UK Nonlinear News, November 2001
This meeting was held at the Freiburg Center for Data Analysis and Modelling at the University of Freiburg (Black Forest, Germany) September 23 - 26 2001 and was jointly organised by Henning Voss (Freiburg), Jens Timmer (Freiburg), and Juergen Kurths (Potsdam). Approximately 45 participants contributed a talk, poster, or to discussion.
The workshop was inspired by the fact that data-based inference and validation of continuous-time models have become important challenges in nonlinear data analysis. The intention was to bring together experts on the data-driven analysis of systems and those working experimentally with particular systems from different fields of research. The workshop aimed at discussing problems that were interesting for physicists, engineers, and mathematicians in a joint approach.
The organizers included much time for discussion on a get-together meeting, a conference dinner, a city walk and a trip to the mountains.
The results will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Bifurcation and Chaos (IJBC) in Applied Sciences and Engineering.
