The meeting was styled as an "annual informal workshop" and was sponsored by the La Jolla Institute. Invited talks were for 60 minutes, and contributed "communications" were 15 minutes (10 minutes for applications received after the deadline of 1982 December 6). Subjects were to be: "NONLINEAR DYNAMICS, CHAOTIC BEHAVIOR, Mappings of the Interval and the Plane, Classical Mechanics, Turbulence, Quantum Aspects of Chaotic Behavior, Arnold Diffusion, Invariant Tori, Strange Attractors, etc." The single session was to begin at 0900 and run until 1800, with 1230-1330 and 1800-2000 breaks for meals. Some invited talks were to occur in the evening sessions.
The meeting was to be held at the Sheraton Inn-Airport on Harbor Island. Registration fees were advertised as $25, and daily catered lunch service was $24 for the duration of the meeting.
The meeting chairman was Robert HG HELLEMAN of the La Jolla Institute and Twente University of Technology.
