1st LINC School, Sept 10-12, Palma de Mallorca [Ended]

The "LINC School" the first in a series of Schools devoted to the training of PhD students into concepts and techniques suitable for the study of climate and climatic processes, from the point of view of complex systems. This first school was devoted to the essentials of climate dynamics and network theory, and horizontal computational competences and was promoted with a course on scientific software engineering.

The chair of this event was Prof. Emilio Hernandez, IFISC (Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems), Universitat de les Illes Balears. It was held in the Campus of the University of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca, Spain, from 10th to 12th September 2012

The School is a part of the Initial Training Network project LINC (Learning about Interacting Networks in Climate), a Marie Curie action funded by the European Commission through its 7th Framework programme.  

For more information visit the Website of the school. Two videos produced during the school (Complexity, Networks and Climate) are available for viewing.
