Complex systems such as the human brain, Earth’s climate and economy are

characterized by a multitude of coupled processes on different spatial

and temporal scales. In order to better understand the dynamics of the

system at hand each scientific area has developed specific tools to

identify, model and quantify these processes. The conference Coupling and Causality in Complex Systems (C3S) will present a collection of these approaches with the aim to provide scientists with new analysis strategies for their field.

 

The conference focuses on how to characterize a complex system and on the methods for estimating and modeling of statistical coupling (e.g.

network coherence, creation and modulation of small networks and local

or long-range synchronization by cross frequency phase-phase and

phase-amplitude coupling) and causality (e.g. Granger causality,

transfer entropy). Therefore, data analysts from different study fields

including neuroscience, mathematics, physics, biology, and economy will

present their approaches with a particular focus on the methods they

use. The aim of this conference is to foster discussions and the

transdisciplinary exchange of advanced techniques, methods, and

algorithms, thereby stimulating potential future collaborations.
