CAMTP home 9th International Summer School/Conference
at the University of Maribor, Slovenia
22 June - 6 July 2014


The structure of the School & Conference this year will be quite similar to the previous one, the 8th, in 2011.

In the first week we shall have mainly school programme consisting of the following five lecture courses (one hour = 60 minutes):

  1. Stefano Boccaletti, Firenze, Italy, 7 hours: Complex networks: Structure and dynamics

  2. Tassos Bountis, Patras, Greece, 5 hours: Mathematical modeling of complex systems

  3. Anna Carbone, Torino, Italy, 7 hours: Challenges in Complex Systems: in particular in socio/economic sciences

  4. Predrag Cvitanovic, Atlanta, USA, 10 hours: Introduction to nonlinear dynamics

  5. Thomas Guhr, Duisburg-Essen, Germany, 5 hours: Introduction to econophysics

The abstracts of the lecture courses are appended below and at the end of the information brochure on page 27.

In the second week we shall have the conference programme, but nevertheless the lectures will still be at the colloquium level, thus including a good introduction for the students, nonspecialists and general physics audience. The detailed programme will be set up in the middle of May 2014.

The session for short reports (contributed talks) presented by the participants will be mainly on Saturday 28 July 2014 in the morning until lunch time. The posters will be on display during the entire period of the School/Conference, that is two weeks.
