UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics hosted the international conference Dynamics Days Asia Pacific 6 (DDAP6) from July 12-14, 2010. This was the first time that a Dynamics Days meeting was held in Australia.
The conference attracted 92 participants, with 40 from Australia and 52 international visitors from Japan, Malaysia, China, Israel, UK, USA, New Zealand, Spain, Korea, India, Italy, Germany and France. A total of 59 scientific talks (5 keynote) and 10 posters were presented during the three-day meeting. Keynote presentations highlighted cutting-edge theoretical developments and applications in dynamical systems, including applications in global economic systems (Stanley) and in the treatment of prostate cancer (Aihara). Other presentations also exhibited a nice mix of theory and applications, e.g., the minisymposium “Stochastic Aspects of Dynamics Systems” included speakers from academia, CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology. The poster program was built into the program to enhance participation of PhD students and ECRs.
Dynamics Days Asia Pacific (DDAP) is a regular conference rotating among Asia-Pacific countries every two years. Its purpose is to bring together researchers worldwide to discuss the most recent developments in nonlinear science. The conference covers a variety of topics in nonlinear science including ergodic theory, algebraic dynamics, pattern formation, non-equilibrium physics, biomathematics, complex networks, econo-physics and classical and quantum chaos. DDAP started in Hong Kong in 1999 and subsequent meetings have been held in China, Singapore, Korea and Japan.
The next DDAP meeting will be held in Taipei, Taiwan in August 2012. See Dynamic Days Asia Pacific 7 (DDAP7).
