# Colab Mathematics Summer School

The UT Austin - Portugal "International Collaboratory for Emerging Technologies” (CoLab) is a program funded by the Portuguese Nacional Science Foundation (FCT) which is aimed to develop advanced programs of research and education.

The CoLab Mathematics Summer School is a yearly event that aims at bringing together Ph.D. students and junior faculty with well known experts in the several areas of mathematics.

This first summer school,
will be held in the
Mathematics Department of
Instituto Superior
Técnico in Lisbon, from June 16-20, 2008.
We have chosen the topic *Dynamical Systems* with particular
emphasis on pure and applied Hamiltonian dynamics. The faculty for
this school (B. Engquist, A. Fathi, R. de la Llave and
Konstantin Khanin)
are
internationally known experts.
We believe that their courses will be extremely useful for Ph.D.
students, postdocs and
established researchers
who wish to broaden their knowledge in this very active area of
research.
