Predicting Transitions in Complex Systems

International Workshop
23 - 27 April 2018

Complex dynamical systems can show sudden transitions to very diverse regimes including dangerous ones such as desertification or epileptic seizures. The workshop will focus on new advances in data-driven approaches for identifying,  characterizing and predicting regime transitions, and promoting cross-fertilization across disciplines.

Topics include

  • ecology
  • biophysics
  • data analysis
  • econophysics
  • brain dynamics
  • social networks
  • extreme events
  • complex systems
  • climate dynamics   
  • critical transitions
  • information theory
  • nonlinear dynamics
  • time-series analysis   
  • stochastic processes
  • early-warning signals
