Abstract : The Fourth SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems was designed to provide a forum for the continued interdisciplinary development of nonlinear dynamics and its applications. The conference was a great success. We had unprecedented attendance of over 592, including many of the leaders in the field from around the world, and from disciplines ranging from oceanography to molecular biology to quantum chaos. There was a sense of excitement in the air, perhaps because dynamical systems theory is finally living up to its promise to have a genuine impact on applied fields, and also because of our emerging understanding of the mathematical connections among many of the phenomena being studied.
