Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline —including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others — and the study of “network science” has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.
The school “Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications” offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.
The 9th International Scientific Conference on Physics and Control (PhysCon 2019) will be held from 8th to 11th July 2019 in Saratov, Russia. The conference will focus on the borderland between Physics and Control with emphasis on both theory and applications. Topics will include (but not limited to) Nonlinear dynamics, Controlled systems in physics, Dynamics and control of complex networks, Self-organization and complexity, Micro and nano-technologies, Control in thermodynamics, Communication and transportation, Environmental and earth sciences, Control of ecosystems and climate, Mathematical physics, Chemical process control, Social networks and policies, Biology and medicine applications, and Engineering systems and design.
