Many complex systems are characterized by multi-level properties that make the study of their dynamics and of their emerging phenomena a daunting task. The huge amount of data available in modern sciences is expected to promote rapid progress in these areas, even though the nature of the data varies. Given the heterogeneity of the data, topological features often clearly convey important qualitative features of a system, while retaining the quantitative rigour.
This workshop aims at offering an up-to-date view on the study of complex multi-level systems via topological methods such as persistent (co)homology and techniques from topological dynamics. It will be held as a satellite to the European Conference on Complexity Science (http://www.eccs13.eu/) on September 18, 2013, in Barcelona, Spain.
