The Dynamical Systems Group at the Universidad de la República has been organizing several international Conferences and Workshops in the last 20 years, focusing on different aspects of dynamics and related topics.
As our group expanded, both in number of participants and areas of research, we are holding a Workshop on Groups, Geometry and Dynamics on 2018 at Montevideo as a satellite conference of ICM 2018 (Rio de Janeiro). The goal of the Workshop is to bring together top scientists working on these areas to discuss new trends on these topics. The idea is to have few talks and lots of discussion time.
During the conference we will be holding a memorial recognition to Ricardo Mañé (1948-1995), a top Uruguayan (and Brazilian) mathematician who worked on Dynamical Systems, and who in 2018 would have been 70 years old.
