17th SICC International Tutorial Workshop “Topics in nonlinear dynamics” 
NONLINEAR DYNAMICS IN OPTICS: PRESENT AND NEW PERSPECTIVES”
July, 20th 2022, Arcetri (Florence), Italy
 
Optical systems have always been a fertile field for nonlinear dynamics, historically initiated with the Lorenz system, born to investigate hydrodynamic instabilities but formally equivalent to lasers equations. If, on the one hand, nonlinear dynamics in optics has been mainly focused on semiconductor lasers, on the other hand we have seen a growing interest in nonlinear optical media such as optical fibers, liquid crystals and liquid crystal light valves, and photonic crystals for investigation of optical pattern formation.

1st IFAC Workshop on Control of Complex Systems, COSY 2022

1st IFAC Workshop on Control of Complex Systems, COSY 2022

1st IFAC Workshop on Control of Complex Systems, COSY 2022

The 1st IFAC Workshop on Control of Complex Systems (COSY 2022) will be held Thursday to Friday, November 24-25, 2022 in Bologna, Italy. 

COSY 2022 aims to be the first of a series of IFAC Workshops on Control of Complex Systems. The workshop will gather academics and professionals from the control community who share the interest for complex systems, offering them a forum where to discuss current research developments, open problems, emerging structural properties and methodologies.

The main focus of the workshop is on the study of structural properties of systems which consist of the interconnection of a number of subsystems and which are characterized by the complexity due to one or more of the following features: lack of knowledge about the system dynamics; perturbations,  disturbances and changes of the external demand; uncertainty of the interconnection topology; hybrid or heterogeneous nature of the sub-processes; structural adaptation to moving goals; variable environment; large dimensionality; constrained variables and communication constraints. Examples of complex systems are evolving systems, switching systems, impulsive systems, networks of agents, and, more generally, systems of systems and cyber-physical systems. Applications are found in modelling and control of natural processes (e.g., in biology and genetics), social sciences dynamics (e.g., in community networks studies) and man-made processes (e.g., in engineering design, manufacturing, networks and communications, power distribution, management). 

Submissions to COSY 2022 are solicited in the form of contributed papers and invited tracks/sessions (through IFAC Papercept submission system). The submission deadline for invited track/session proposals is May 15, 2022. The submission deadline for contributed papers and invited papers is May 31, 2022.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN COMPLEX NETWORKS

CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX SYSTEMS (CCS) SATELLITE MEETING
October, 19 2022, PALMA DE MALLORCA
HYBRID SATELLITE

The scope of this event is therefore to push the research on the cutting-edge problem of applying neural network techniques to the interpretation of complex systems’ dynamics, with a particular focus on real world applications. Specifically, we intend to stimulate the discussion on several actual and decisive topics, ranging from the evolution of physical ecosystems to the study of biological systems’ interactions (for example, in the human immune system, for genome-transcriptome-proteome data), from the analysis of communications to social networks and human behavior. From a more theoretical point of view, we would like to discuss the recent developments in the mathematical theory and application of networks and networked dynamical processes, where the interactions among nodes cannot be decomposed into pairwise interactions. Applications of such approaches include analyzing persistent homology structure of data represented by higher-order networks, and uncovering new collective behavior and synchronization patterns that emerge from higher-order interactions. At the same time, multi-layer and modular networks have also found their applications in modeling biological and artificial neural networks and in addressing questions like how network structures affect collective behavior.

In this satellite, we are inviting researchers, many of whom have worked on both machine learning and complex systems. The goal is to bring together the scientists having expertise in traditional approaches in studying complex systems and networks and expert machine learning scientists for exchange of ideas, and formation of a platform for future collaboration, as well as to deliberate upon open problems in the complex systems and network science which can be addressed by machine learning techniques.

Complex networks: theory, methods, and applications (6th edition)

Complex networks: theory, methods, and applications (6th edition)

Complex networks: theory, methods, and applications (6th edition)

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.

Computer technology is rapidly changing in the last decades. Besides the general progression in multi-core and many-core designs there is a strong demand for emerging nano-scale technologies with low power dissipation, intelligent, bio-inspired machines, massively-parallel architectures with learning capabilities, and memristive systems. Moreover, sensing and analyzing the visual world requires special sensors and processors. Sensor-processor arrays can solve problems from early image processing up to decision making. CNNA 2021 will provide a forum for the presentation of latest results and exploration of future directions in the context of Cellular Nanoscale Networks and their Applications.

Controlling Delayed Dynamics: Advances in Theory, Methods and Applications

Controlling Delayed Dynamics: Advances in Theory, Methods and Applications

Controlling Delayed Dynamics: Advances in Theory, Methods and Applications

Delays are ubiquitous in engineering and natural sciences, e.g., communication delays in control devices and complex networks or maturation and gestation delays in population dynamics. The inclusion of past history in the time evolution adds nontrivial complexities with respect to ordinary systems, balancing the advantage of dealing with more realistic models. Equations involving delays generate dynamical systems of infinite dimension, asking for advanced tools and methods in the background mathematical analysis, the numerical treatment, the development, design and optimization of control strategies. Eventually, the comprehension of fundamental issues like stability of equilibria and other invariants is crucial, especially for varying or uncertain parameters.
The school brings together strong and up-to-date contributions in the field of time delay systems, concerning analytical, numerical and application aspects, under the paradigm of control theory. It aims at discussing the most recent advances in these different contexts, focusing also on their interdisciplinary connections. Analysis, methods, control strategies and applications will be illustrated, starting from rapid introductions of the basics, reaching a state-of-the-art level by evolving the classic approaches into modern perspectives.
