop in Oaxaca, from May 12, 2019 to May 17, 2019.

The workshop will bring together the theories of ergodicity, group actions, complexity and computability, cellular automata, thermodynamic formalism with its Gibbs measures and phase transitions, and analytic combinatorics, with symbolic dynamics as their main common subject. With a wide range of closely related topics of discussion encompassing one and multidimensional dynamics, decidability, particle models of statistical mechanics and more, the workshop will gather expert scientists and specialists as well as young researchers and postdocs in order to motivate new collaborations that will promote new developments in and contributions to these highly active and fascinating subjects.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide 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 in Banff 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). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
