Forthcoming special events and conferences 

Complex Systems in Time Series

Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December 2015

When you register a place to attend this conference we recommend that you also email Ian Marshall (i.marshall@lse.ac.uk) to confirm that you have done this.  

Complex systems can be observed from complex social networks and its evolution to transportation and electric power generation; from physical flow of fluids to neurological circuits in our brains; from spatio-temporal dependence of macroeconomic and financial time series to the spread of disease. Understanding any patterns and providing good forecasts in these systems is of paramount importance in decision or policy making. Since data involved is usually high dimensional in nature and dependence among variables can be strong, techniques in handling such data are all evolving to adapt to the new challenges. New research in this direction includes temporal network analysis, statistical and machine learning, parametric and nonparametric inferences and dimension reduction in stationary and non-stationary time series.

The aim of this two-day workshop is to bring together expertise in these areas to create possible new research opportunities. Researchers from relevant scientific fields can also gain valuable information on new data analytics.

Please send any questions to Ian Marshall.
