 CoSyDy Workshop on "Phase Transitions in Socio-Economic Systems"
                       July 6th 2016
              School of Mathematical Sciences
              Queen Mary University of London

You are kindly invited to participate to the CoSyDy Workshop on "Phase
Transitions in Socio-Economic Systems", to take place at the School of
Mathematical Sciences, Queen mary University of London, on July 6th 2016.

This workshop aims at bringing together scientists interested in the
characterisation of phase transitions in social and economical
systems, with a focus on models inspired by statistical physics and
nonlinear dynamics, and will provide a common platform for discussion
about the hottest trends in this field.

The meeting is part of the CoSyDy series, a London Mathematical
Society Scheme 3 network bringing together UK mathematicians
investigating Complex Systems Dynamics.

The workshop will take place on July 6th 2016, between 10:30-18:30,
and is hosted by the School of Mathematical Sciences, at Queen Mary
University of London. More information can be foud at the URL:
