Villa del Grumello, Como, Italy

The Center for Complexity and Biosystems organises the second school on Advances in Complex Systems in Como. The first edition of the school took place in the summer of 2015 The scope of the school series is to present recent advances in complex systems discussing applications of statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium and disordered systems, theories of complex networks and other stochastic systems to different topics in materials science, social sciences, biology and biomedical research. The broad choice of interdisciplinary topics is designed to expose the students to some of the multiple facets of complex systems theory. The 2017 edition of the school will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to tissue regeneration, chromatin conformations and telomeres, bio-inspired materials, protein aggregation and complex networks in health sciences.

Lecturers: L. Amaral, M. Ben Amar, N. Dokholian, J. Griffith, J. Holly, S. Huang, M. Labouesse, T. Liedl, F. MacKintosh, L. Mirny, G. Tiana, J. Urbach, A. Vespignani
