LANET 2017 1ST LATIN AMERICAN CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX NETWORKS

albert   |  events   |   25/09/2017

The aim of LANET is to provide with a forum to join all scientists who are somehow related to the research onNetwork Science in Latin America. 

The rapid growth of the field of Network Science in the last two decades has manifested in the form of schools, workshops and conferences in Latin America. However, the creation of LANET as a stable and periodic forum devoted to Network Science will further spur the formation of research groups interested in the field and help to establish it as a discipline across Latin American Universities and Research Institutions. 

The first edition will be organized by the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Puebla, México) and, tentatively, we plan LANET to have a periodicity of two years with different locations in Latin America.




Topical problems of nonlinear wave physics

albert   |  events   |   22/07/2017

This meeting is a continuation of the previous symposia "Topical Problems of Nonlinear Wave Physics-2003, 2005, 2008, 2014" that attracted leading experts from around the world. More info.

The upcoming Symposium will be devoted to recent progress in the interrelated fields of the physics of nonlinear waves with applications to systems of different origin.

The Symposium will include three parallel Topical Conferences:

  • NWP-1: Nonlinear Dynamics and Complexity
  • NWP-2: Lasers with High Peak and High Average Power
  • NWP-3: Nonlinear Phenomena in the Atmosphere and Ocean

and two Workshops:

  • Magnetic Fields in Laboratory High Energy Density Plasmas (LaB)
  • Key technological issues in construction and exploitation of 100 PW class lasers

Each Conference will feature oral (invited and contributed) talks and poster sessions. Besides, some plenary lectures on interrelated topics are planned. Oral and poster presentations will be selected by the Program Committee Members by results of the considered submissions. Further details on the program will be given in the Call for Papers.




ESCUELA INTERNACIONAL DE VERANO: Tendencias en Analytics: Ciencia de Redes. Bogota, Colombia

albert   |  events   |   27/06/2017

Este curso está diseñado para entender cómo el estudio de las interacciones entre los individuos permite explicar comportamientos colectivos e incluso a veces predecirlos. Utilizaremos el análisis de redes como herramienta para estudiar sociedades en distintos contextos. More info.

Tendencias, epidemias, noticias, rumores, son evidencia de que vivimos en una sociedad que está conectada. Día a día interactuamos con diferentes personas en entornos cambiantes haciendo que la información se propague, en algunos casos difundiéndose y en otros simplemente desapareciendo. Muchas veces, sin darnos cuenta somos no sólo partícipes, sino pieza fundamental para la difusión de ideas, virus, comportamientos y mensajes.
Para comprender nuestro rol, y el de nuestro entorno, debemos salir del convencional paradigma reduccionista donde las partes son tomadas en cuenta de manera aislada y entrar al paradigma complejo donde nuestras conexiones toman la misma y a veces mayor importancia que nosotros mismos. Es así como el todo puede llegar a ser mayor que la suma de sus partes.
Las ciencias de la complejidad han desarrollado herramientas eficientes para explicar y modelar los fenómenos que no son comprensibles si se examina el individuo por sí solo. En este curso vamos a estudiar una herramienta en específico: el análisis de redes, que se ha convertido incluso para muchos en una ciencia, ya que ha permitido encontrar causalidades en los fenómenos que emergen en la sociedad a partir de reglas individuales simples.
Hoy, con la creciente tendencia al uso del internet, es más fácil estudiar las redes sociales ya que las actividades quedan registradas en millones de datos que no desaparecen con el tiempo. Sin embargo, es importante aclarar que el análisis de redes no se limita al estudio de sistemas que ocurren por la web, las redes se pueden modelar incluso en otros seres vivos que no están conectados a internet, al menos por ahora. Así, la invitación es a analizar diferentes redes en distintos contextos y, a partir de datos reales, poder observar, explicar e incluso predecir tendencias y comportamientos colectivos.




Crossroads in Complex Systems

Albert Diaz Guilera   |  events   |   05/06/2017

The conference Crossroads in Complex Systems, will take place at IFISC, Mallorca (Spain), 5-8 June 2017, on occasion of the 10th anniversary of IFISC (Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems, UIB-CSIC) .
Thematic keynote, invited and contributed talks, a poster session, round-table discussions and a public event will contribute to a rich program. The conference aims to represent a broad spectrum of topics on Complex Systems as wide, at least, as the IFISC range of research lines.

COMPLENET'17 - 8TH CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX NETWORKS

Albert Diaz Guilera   |  projects   |   21/03/2017

The 8th International Conference on Complex Networks (CompleNet 2017) aims at bringing together researchers working on areas related to complex networks. In the past two decades scientific research has witnessed a  remarkable increase on studies in this field. Applied to problems that span from biology to computer sciences, from economics to social sciences, complex networks are becoming increasingly pervasive in many fields of science.  It is this interdisciplinary nature of the complex networks approach that the workshop is addressing.




Conference on Complex Systems 2016. Amsterdam

Albert Diaz Guilera   |  events   |   19/09/2016

The Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) has become a major venue for the Complex Systems community since 2003. After last year success in USA, we are now back in Europe. AMSTERDAM CCS 2016, will be the major international conference and event for complex systems and interdisciplinary science.
