Lots of activities during the summer of 2013

The summer of 2013 will be a very interesting one for us. In June we will participate in four conferences, in Lithuania and abroad, and present five reports (4 talks and 1 poster) on the most recent research done by us. During July and August we will have two students-trainees, who will participate in the project "Promotion of Student Scientific Activities" from the Research Council of Lithuania. The training will be held on the topics of "Economic convergence as thermodynamic appreciation of real currency exchange rate" (supervisor dr. (HP) Vygintas Gontis; student-trainee Kęstutis Acus) and "Controling complex stochastic systems" (supervisor Aleksejus Kononovicius; student-trainee Ignas Kazakevičius).

On the 5-6th of June in the Mykolas Romeris University the international conference "Social Transformations in Contemporary Society 2013" will be held. During the conference Aleksejus Kononovicius will give a talk on "Agent-based and macroscopic modeling of the complex socio-economic systems" (coauthor Valentas Daniūnas). The material behind the presentation will be published in an open-access journal "Social Technologies".

On the 10-12th of June in the Faculty of Physics, Vilnius University, the "40th Lithuanian national physics conference" will be held. During this conference we will present an oral presentation ("Mikroskopinis ir makroskopinis sudėtingų sistemų modeliavimas" by Aleksejus Kononovicius and Vygintas Gontis) and also a poster presentation ("Levio triukšmo veikiamų netiesinių sistemų savybių tyrimas" by Rytis Kazakevičius, Julius Ruseckas and Bronislovas Kaulakys). All of the presentations will be given on 11th of June - the poster session will be held from 13:00 to 14:30, while the oral session from 16:10 to 17:30.

On the 17-22th of June in the Reykjavik University PhD summer school and international conference "18th Annual Workshop on the Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents" will be held. Aleksejus Kononovicius will be participating in both. During the conference he will give a talk on "Generalizing binary choice agent-based herding model" (coauthor Vygintas Gontis).

On the 24-28th of June in Montpelier, France, "22th International Conference on Noise and Fluctuations" will be held. During the conference Vygintas Gontis will be giving an oral presentation "Fluctuation analysis of three agent group herding model" (coauthor Aleksejus Kononovicius). The related article should be also published in the conference proceedings.
