In the framework of the European research and training activities in Complexity Science, we announce the 5th Ph.D. School-Conference on “Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems” as follows:
Time: 20 – 30 July, 2015
Location: University of Patras Conference Center (http://www.confer.upatras.gr)
This is the next in a series of events that started at the University of Patras, Greece, in July, 2011 (see http://www.math.upatras.gr/~phdsch11) and continued at the University of Pescara, Italy, July, 2012 (see http://www.nodycosy.unich.it), July, 2013 at the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, Heraklion, Greece (see http://nlsconf2013.physics.uoc.gr) and July at the “Kritiki Estia” in Athens, Greece (see http://nlsconf2014.physics.uoc.gr).
This Ph.D. School is intended for postgraduate students primarily from European countries (but students from other countries are also invited to apply) and offers four coherent lecture modules, taught by experts in each field, on:
I. Fundamental Concepts of Complexity

II. Global Systems Science and Complex Networks
A. Barrat (Marseille), J. Johnson (London), A. Provata (Athens), M. Boudourides (Patras)
III. Complex Physical and Chemical Systems
I. Procaccia (Rehovot), H. Skokos (Cape Town), G. Tsironis (Heraclion), M. G. Velarde (Madrid), L. Vlahos (Thessaloniki), J. P. v.d. Weele (Patras), Y. Kevrekidis (Princeton), M. Robnik (Maribor)
IV. Complexity in Biological and Social Sciences
