Disorder in Complex Systems

Institut Pascal of Paris Saclay University offers an intensive 2 weeks introduction to the physics of disorder and complex systems. Lectures are taught by the faculty of Paris-Saclay and guest leading educators and scholars from other renowned institutions. The school is intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals seeking to overcome traditional disciplinary boundaries in the fields relevant to the physics of complex systems.
Formal classes and seminars, are complemented by discussions and activities hosted by the laboratories of the University. The school covers basic concepts, tools, and current topics relevant to the problem of disorder in complex systems. These include glassy systems, nonlinear dynamics, scaling, soft matter, and other topical areas or case studies.
An internship program following the 2-week school is also offered to a smaller subset of selected participants.
We expect interactions among participants that can help fostering research projects and collaborations in an environment that is intended to bring together a diverse group.
