International Conference "Instabilities and Control of Excitable Networks: From macro- to nano-systems"
On behalf of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), National Research Center for Hematology (NRCH), and the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce that the International Conference "Instabilities and Control of Excitable Networks: From macro to nano-systems" will be held on May 25-30, 2012.
The conference will be held in the main building of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in Dolgoprudny campus.
The conference will be devoted to the problems of complex excitable network dynamics in physiology, biomedicine, physics, chemistry and social systems.
- Instabilities in far from equilibrium excitable network dynamics
- Pattern formation in network-organized systems
- Control of threshold and kinetic cascade
- Avalanche-like phenomena
- Conceptual items and application to natural and social systems
The main goal of the conference is to advance interdisciplinary research and creative new cross-disciplinary links in Russia and abroad. We hope to bring together a diverse energetic group of researchers at different stages of their research careers, working in the field of self-organization in various systems, engineering of excitable biological tissues and control of excitable networks.
