The MEDYFINOL conference series was conceived in 1986 as a means of collecting researchers in various branches of the physics of nonequilibrium and dynamical systems, mostly in Argentina and neighboring countries, aiming at broadening the scope to attract colleagues from all over the world. Thirty six years have elapsed and we can ascertain that MEDYFINOL is firmly established in the international community as one of the most important regular meetings in the field.
This XXI MEDYFINOL follows a series of meetings that took place in Santiago de Chile (2018), Valdivia, Chile (2016); Maceió, Brazil (2014); Santiago, Chile (2012); Punta de Este, Uruguay (2008); Mar del Plata, Argentina (2006); La Serena, Chile (2004); Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay (2002); Huerta Grande, Córdoba (1999); Canela, Brazil (1997); Tucumán, Argentina (1996); San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina (1995); Montevideo, Uruguay (1994); Mar del Plata, Argentina (1993); Mar del Plata, Argentina (1991); Santiago de Chile, Chile (1990); Puerto Iguazú, Argentina (1989); Mar del Plata, Argentina (1988); Lujan, Argentina (1987); and Lujan, Argentina (1986).
Statistical Mechanics and Nonlinear Physics are research areas that have developed a multidisciplinary character with many applications in biology, physiology, ecology, economics, sociology, etc. The scientific problems discussed in the meeting included: images characterization, biological applications of statistical physics, econophysics and sociologically related problems, chaos and nonlinear dynamics, pattern formation and spatio-temporal complexity, fluids and granular media, nonextensive thermostatistics, irreversible thermodynamics, stochastic processes, lasers and nonlinear optics, synchronization, wavelets and nonlinear time series analysis, complex networks, neuronal and brain dynamics.
The purpose of the MEDYFINOL series of meetings is to keep the Latinamerican scientific community updated with new developments and trends in the statistics and nonlinear physics fields, to incentive collaborative international science programs, and to identify and discuss the most relevant issues in the area. The success of the MEDYFINOL meeting series can be attributed to the presence of eminent speakers; the high quality contributed papers, as well as significant student participation.
