We are planning to have the 3rd International Workshop on Complex Systems for 16-19 November, 2005. The Workshop will be held in Sendai, Japan, as one of satellite meetings of the 2nd International Conference on Flow Dynamics together with the 3rd International Symposium on Water Dynamics. It is intended to be a meeting of about 70 participants. Our goal is to bring together the qualified researchers who are making excellent effort to study the complex systems in different fields and to discuss the underlying issues. The main topics of the Meeting are (1) Complex Fluids, (2) Glass Transition, and (3) Polymer Dynamics.

This page will be updated when information becomes available.

Social Programs: gExcursion & BanquethClick for details
In the afternoon of November 18, we are planning to make an excursion to the countryside near Sendai city, famous Sakunami Spa, and to stay at a Japanese-style Hotel (Ichinobo) for one night, holding a typical Japanese-style banquet. We expect all of you to enjoy a typical Japanese countryside and also Japanese-style outdoor baths. This program costs 12,000 Yen. This will cover transportation fee, excursion fee, meals, and one night accommodation fee at Ichinobo Inn. Since the Inn has no single room available, you are asked to share a tatami room with 4 or 5 persons. This is mainly because the number of rooms is limited
