LINC will host Conference on Complex Networks and Climate Variability

Conference on Complex Networks and Climate Variability
Mercure Hotel Wien City, Vienna, Austria
April 11-12, 2015.
Organized by Learning about Interacting Networks in Climate (LINC)

The complex network paradigm is a fruitful tool for understanding complex systems in various areas of science. Over the last years, the research field of Climate Networks (i.e., the application of complex network tools to climate science) has produced many novel results that have improved our understanding of complex climate phenomena. These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate data.

During the conference we will discuss recent progress on Climate Networks and analyze the most promising directions of future research.

The conference is organized by the LINC project ( and is open to all researchers interested in climate phenomena, networks and complex systems. The conference will include invited talks, contributed talks and a poster session. It will take place April 11-12, 2015, just before the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2015 General Assembly.
