Short description of the event: 

The Advanced course on Central Configurations, Periodic Orbits and Beyond in Celestial Mechanics is a joint activity of the DANCE (Dinámica, Atractores y Nolinealidad: Caos y Estabilidad) Spanish network with with the CRM in the framework of the research programme Central Configurations, periodic orbits and Beyond.

It is the 11th winter school in Dynamical Systems of the DANCE network.

This series of winter schools aims at training their participants both theoretically and in applications in the field of the nonlinear science; with the aim that theory and applications enforce each other. This will be done in an atmosphere of informal discussion, interchange of ideas and critical discussion of results. Attention will be paid to the numerical and computational issues.

These winter schools should help the basic training of young researchers, whilst opening new fields for senior ones. As a byproduct, the courses are planned to receive official recognition in some doctorate programs. There will be a number of partial and full accommodation grants for young participants.
