3rd CRITICS Workshop and Summer School, Univ. de Valladolid

3rd CRITICS Workshop and Summer School

University of Valladolid, Spain
Summer School: 4th September - 8th September 2017
Workshop: 11th September - 15th September 2017

Recent results by mathematicians and scientists working in different fields of applications suggest the existence of generic early-warning signals that could indicate for a large class of systems if a tipping point is being approached. The focus of this workshop will be on extensions of the bifurcation theory for nonlinear systems to nonautonomous (deterministic or random) dynamical systems.

Our workshop aims to capture the very recent developments in this rapidly developing field and to bring together some of the leading applied scientists and mathematicians currently starting to shape a theory for critical transitions in complex systems, with the aim to exchange ideas, promote inter-disciplinary research and develop international collaborations.

Right before the workshop, a summer school for doctoral students, young researchers, but also open to interested senior researchers, will take place. It consists of four

- Random Dynamical Systems, Jeroen Lamb (Imperial College London).
- Statistical Mechanics of the Climate System, Valerio Lucarini (University of Reading)
- Chaos: why, where and how much, Carles Simó (University of Barcelona).
- Biological cell state transitions characterized by dynamical systems theory, Alexander Skupin (University of Luxembourg).

For more details about school and workshop, including registration, invited speakers, sumbission of abstracts, etc., see the workshop website

The deadline for registration is August 7, 2017.
The deadline to submit an abstract is July 31, 2017.

This meeting is part of the activities of the doctoral training network CRITICS: a world-leading European research consortium made up of eight European partners. It provides a unique multidisciplinary training environment for fifteen postgraduates for project work lasting for 36 months. You can find more information at on the CRITICS network.

The organizing and the scientific committees invite you to join and enjoy the picturesque capital of Castile and León, Valladolid, in the early days of September, sure that such a visit will provide a unique framework for meeting interesting people and a scientifically productive involvement.
