Venue: Polo scientifico e tecnologico “Fabio Ferrari”, Povo 1 Building – Room A107
The field of the workshop “Network dynamics and complexity” encompasses a number of research areas that are currently very relevant for Physics, Biology, Neuroscience and Psychology.
In Physics, an important underlying aim is the identification of universal laws (e.g., scaling laws) that apply across very different systems; pursuing this goal requires the development of robust time-series analysis and system modelling tools.
In Neuroscience there is an interest in modelling and characterizing the complex relationships between brain networks in health and in disease, at rest or in response to external stimuli.
In Psychology, a main research topic consists in understanding whether fixed network structures mediate function or whether different functions instantiate qualitatively different networks.
Goal of the workshop
This workshop aims to bring together local researchers working on network structure, dynamics and complexity.
The format of the workshop is tailored to promote informal discussion and brainstorming and, possibly, new collaborations on common research areas.
|14.30-16.30||FIRST SESSION - Chair and opening remarks: Leonardo Ricci|
|17.00-19.00||SECOND SESSION - Chair and closing remarks: Uri Hasson|
The workshop is addressed to Principal Investigators of the University of Trento with an active work related to complexity and network science.
Advanced graduate students, PhD students, Post-Docs and research fellows are also invited to participate.
The registrations are closed (registration deadline: May 12, 2016).
