Causality, Information Transfer and Dynamical Networks

Inferring cause-effect relationships from observations is one of the fundamental challenges in natural sciences and beyond.
This seminar and workshop aim to bring together a diverse group of scientists from various disciplines to increase communication
between different fields as well as to stimulate novel research work and to initiate new cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Topics include

- Estimating causal influences, interactions and connectivity from general multivariate recordings
- Information measures for detecting causality
- Permutation entropy and its applications
- Dynamical networks and their functionality
- Scale-dependent properties of dynamical networks
- Feedback between dynamics and connectivity
- Information transmission, neuronal avalanches and the critical brain
- From dynamical network structure to brain function
- Inferring network structure from calcium signals and spike trains
- Information theoretic approaches to sequence alignment and genetic network inference
- Information flow in genetic networks
- Self-similar networks for information transfer in geosciences
- Inference of climate networks
