2020 IEEE WORKSHOP ON COMPLEXITY IN ENGINEERING
Florence, October 21-23,2020
COMPENG is a series of international workshops founded in 2010 aimed at providing a forum for experts and professionals working on the latest developments in complexity science and its application in an engineering perspective. The topics of the workshop round on complex systems and engineering, as Data and data-driven systems, Biophysics, Bio-inspired robotics and biomedical engineering, Complex systems and networks, Control in sensor and actuator networks, Communication and Transportation, Ecosystems and climate, Electronic and opto-electronic systems, Laser dynamics, nonlinear optics and opto-mechanics, Machine Learning, Neurotechnology and neuroscience, Nonlinear dynamics and stochastic processes, Smart grids, and Time-series analysis and modelling.
Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline —including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others — and the study of “network science” has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.
The school “Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications” offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.
