Lake Como School on Advances in Complex Systems: from Ecology to Economics
22 Jul 2019 - 26 Jul 2019 • Como, Italy
This is the third school on Advances in Complex Systems. The first edition of the school took place in the summer of 2015 and the second edition in the summer of 2017. The scope of the school series is to present recent advances in complex systems discussing applications of statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium and disordered systems, theories of complex networks and other stochastic systems to different topics in materials science, social sciences, biology and biomedical research. The broad choice of interdisciplinary topics is designed to expose the students to some of the multiple facets of complex systems theory. The 2019 edition of the school will focus on inderdisciplinary and quantitative approaches that span from ecology to economics. The school is open to 40 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows working in complex systems and related fields.

The Mechanics of Cell Aggregates: Experiments and Models
03 Sep 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • Turin, Italy
The interest in cell aggregates is nowadays undergoing a strong acceleration because of the coincidence of technical advancements and experimental insights that excite theoretical challenges. In this respect, systems of great relevance are multicellular spheroids, where it is now possible to locally measure stress and fluid flow within the aggregate, thereby opening the path to quantitative theories to explain the role of mechanics in cell proliferation and motility. There is a well supported evidence that mechanical forces interfere with the development of solid tumors and arrest their proliferation. The coupling between cell mechanics, fluid flows, extra-cellular matrix and cell proliferation is however not trivial: malignant cells exhibit a complex rheology that accompanies an elusive mechanobiological feedback. Intriguingly, the role of fluid flows and stress is understood to be crucial in other cell aggregates, of completely different functionality: embryos exploit mechanics to generate shape and function, both in producing displacement such as lumen formation and in signaling cell-to-cell mutual positions and orientations.

Faraday Discussion — Quantum Effects in Complex Systems
11 Sep 2019 - 13 Sep 2019 • Coventry, United Kingdom
Royal Society of Chemistry
Given the rapid rate of development and broad application domains, the principal aim of this Faraday Discussion is to provide a snapshot of the current theoretical and experimental state-of-the-art in methods designed to interrogate and rationalize the role of quantum-mechanical effects in complex systems; simultaneously, this meeting will act as a new forum to discuss ideas which span the experimental/theoretical domains.
Large Scale Stochastic Dynamics
15 Sep 2019 - 21 Sep 2019 • Oberwolfach, Germany
Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO, Oberwolfach Research Institute for Mathematics)
CCS2019 — Conference on Complex Systems
30 Sep 2019 - 04 Oct 2019 • Singapore, Singapore
The Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) is the biggest and most important annual meeting of the international complex systems community. It comes under the auspices of the Complex Systems Society. Since its inception in 2004, CCS had always been Europe-based, but in 2015 & 2017, it moved to North & Latin America respectively.
nes2019 — New Trends in Nonequilibrium Stochastic Multistable Systems and Memristors
18 Oct 2019 - 21 Oct 2019 • Erice, Italy
The Conference, while focusing on memristors, fits the general context of complex systems, metastability, and the constructive role of noise in nonlinear systems. The Conference indeed brings together leading experts and research groups, working on the development of memristors as building blocks for quantum and neuromorphic computing, but it is also addressed to scientists interested in the challenging problems connected with the dynamics of nonequilibrium multistable systems and memristor devices, from both theoretical and experimental point of view. The Conference will be a discussion forum to promote new ideas in this promising research field, concerning stochastic nonlinear models, phase transitions phenomena in memristive devices, control of memory lifetime, and memcomputing. The Course “New Trends in Nonequilibrium Stochastic Multistable Systems and Memristors” belongs to the International Workshop Series on New Trends in Nonequilibrium Systems.

Active Matter at the Frontier
06 Apr 2020 - 09 Apr 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Active matter is a class of non-equilibrium, many-body systems that consist of individual energy-transducing components. The collective dynamics of such active entities underlies phenomena on scales from the molecular to the macroscopic, and it includes both living and non-living systems. The field of active matter focuses on understanding how the collective behaviors of internally driven components can give rise to patterns of motion and stress on large scales. While active matter systems violate detailed balance at the molecular scale, it remains unclear how such non-equilibrium dynamics manifests itself and can be quantified at meso- and macroscopic scales. In particular, it is interesting to investigate, given a particular set of microscopic elementary units, what range of possible macroscopic patterns, structures, dynamics and functionalities can be realized. The conference will bring together experimental and theoretical researchers from a broad range of disciplines to discuss recent advances that have transformed active matter into a rapidly growing field that spans diverse disciplines, ranging from physics to biology, to materials science and engineering.
Random Matrix EurAsia 2020
04 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Singapore, Singapore
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Random matrix theory is an active branch of probability. It has important applications in statistics, wireless communication and physics, and is closely related to other areas of mathematics, like representation theory, integrable systems, combinatorics, and complex analysis.
COMPLEXIS 2020 — 5th International Conference on Complexity, Future Information Systems and Risk
08 May 2020 - 09 May 2020 • Prague, Czech Republic
The International Conference on Complexity, Future Information Systems and Risk, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing innovative views on all aspects of Complex Information Systems, in different areas such as Informatics, Telecommunications, Computational Intelligence, Biology, Biomedical Engineering and Social Sciences. Information is pervasive in many areas of human activity – perhaps all – and complexity is a characteristic of current Exabyte-sized, highly connected and hyper dimensional, information systems.
Chromosomes: Organization, Function and Dynamics
22 Jun 2020 - 25 Jun 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Continuing rapid development in the field of chromatin biology has lately attracted enormous interest among biologists, physicists and mathematicians. Recently, the static structure of the folded genome inside the cell nucleus has been determined with increasingly high resolution. Special features of genome folding, such as loops, A/B compartments and chromosome territories, were identified and have inspired models rooted in polymer physics. Studies of the roles of these features in gene regulation and other biological processes are currently ongoing. In addition, research on chromatin dynamics has shown that the genome moves in space and time, thus these structural features might be dynamic, too. Currently, it is not clear how to reconcile the static picture with the dynamic nature of the genome. Following the recent surge in activity on both the biology and physics fronts, this conference aims to provide a platform that would facilitate an interdisciplinary exchange, cultivate new ideas and identify new frontiers.
