Scope and aim

In the past decade the physics of complex systems has become one of the most interdisciplinary subjects of contemporary science. In particular, this field has penetrated into various areas of natural and even social sciences for the modeling of complex dynamics, data analysis, prediction, and monitoring purposes. To explore of such systems, for monitoring and forecast their complex evolution, physicists employ effective tools from nonlinear dynamics and statistical physics. In this field the researches are focused on the study of the behavior of systems that consist of many individual components and whose non-linear evolution cannot be guessed from the behavior of its components.

Despite the considerable progress made on the study of complex systems by employing methodoligical tools from the physics, there is still wide spectrum of problems which need to be attacked from the viewpoint of physics of complex systems. Especially this concerns applications in the fundamental problems of the earth system physics, neuroscience, biology, medicine and financial and social systems.

Therefore this international conference aims at to isolate and discuss some of the less-explored and newly emerged issues in the physics of complex and non-linear systems as well as their future prospects with the focus on different challenging problems of natural and environmental sciences.

Scientific program will cover different aspects of complex systems and nonlinear dynamics with broad spectrum of interdisciplinary topics. In particular, the following topics will be covered by the invited and plenary lectures:

It is expected that the event shall open the door for cooperation between scientists from Central Asia and their colleagues from the Western countries. The conference will be attended by young researchers from Central Asian countries, their encounter with world-class scientists of the field will be important for their orientation in an early stage of their career, will have long-lasting effects on the quality of their scientific work, and will help establish scientific contacts.
