Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra, Barcelona, Spain

Short description of the event: 

a panorama of current research in slow-fast dynamics will be presented, both at theoretical and computational level and also with a clear view towards applications, in particular in neuroscience and climate modelling (in link with the worldwide initiative mpe2013). World leading experts will give keynote lectures on the aforementioned topics; remaining talks will be shorter and will focus on current research questions in this field.

List of keynote speakers: Freddy Dumortier (Hasselt University, Belgium), Jean-Pierre Françoise (Pierre & Marie Curie University), Olivier Faugeras (INRIA Sophia Antipolis), G. Bard Ermentrout (University of Pittsburgh), Antoni Guillamon (UPC), John Guckenheimer (Cornell University), Christopher K. R. T. Jones (University of North Carolina), Tasso J. Kaper (Boston University), Yannis Kevrekidis (Princeton University) and Martin Wechselberger (University of Sydney).

Scientifc Committee: Eric Benoît (University of La Rochelle), Freddy Dumortier (University of Hasselt), Jean-Pierre Françoise (University Pierre & Marie Curie- Paris 6), Boris Gutkin (École Normale Supérieure de Paris), Jean-Christophe Poggiale (Université de Marseille) and Robert Roussarie (Université de Dijon).

Organisers: Peter De Maeschalck (University of Hasselt), Mathieu Desroches (INRIA), Mark Kramer (Boston University), Martin Krupa (INRIA), Serafim Rodrigues (University of Plymouth), Alexandre Vidal (University of Evry) and Haiping Zhu (University of York).
