Non-linear ordinary and partial differential equations describe a large number of physical phenomena and geometrical problems. An effective method to handle them is associated to `integrable systems' providing means to find exact solutions or to analyse the solutions without knowing them. Our conference will deal with finite-dimensional integrable systems, the most classical part of the general theory. Recently, new methods have been developed, based on branches of mathematics (and physics) such as complex analysis, symplectic geometry, representation theory, computer algebra, general relativity, etc. The conference will bring together experts in mathematics and mathematical physics in this rapidly evolving field: integrable geodesic flows, integrable systems on Lie algebras, obstructions to integrability, symplectic and Poisson geometry, separation of variables, discrete integrable systems, quantum integrability, applications to physics.
