Call for Participation – Complexity and the City

[SICC] Complexity and The City – 13th SICC international tutorial workshop “Topics in Nonlinear Dynamics”
The 13th SICC international tutorial workshop “Topics in Nonlinear Dynamics” will be held at the  Politecnico di Torino, 29-30 October 2018. This year, the focus is on  the fascinating theme of “Complexity and the city”.

Registration to the 13TH SICC International Tutorial Workshop “TOPICS   IN NONLINEAR DYNAMICS” can be done at this address

Phd Students and Junior researchers will be given the opportunity to share their research results to the other participants and the audience at large through a dynamical and fun presentation style: the PechaKucha.  20 timed slides shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes 40 seconds in total), a unique, fun, and challenging way to communicate your research
and receive feedback!

Submit your talk proposal in the form of a one-page abstract to WITHIN SEPTEMBER 30. It’s going to be fun!


The workshop is the 13th of a series of tutorial workshops annually organized to explore the emergence of new research fields in which modeling, analysis and control of nonlinear and complex systems play a role of growing importance. These workshops have been traditionally devoted to an interdisciplinary audience with particular attention to PhD students and young researchers. The theme of this year is “Complexity and The City” with a unique focus on interactions, mobility,
epidemics, information and misinformation spreading, and many other complex phenomena typical of urban environments.

The workshop will gather scholars, students, and practitioners for two days of presentations and debates around complex systems science and its interplay with urban environments. A series of plenary lectures from renowned scholars is planned, while PhD students and young researchers will have dedicated sessions to present their research activity in an effective and appealing way. Social events will foster interaction and creation of collaboration opportunities.
