International Conference on Asymptotic Analysis


Infinite-dimensional Dynamical Systems

June 19 - 22, 2009

City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong


In recent years, there have been great advances and developments in asymptotics including the study of exponential asymptotics and the Riemann-Hilbert approach, and of localized reaction diffusion equation with metastable behavior. Meanwhile, there has also existed significant progress in the theory of infinite-dimensional dynamical systems with many new results being obtained and various new applications being found.  Such a fast advancing feature requires mathematicians in the related areas to update and refresh their knowledge and to keep good pace with the development.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together top researchers in these two areas to expose their recent new results, to exchange their new ideas, to explore new methods and new applications, to discuss future directions of research, and to initiate possible research collaborations.

How to get there

City University


By Airport Express and Mass Transit Railway (MTR)


You can ride on the Airport Express Line from the Airport Station to Tsing Yi Station, and then change to MTR from Tsing Yi Station to Kowloon Tong, where the University is located. The single journey fare of an adult from the Airport Station to Tsing Yi Station is HK$60 and from Tsing Yi Station to Kowloon Tong Station, HK$7.5. Routes and fares can be found at




Get off at Kowloon Tong station. Follow the signs to City University (Exit C2), which leads to the Festival Walk shopping centre. Go up to Level LG1 and find the escalator next to Shop LG1-10, which will take you to one end of the CityU underpass.


If you take the train that goes directly to Hong Kong from mainland China, you will get off first at the Hung Hum Station. You can then change to the MTR and get off at the Kowloon Tong Station for CityU. If you are coming from the direction of Lo Wu, a concrete bridge will take you into the Festival Walk shopping centre.


By Taxi


Ask the taxi driver to take you to City University of Hong Kong.


It may be helpful to give the Taxi Driver the Address of City University in Chinese.
