Unique opportunity for young scientists
The Winter Workshop on Complex Systems gathers young researchers from all over the world for discussing and working on complexity science. The main goal of the event is to engage participants in novel research projects. Apart from extensive work during the workshop, WWCS projects are often continued afterwards. Scientific contact network built during the workshop can last for years. The upcoming event in Zakopane will be the 5th edition of the WWCS. Previous workshops were organised in Belgium, Spain, Serbia and Netherlands.

“The most Alpine of all Polish National Parks. It is among the world’s 30 recommended national parks according to CNN. By European standards, it is a relatively small national park, covering an area of 211,000 square kilometers. Yet, its Alpine character and rich landscape each year attract a record number of tourists. The Park is a natural habitat of endemic animal species, such as the Tatra chamois, marmot, bear, lynx, wildcat and wolf. Located at the foothills of the Tatra Mountains, Zakopane offers a wide range of accommodation facilities and an impressive skiing infrastructure.” – www.polska.pl
Chiara Poletto is a researcher at INSERM (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) in Paris. She also worked at the Computational Epidemiology Laboratory, ISI Foundation, Torino (Italy). Her research interests include emerging pathogens and disease ecology. She applies network physics and complex system approaches to reach a theoretical understanding of the interplay between human behaviour and infection propagation, using data-driven computational models.
Pere Colet is a Full Professor at the Spanish National Research Council working at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems IFISC (Spain). He is also an associate professor at the University of the Balearic Islands. He was a Fulbright postdoctoral fellow at School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include stochastic processes, non-linear dynamics, synchronization, pattern formation, noise-sustained structures, dynamics of localized structures, coupled systems with multiple delays, human mobility, socio-technical systems.
Piotr Fronczak is an Assistant Professor at Faculty of Physics at Warsaw University of Technology. He works in the Physics of Complex Systems Division. His research interests include statistical physics, theory of phase transitions, deterministic chaos, nonlinear dynamics, interdisciplinary applications of physics – complex networks, econo- and sociophysics, medical physics, physics in ecology, genetic algorithms.
Fabrizio Lillo is a Full Professor of Mathematical Methods for Economics and Finance at the University of Bologna (Italy). Formerly he has been an Associate Professor of Mathematical Finance at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa (Italy). He has been also an External Faculty and Professor (2009-2012) at the Santa Fe Institute (USA). His research interests include market micro-structure and high frequency finance, systemic risk, financial networks, statistical mechanics and air traffic management.
