NetDyn 2024: International Workshop on Network Dynamics, August 26, 2024.


Location: Room: MH:333. Centre for Mathematical Science, Lund University, Sweden
Date/Time: Monday August 26, 2024, starting at 9.00. (Fika-to-Fika)

This 1-day workshop comprises a series of talks on network dynamical systems. We discuss recent advances in mathematics, but also keep a focus on applications in biology and technology, such as neuroscience, power grids, cognition and others. A special focus lies in the study of adaptive networks, i.e., where dynamics occur on both the nodes (vertices) and links (edges) on a network (graph) and may co-depend --- co-evolutionary networks in short.

The Network Network (TNN): This meeting is a networking and kickstart event. An important goal of the workshop is to connect researchers with interest in network theory and dynamics, inside and outside of Lund University together to create a platform to discuss theory and applications of networks and exchange ideas to collaborate. We will have a session to discuss possibilities for a continuation of regular activities related to networks and dynamical systems, such as a lecture series.

Registration/Questions: Please send an email with your name and institution to erik.martens 'AT' math.lth.se with SUBJECT: NetDyn2024

Programme and List of Speakers will be available shortly!

This is a joint meeting with the collaboration network MAThematical theory for CO-evolutionary DYNnamical networks (MatCoDyn)

International Workshop: Developing a mathematical theory for co-evolutionary dynamical networks, May 30-31, 2023


Location: MH:333, Matematikhuset, Centre for Mathematical Science, Lund University, Sweden
Date/Time: Tue May 30 and Wed May 31, 9.00-11.30 (break: 10.00-10.30)

The mini-workshop comprises of a series of talks on network dynamical systems spread over two half-days. Focus of the workshop is the study of adaptive networks, i.e., where dynamics occurs on both the nodes (vertices) and links (edges) on a network (graph) and may co-depend --- co-evolutionary networks in short. We discuss recent advances in the mathematical treatment and analysis in the finite and continuum limit descriptions (using graph operators) and applications in simplified as well as more realistic model applications, in particular, leaning towards applications in neuronal biological networks. Represented research fields include dynamical systems and bifurcation theory, graph theory, statistical physics, mathematical neuroscience, experimental neuroscience.

International Workshop: Oscillations, Transients and Fluctuations in Complex Networks (OTFCN), July 1-3, 2019



OTFCN Workshop Website

Networks pervade all areas in nature and technology, from statistical physics over engineering to biology, from small to large. Complex networks play a vital role in in our every-day lives, coordinating complex interactions on the level of cells, organisms and of society. Interacting units in such networks are for instance wind turbine generators, neurons, and pacemaker cells in the heart. Such systems may exhibit collective dynamics such as synchronization and thus serve functions such as information processing in the brain or robust delivery of power in the electric grid. Depending on the context, the emergence or destruction of collective behaviors may be desired or undesired. However, these systems must often operate in a non-steady, out-of-equilibrium state; in fact, they are constantly subject to varying levels of (stochastic) fluctuations and heterogeneities which may lead to non-uniform dynamic behaviors within the network. This interdisciplinary workshop gathers researchers from biology, technology, physics and mathematics to better understand how fluctuations and transients spread through networks and affect their dynamics. We discuss the state-of the-art and emerging problems concerning dynamic interactions in complex dynamic networks, such as power grid dynamics, transport networks, brain/neural dynamics, systems biology from cell to body level, and the mathematical/physical theory of oscillation and network dynamics.

This is a collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen.

International Workshop: Rhythms in Complex Networks - Theory Meets Experiment, September 1-3, 2014


To be held at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

This international workshop brings together theoretical, mathematical, but also experimental and computational researchers who are working on various topics related to oscillations in biological systems. The focus is on mathematical modeling and experimental phenomena around biological rhythms. The conference will be held in the historical halls of the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen. The event is hosted by the Dynamical Systems Interdisciplinary Network, University of Copenhagen, which is funded by the UCPH Excellence Programme for Interdisciplinary Research and the Center for Models of life, Niels Bohr Institute.
