This workshop will enable progress on fundamental questions in complex dynamics by focusing on important links with complex analysis. Leading experts will present overviews of several deep techniques in complex analysis that have already had significant applications in complex dynamics, and discuss outstanding problems of major significance to which these techniques might be applied successfully.

Arrangements
The workshop will commence with Registration 08.45- 09.30 on Monday and close on Friday afternoon at 15.30.
Participation
Applications for this workshop are now closed. Please email audrey.brown(at)icms.org.uk if you have any enquiries.
Venue and Talks
The workshop will be held at 15 South College Street, Edinburgh. You may also find this map useful for the workshop. All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre. The Lecture Theatre is equipped with a data projector, computer, visualiser (the new generation of overhead projectors) and two blackboards. The projector and one board may be used simultaneously. It is best to bring your presentation on a memory stick to use in our ICMS computer. Alternatively, it is possible for you to use your own laptop with our dataprojector, but please be aware that you may have to alter your laptop resolutions/settings.
Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.
Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies (volcanic ash disruptions) that may occur on your trip.
A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 16.00 to 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey. There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 3.50 single or 6.00 GBP return - the Airlink 100. This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station, only a short walk to the accommodation and the workshop venue (see map in 'Venue' section above).
Lothian buses charge £1.50 for a single, £3.50 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.
If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has two railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.
UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.
