The second PANDA (Patterns, Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications) meeting of 2014 will be held on Tuesday 3 June 2014 in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Bath. The meeting is funded by the LMS and forms part of a network involving Bath, Leeds, Nottingham and Surrey.

The morning talks will be of a pedagogical nature and aimed generally at post-docs and research students in applied mathematics.
