Workshop Synchronization and Transport in Complex Systems

26 March @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm

The LABEX MME DII and the Institute for Advanced Studies of the University of Cergy-Pontoise promote one day meeting on collective phenomena emerging in complex systems within the activity of the Thematic Cycle on Complexity “2018”

The meeting will address subjects in areas ranging from statistical physics to biology, from applied mathematics to computational neuroscience. In particular, the speakers will present specific talks on active matter (e.g. on cell migration and on dynamics of bacterial suspensions), as well as on neural systems (on seizure propagation in the brain and on synchronization of neural networks) and on transport in oscillator chains and in random graphs. The presentation of the subjects will allow participants from different disciplines to profit of the proposed talks.

The meeting is open to all the interested PhD students and researchers, however registration is mandatory within March, 15th 2018 
a buffet will be offered to the first 30 registered participants: please, register here

For the late registered participants, a nearby cantine offers lunches at moderate prices from 11.30 to 13.30 : Cafétéria de Neuville , Mail Gay-Lussac – 95031 Cergy-Pontoise
