Dear Colleagues,

As a part of a joint initiative between IIT Madras, India, and Potsdam Institute for Climate Research (PIK) Germany, Prof. Jürgen Kurths and I are organizing an online seminar series. The website is
The aim of the Seminar Series is to disseminate the state-of-the-art in complex systems theory. We intend to bring together experts ranging from a wide variety of fields such as physics, ecology, climate science, engineering, who have bridged scientific disciplines and led the way in developing and applying aspects of complex systems theory to real-life problems. This Series will present an opportunity to foster collaborations and promote interactions among young researchers and experts. The series will feature plenary lectures by eminent researchers from different areas of nonlinear dynamics and complex systems theory.

The following is the schedule of the lecture series:

1. Prof. Jürgen Kurths (PIK Germany) - September 27, 2021

2. Prof. Kazuyuki Aihara (University of Tokyo) - October 25, 2021
