PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL
FOR PAPERS - CSNSS'01
INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP on
COMPLEX SYSTEMS in NATURAL and SOCIAL SCIENCES (CSNSS'01)
October 18 - October 21, 2001, Toruń ( Torun ) ,
PURPOSE OF CSNSS'01 WORKSHOP
The purpose of the CSNSS'01 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, Budapest
1997) and in Poland(Kazimierz
Dolny 1999, Zakopane 2000)
and it is intended to provide a forum to report research,
discuss emerging topics and gain new insights into:
- nonlinear models in physics and chemistry
- stochastic models of financial markets and option
- collective character of opinion formation
- tests for determinism and nonlinear models of
- nonlinear econometrics
- synergetic and thermodynamical studies of
- models of bank bankrupties
- time series analysis.
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'01
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 30-35 persons.
