The Gordon Research Seminar on Oscillations and Dynamic Instabilities in Chemical Systems is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education
present their work and exchange cutting-edge ideas. Some
contributions will be selected for talks. The collegial
atmosphere of this conference will offer ample space for informal
gatherings among peers and the opportunity for non-intimidating
discussions with some leading senior scientists from the related
area, invited as mentors.
This meeting will focus on pioneering
research in the field of self-organization phenomena in
out-of-equilibrium systems and reflects the multidisciplinary
character of the associated GRC on Oscillations and Dynamic
Instabilities in Chemical Systems. Proposed topics include, but
are not limited to, theoretical and experimental studies of
nonlinear kinetics in chemistry and biology, chemical
oscillations, coupled oscillators and synchronization phenomena,
spatial pattern formation, chemo-hydrodynamic instabilities,
chemo-mechanics, granular materials, multistability phenomena,
deterministic chaos, collective behavior, systems chemistry and
networks. Special emphasis will be put on how to transpose the
fundamental background of nonlinear dynamics and complexity in
biological, materials and environmental science.
This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Oscillations & Dynamic Instabilities in Chemical Systems" Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
. Refer to the associated GRC program page
