ICTP-SAIFR Workshop on Sociophysics: Social Phenomena from a Physics Perspective

Start time: April 19, 2020
Ends on: April 23, 2020
Location: São Paulo, Brazil

The application of techniques of statistical (and other areas of) physics to understand the dynamics of social systems is currently one of the hottest topics in the study of complex systems. The so-called Sociophysics has attracted the attention of a large number of scientists from areas such as physics, computer science, and mathematics, as well as the humanities.

This meeting will bring together physicists and other scientists from all over the world to focus on open issues in social modelling and to identify the new directions in which this interdisciplinary field is evolving.

This activity will be preceded by the ‘School on Applications of Nonlinear Systems to Socio-Economic Complexity’. There is no registration fee.
