2nd International Recurrence Plot Workshop Siena
20th anniversary of recurrence plots

University of Siena, Center for the Study of Complex Systems
September 10-12, 2007

Twenty years after the introduction of recurrence plots by Eckmann et al., the 2nd recurrence plot workshop will be held in the beautiful medieval town of Siena (Italy) on September 10-12, 2007.

Participants are invited to present their recurrence plot related work.

The objective of the workshop is the exchange of knowledge of scientists working in the disciplines of time series analysis and/or recurrences. Significant progress has been made in the areas of data analysis by means of recurrences. Recurrence Plots (RPs) have been shown to be a very robust tool for the analysis of time series, and can cope with large amounts of noise and even nonstationarity. RPs have found applications in such diverse fields as physiology (EEG, ECG, EMG), astrophysics, geophysics, meteorology, biochemistry and finance. Theoretical results show how closely RPs are linked to dynamical invariants like entropies and dimensions. It can be shown that the dynamics of a system can be captured in a recurrence plot and that it is possible to perform a synchronisation analysis by RPs. These practical and theoretical aspects will be discussed in the workshop. Moreover, potential applications of RP-based methods for spatio-temporal data, image analysis, statistical tests etc. will be explored.

Deadline for abstract submission is June 1st, 2007, for registration June 30th, 2007.
