Complex systems play a key role in a vast range of activities vital to the functioning and well-being of society and humanity, in both the natural and constructed world.
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems, namely MASCOS, stimulates and hones research activity in order to understand and manage these complex systems.
Such research focuses on three flagship applications that reflect key societal concerns underpinned by complex systems: accurate assessment of financial risk; security of large engineering grids; and control of emerging pests, diseases and pathogens. Tackling these and other key applications such as climate modelling, draws upon a variety of mathematical and statistical techniques which form the backbone of research into the solution of the flagship applications.
MASCOS is engaged in an extensive and vigorous outreach program encompassing schools, commerce, industry, and the broader research community. It is intended to raise the profile and reinforce the importance of the mathematical sciences across the spectrum of Australia’s scientific and technological development.
MASCOS operates from five nodes: The University of Melbourne, The Australian National University, The University of New South Wales, La Trobe University, and The University of Queensland.Website: http://www.complex.org.au/
The Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Lomonosov Moscow State University was founded in 1970 by the Russian outstanding mathematician A.N.Tikhonov (1906 - 1993).
Development and widespread of computers calls for a highly qualified specialists in areas of Applied Mathematics, Computational Mathematics and Computer Science.
Today our Faculty is a leading research and training center in Russia for all fields of computing and software development.Website: http://fao.cs.msu.su/
International Graduate Program for Advanced Science (IGPAS) is an interdisciplinary graduate program in the Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University. It was established in October 2004 as the first international graduate program founded in Japanese national universities. IGPAS offers courses in English for international students who are eager to obtain master’s and doctoral degrees from the Graduate School of Science. It also aims to educate Japanese students to exert their abilities as internationally-active, professional scientists.
IGPAS has proudly reserved positions of Japanese government scholarship for its master’s students since its foundation, prospective students will have excellent opportunities to study modern science and conduct cutting-edge research with top-level scientists currently working at Tohoku University.Website: http://www.sci.tohoku.ac.jp/english/igpas/
