Ergodic Theory Workshop

Prof. Idris Assani organized and hosted the 12th Ergodic Theory Workshop, March 21-23, 2013. Amidst an excellent three days of mathematical presentations, the workshop also well met explicit goals including the fostering of collaborations within and outside UNC Chapel Hill and increasing the participation of women and young researchers. In particular, this workshop brought in participants from across the USA, and from Austria, England, France, Italy, Poland, Senegal, Ukraine, and Uruguay. The keynote address to open the workshop was given in the department’s colloquium by Prof. Amie Wilkinson from the University of Chicago.

Preliminary feedback from the workshop shows that, once again, it has been a great success. Comments so far include

  • “I am filled with admiration for you and what you’ve done. That after all of these years the workshop remains fresh, informal and so inclusive is incredible.”
  • “I enjoyed meeting and talking with old friends, and making some new friends. I thought the meeting was well run and the broad mix of junior and senior speakers, of both genders, was excellent.”

Congratulations to Idris for another successful workshop.
