The school brings together experts in emerging photonic technologies and fundamental physics to share with young researchers their knowledge and interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and designing complex photonic systems. The areas covered by the school include: complexity of optical communication systems, in particular topics such as the nonlinear Fourier transform and transmission over multimode fibres, complexity in quantum systems emulated in photonics (including optical computing), PT-symmetric systems, complexity of emerging novel materials and components like meta-surfaces and micro-resonators. Importantly, the complexity in bio-medical photonic applications will be also considered as a high priority topic.

A new book on the Game of Life, and specifically on the Art of the Game of Life has been published by Springer. Edited by A. Adamatzky and Genaro J. Martinez, the book is part of the Series on Emergence, Complexity and Computation with artistic representations from simple mathematical models at the edge of physics and biology. The book contains a chapter by C. Conti on the Enlightened Game of Life.

People think that equations are not needed if we have a lot of data and the way to organize them… is this true?
Are equations useless for complex systems?
Are computers able to derive models for complex-systems more effectively than humans?
We are announcing the International School and Workshop in collaboration with the University of Washington in Rome!
Data-Driven Methods for Multi-Scale Physics and Complex Systems
An interdisciplinary initiative aimed at committing together different disciplines with the data-driven physics!
