The opening ceremony of Laboratorio Fibonacci, International Joint Research Unit (UMI) created by Scuola Normale Superiore and the french Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and hosted by Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio de Giorgi, will be in 5 March 2012.

Speakers: Thomas Alazard, Sylvain Arlot, Patrick Bernard, Jérôme Bertrand, Giuseppe Buttazzo, Guillaume Carlier, Alain Chenciner, Scipio Cuccagna, Jacopo De Simoi, Daniele Del Santo, Luca Fanelli, Albert Fathi, Jacques Féjoz, Nicola Gigli, David Lannes, Luca Marchese, Carlos Matheus, Guy Métivier, Laure Saint-Raymond, Yannick Sire, Jean-Christophe Yoccoz.

The Laboratory Fibonacci is a new research unit in mathematics hosted by the Centro De Giorgi in Pisa, fruit of an agreement between the French National Centre for Scientific Research and the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. To celebrate its birth, a meeting will take place at the Centro de Giorgi, from the afternoon of March 5 to March 8. The first afternoon will be devoted to contributions from Italian and French authorities and two general talks. The rest of the meeting will cover three topics where the Italy-France mathematical cooperation is particularly successful and developed, namely dynamical systems, linear and nonlinear wave equations and optimal mass transportation.
