We are planning to have the 5th International Workshop on Complex Systems for 25-28 September, 2007. The Workshop will be held in Sendai, Japan, as one of satellite meetings of the 4th International Conference on Flow Dynamics. It is intended to be a meeting of about 140 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) Glass Transition, (2) Complex Fluids, and (3) Polymer Dynamics.

This page will be updated when information becomes available.
