Dynamics in Valparaíso


The aim of the conference is to bring together around 30 researchers in Dynamical Systems from around the world, with a special interest in the study of geometric and statistical aspects of systems with weak forms of hyperbolicity. We plan to have around 4 talks each day, where the participants can either communicate their latest results, or present a survey with the latest developments on a specific topic. We also plan to give plenty of time and space for discussions among the participants.

We thank  Pierre Berger for provide us this image.

Practical Information

Transportation Santiago Airport – Valparaíso:

From the airport to the bus station “Pajaritos” (which is also a metro station): Take the bus “Centropuerto” or “Turbus”, which leaves from the airport every 10 minutes. The trip to “Pajaritos” will take approximately 15 minutes and the price should be around 1.500 pesos.

From the bus station “Pajaritos” to the bus station Valparaíso: There are various bus companies which offer the trip “Santiago-Valparaíso” (for example Pullman, Cóndor, Turbus). The price should be around 5.000 pesos. The buses leave every 10-15 minutes, and the trip takes one hour and a half.

Please pay attention to the following:  On Saturday, December 8, the most important religious celebration from Chile will take place in Casablanca, a small city between Santiago and Valparaíso. The highway Santiago – Valparaíso will be closed from the evening of Friday December 7 until the midnight  of Saturday December 8. The buses usually take an alternative route through La Calera, this is why in this case you should consider a bus trip of 3 hours.

Accommodation in Valparaíso:

The participants of the conference will be hosted in the hotel Ibis of Valparaíso,


located next to the Sotomayor Square, and at the foot of the hills Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepción, some of the main tourist attractions of the city.


In Sotomayor Square you can find tour guides for tips, which guide tourist groups safely through the streets, alleyways and staircases of the city.


Conference Venue:

The conference will take place in the Mathematics Institute of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (http://ima.ucv.cl/), located in Blanco Viel 596, Cerro Barón. The Institute is at around 45 minutes walking distance from the conference hotel. Alternatively, you can take the metro from the hotel to the station Barón, then walk for 20 minutes. In this case we recommend taking the ascensor (funicular) Barón, located next to the Jumbo Supermarket. A third alternative would be to take a taxi (US$8, 15 mins). There are other options like buses (507) or “colectivos”, however we invite you to explore them only after you get familiar with the city.


The registration will take place on Monday, December 10, between 09:00 and 10:00 am. Please bring with you:

  • boarding pass (original)
  • passport

Conference Dinner :

We are organizing a conference dinner on Thursday, December 13, at 20:00, at the Yacht Club of Recreo, Viña del Mar (http://www.yachtclubdechile.cl/Yacht_Club_de_Chile/Social.html). The price is 30.000 chilean pesos.

valpo4The city-port of Valparaíso is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located 111.8 km west of Santiago.  It is part of the Greater Valparaíso urban area (803,683 inhabitants) which also includes the neighbouring towns of Viña del MarConcónQuilpué and Villa Alemana.

The nearest airport is Santiago International Airport (SCL).

Nicknamed “The Jewel of the Pacific”, Valparaíso was declared a world heritage site based upon its improvised urban design and unique architecture in 2003. Built upon dozens of steep hillsides overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Valparaíso boasts a labyrinth of streets and cobblestone alleyways, embodying a rich architectural and cultural legacy.

3531198463_68846f1299During Valparaíso’s golden age (1848–1914), the city received large numbers of immigrants, primarily from Europe. The immigrant communities left a unique imprint on the city’s noteworthy architecture. Each community built its own churches and schools, while many also founded other noteworthy cultural and economic institutions. The largest immigrant communities came from Britain, Germany, and Italy, each developing their own hillside neighbourhood, preserved today as National Historic Districts or “Zonas Típicas.”

Nightlife activities in Valparaíso are claimed to be among the best in the country. Sailors and students alike favour the harbour sector due to the various traditional bars and nightclubs. A vivid guide to Valparaíso can be found in the novels of Cayetano Brule, the private detective who lives in a Victorian house, in the picturesque Paseo Gervasoni in Cerro Concepción.

valpo4Valparaíso is considered the graffiti capital of Chile. Amazing murals created by talented artists can be viewed on the streets, alleyways and stairways all over Valparaíso.
