More details:

Many complex systems are characterized by multi-level properties that make the study of their dynamics and of their emerging phenomena a daunting task. The huge amount of data available in modern sciences is expected to promote rapid progress in these areas, even though the nature of the data varies. Given the heterogeneity of the data, topological features often clearly convey important qualitative features of a system, while retaining the quantitative rigour.
This workshop aims at offering an up-to-date view on the study of complex multi-level systems via topological methods such as persistent (co)homology and techniques from topological dynamics.

We invite contributions in the form of extended abstracts not exceeding 4 pages (excluding references).
The topics include but are not limited to:

  *   Mesoscopic analysis of complex networks
  *   Topological foundations of complex systems
  *   Applications of topological methods to complex systems
  *   New topological techniques

The workshop welcomes any relevant contribution in the area of computational/applied topology and applications of topological techniques to understanding complex systems. These include new application areas, new techniques to specific applications or new interpretations of existing results.
There will be no formal proceedings though the abstracts will be made available online.

The authors of the accepted abstracts will be notified by e-mail by August 14th 2013. All participants in the satellite have to register for ECCS'13 here<>.
