In contrast to the forward procedure of analyzing complex systems, we consider inverse problems: Topical questions include how to infer structure and models from multi-dimensional time series and how to design networks for a desired function. Progress relies on the rapidly increasing availability of time series data and novel tools for analyzing large data sets. The event shall bridge theory and method development with applications from biology and physics to computer science and engineering.
