This conference aims at gathering specialists in all the fundamental areas of pure and applied mathematics related to fractal geometry, from harmonic analysis and signal processing to number theory, passing by potential theory and PDE's on fractals.
It is held in honor of Jacques Peyrière who achieved significant contributions in several of these fields. In particular he was one of the pionneers both in the fine study of singular measures generated by iterated multiplications like Riesz products and Mandelbrot multiplicative cascades, and in the connections between fractal sets and combinatorics on words.
During the last twenty years he also contributed to the development of the relations between tunisian and french mathematical communities, especially in Monastir. This is why this conference takes place in this beautiful city.

New Last minute information:

      There has been some modifications on the program. The new program is now available.

      The excursion consists in the visit of El Jem, a historical site (from the Roman empire), which
      is located 1 hour from Monastir (see El Jem on Wikipedia). The fee is 38 Dinars, and must be
      paid in Tunisian Dinars
the first day of the conference (or the day of your arrival).  

      The price of the conference dinner is 55 Dinars and must be paid in Tunisian Dinars the first
      day of the conference.

New Practical Informations:

The easiest way to reach Monastir is to fly directly to the Monastir Airport. Once arrived at the airport, the nice organizing committee will welcome you and help you find the Hotel!!!

For those who can only fly to Tunis, here are some informations to go from Tunis to Monastir (and to the Thalassa hotel):

A tunisian collaborator of the organizing committee will welcome the participants of the conference at the Tunis Airport on Friday 7th. This collaborator will help the participants to withdraw some local money and to find appropriate taxis. In order to go to the Thalassa Hotel, two options are available:
  1.  Take directly a taxi from the Tunis airport to the Thalassa hotel. A taxi car can take 3 or 4 participants (depending on the size of the luggages...). The price is approximately 120 Dinars (~70 Euros), no matter how many passengers in the car. The traject lasts 2 hours.
  2. First take a taxi from the airport to the "louage" station (which is located at the "place de Moncef Bey"). This traject costs ~5 Dinars and lasts 25 minutes. A louage is a sort of collective taxi. Once arrived at the station, you take a louage to Monastir, and indicate to the driver that you want to go to the Thalassa Hotel. The price is 10 Dinars, and it takes around 1h40 to get to the Thalassa Hotel.

The current rate change is 1€=1,75 Tunisian Dinar.
