Workshop on Conservative Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, August, 3 – 7

The Workshop aims to gather experts on Conservative Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry, from Brazil and abroad, in a leisurely ambiance.
Just as in the first five editions of the meeting, held at IMPA in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013, the program includes a small number of lectures, leaving plenty of time for informal discussions.
The main topics are Symplectic Topology with applications to Hamiltonian Dynamics, Contact Geometry, Dynamics of Lagrangian Systems and Twist Maps, Integrable Systems, Aubry-Mather theory, among others.

Participants should check, as soon as possible (in view of the time it may take to obtain a visa), whether a visa is needed for Brazil. Visas are not required for Latin American and EU citizens. They are, however, required for all citizens of countries which request visas from Brazilian citizens. Please visit for more information.
