Complexity Science Approaches to Brain Dynamics

Welcome to the Korea-Canada Cooperative Development Workshop 2018 (October 1 - 5, 2018, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada) with an embedded two-day intensive symposium.  The International Symposium on Complexity Science Approaches to Brain Dynamics will be held from October 2 - 3, 2018, at the main campus of the University of Calgary (Legacy Suite, Dinning Center). 

This workshop and intensive symposium aim to bring together diverse groups of world-leading experts in complexity sciences/statistical physics and neuroscience in order to bridge the gap and increase communication between them. The goal of the workshop is to review the state-of-the-art and especially initiate new cross-disciplinary collaborative efforts with a particular focus on joint projects between Korean and Canadian partners.
