Organizing Committee:  Xin Lu (Chair), Y. Chang, M. Freeze, K. Gurganus, M. TenHuisen

The conference proceedings will be published by the international journal Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems.  DCDS is a leading journal with SCI status and a high impact factor.  All papers must meet the high standard of the journal and will be carefully refereed. 

Format: There will be plenary invited one-hour presentations, mini-symposia (45 minutes), special sessions (30 minutes), and contributed sessions (20 minutes). 

Coverage: Analysis, differential equations, dynamical systems, in the very broad sense. Applications to real-world problems, including chemical, physical, and life sciences, in the forms of mathematical modeling and computations.

Deadlines:  Abstract: March 15, 2002; Pre-registration: March 15, 2002 (both registration forms and fees)

Registration Fees: Regular:  $150.00; Student: $ 75.00, by 3/15/2002.  After this date, Regular: $170.00; Student: $ 85.00.
