Short description of the event: 

This conference aims at bringing together functional analysts, mathematical physicists, experts of dynamical systems, and probabilists who have research interests in graph theory, networks, complex systems, and/or random walks. It will ideally follow the path of previous meetings on differential equations on networks held in the past years in Blaubeuren (Germany) and Castro Urdiales (Spain) as well as the QGraph meeting series that has taken place in several German and Swedish venues since 2009.

The conference will be tentatively organized in four daily sessions on
- Theory and spectral applications of random matrices
- Point models and systems of ordinary differential equations
- Spatial models and parabolic equations on networks
- Structure and dynamics of complex networks

Conference on "Mathematical Technology of Networks - QGraphs 2013" - first announcement

December 4-7, 2013

Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Bielefeld, Germany

A conference on "Mathematical Technology of Networks" will take place in Bielefeld (Germany) from December 4 to December 7, 2013. It will be hosted in the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, a renowned institute for advanced studies funded by the University of Bielefeld and the Land Nordrhein-Westfalen.

This conference aims at bringing together functional analysts, mathematical physicists, experts of dynamical systems, and probabilists who have research interests in graph theory, networks, complex systems, and/or random walks. It will ideally follow the path of previous meetings on differential equations on networks held in the past years in Blaubeuren (Germany) and Castro Urdiales (Spain) as well as the QGraph meeting series that has taken place in several German and Swedish venues since 2009.

The conference will be tentatively organized in four daily sessions on

- Theory and spectral applications of random matrices

- Point models and systems of ordinary differential equations

- Spatial models and parabolic equations on networks

- Structure and dynamics of complex networks

The conference will take place at the ZiF - Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Bielefeld.

Bielefeld is a large, lively town in eastern Westphalia. The closest airports are Hannover (110 km), Düsseldorf (190 km), Köln-Bonn (200 km), Frankfurt (320 km).

While the conference will be held on the premises of the ZiF, their facilities do not include a guest house. However, the ZiF has special deals with several hotels in Bielefeld: the interested participants are invited to contact the organization for more thorough information about accomodation.

A limited amount of funding is available to support the participation of young researchers.
