Celebrating Germinal Cocho's 80th birthday
July 28th to August 1st, 2014
Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.
This workshop is planned, among other things, to celebrate the 80th
birthday of Prof. Germinal Cocho.
Prof. Cocho is one of the most well-known and respected scientists in Mexico who
has played a central role in the development and consolidation of the study of Complex Systems in out country. His contribution to
the development of Mexican science is priceless and cannot be understated.
We would like to honor Prof. Cocho's academia career
with a workshop where a group of selected speakers, all world-leading experts in the area of Criticality, would present the state
of the art of their own fields. Of particular interest is the discussion of the meaning of criticality and the principles that govern
its emergence. The workshop would have a relaxed schedule with two talks during the morning and one talk in the afternoon, in such
a way as to have plenty of time for discussion and exchange of ideas.
