Dynamics

This conference is from October 3 through 6th in Radford, VA. Contact Karl
Pribram at (703)831-5108 for information and reservations.

2. 2nd Experimental Chaos Conference
Invited Speakers include:
Julio Ottino and John Sommerer on spatio-temporal chaos
Fedor Mitshcke and R. G. Harrison on chaos in optical systems
Norden Huang on meteorology and oceanography
Katepalli Sreenivasan on general chaos
Rajarshi Roy on applications: control and tracking
A. V. Oppenheim on applications: communications and signal processing
Steven Schiff, James Weiss, Walter Freeman, and Frank Moss on biology
Jack Hudson, Kenneth Showalter, and Roger Rollins on chemistry, and
Michael Crichton for a luncheon talk.

Walter Freeman will be discussing his results on olfactory chaos.

I've even got a poster session paper, commissioned to provide an
engineer's perspective on Freeman's work. 

This conference is from October 6th through 8th in Arlington, VA. It does
overlap the Radford Conference, although many of us in the DC area will be
attending both. Contact Mark Spano at the Naval Surface Warfare Center
(mark at chaos.nswc.navy.mil or 301.394.2433) for information.
