Welcome to xiii lawnp

You are cordially invited to participate in the thirteenth biennial Latin American Workshop on Nonlinear Phenomena, XIII LAWNP, to be held in Villa Carlos Paz, Córdoba, Argentina, from October 21 to October 25, 2013. The Workshop will begin on Monday morning and it will end on Friday at late evening. The main Workshop activities will be at the Portal del Lago Hotel located in a natural environment with an ideal atmosphere that promotes interactions between established senior scientists, junior researchers and PhD students.

Previous conferences have been organized successfully in San Luis Potosi, Mexico (2011), Búzios, Brasil (2009), Arica, Chile (2007), Bariloche, Argentina (2005), Salvador, Brazil (2003), Cocoyoc, Mexico (2001), Cordoba, Argentina (1999), Canela, Brazil (1997), Bariloche, Argentina (1995), Mar del Plata, Argentina (1993), Santiago, Chile (1990) and Mar del Plata, Argentina (1988).

XIII LAWNP will be organized according to the classical scheme, with main sessions, followed by parallel sessions and poster presentations. Specific discussion topics will include: far-from-equilibrium and fluctuation phenomena; growth dynamics, cooperative phenomena, reaction-diffusion systems, self-organization, synchronization and pattern formation; nonlinear neuroscience; nonlinear phenomena in biosystems; nonequilibrium statistical physics of small systems; nonlinear fluid dynamics, turbulence, plasmas, complex fluids, colloids and granular media; nonlinearities in soft matter; recent developments in classical and quantum chaos; instability and bifurcation; non-linear wave propagation and solitons; nonlinear optics; nonlinear dynamics of complex systems in natural and social sciences; complex networks and traffic dynamics; interdisciplinary applications; among others.

We look forward to seeing you in Villa Carlos Paz, Córdoba, Argentina at XIII LAWNP.
