Recurrence Quantification Analysis Workshop

Location: McGill University 

Date: May 1-3, 9am-5pm, 2019  

CREATE network mentors Dr. Paula Silva and Dr. Mike Riley from the Cognition, Action and Perception team (University of Cincinnati, US) will lead this 3-day workshop on Recurrence Quantification Analysis. Lunch will be provided.

Recurrence Quantification is a method of nonlinear data analysis for the investigation of dynamical systems that quantifies the number and duration of recurrences of a dynamical system in its phase space trajectory. RQA techniques can be applied within a system (auto-RQA) and across systems (cross-RQA; joint RQA). Trainees will learn specific applications and how to apply them to their own datasets. Computer workstations will be provided, and trainees can download the software to their laptops.

This introductory workshop counts as a technical workshop for CREATE-funded trainees in complex dynamics. Registration is first-come, first-served for all CREATE trainees; priority will be given to graduate and postdoc trainees. There are only 20 spots, so please register soon by replying to dynamics (dot) create at gmail (dot) com
