October 14 - October 17, 1999, Kazimierz Dolny, Poland

Workshop proceedings

Pictures form Workshop


The purpose of the CSNSS'99 workshop is to bring together multidisciplinary groups of scientists working on applications of complex systems and nonlinear dynamics in physics, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, sociology, economy and finance. The workshop will be a continuation of the series of similar meetings that took place in Hungary (Matrafured 1995, Tata 1996 and Budapest 1997) and it is intended to provide a forum to report research, discuss emerging topics and gain new insights into:

  • stochastic models of financial markets and option pricing
  • collective character of opinion formation processes
  • tests for determinism and nonlinear models of economical phenomena
  • nonlinear econometrics
  • synergetic and thermodynamical studies of socio-economical systems
  • chaos in biology and medicine
  • nonlinear models in physics and chemistry
  • control of deterministic chaos.

A key motivation is to provide a common ground for an open dialogue as well as for reporting research without favouring any particular research constituency nor any specific way of modelling or issue in this area. CSNSS'99 will seek to further the meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas between physicists, chemists, mathematicians, finance experts, economists and sociologists.

The total number of participants will be limited to about 25-30 persons.


You can register and submit an abstract:
