The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Chinese Center of Advanced Science and Technology(CCAST) and the Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics China (KITPC) are jointly organizing the 2nd Asian-Pacific School on Statistical Physics and Interdisciplinary Applications.
The school is associated to the KITP programme Collective Dynamics in Information systems (http://agenda.albanova.se/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=238) and will offer introductory lectures on fundamental topics in statistical physics of disordered systems and application to dynamics in information systems, ranging from computer science to biological systems.

Introduction to Statistical Physics of Disordered Systems
The Cavity Method and Survey Propagation Algorithm
Introduction to Constrain Satisfiability Problems
Information Theory
Information in Neural Systems
Evolutionary Game Theory

PARTICIPATION
The participation to the activities is open to graduate students and post-docs from all countries, which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA, and aimed preferably at candidates from the Asian-Pacific region. As they will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language.
Although the main purpose of these activities is to help researchers from developing countries, through a programme of training within a framework of international cooperation, a limited number of students and post-doctoral scientists from developed countries are also welcome to attend.
As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants should be borne by their home institution. Every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare (or at least half-fare). However, limited funds are available for some participants, who are nationals of, and working in, a developing country, and who are not more than 45 years old. Such support is available only for those who attend the school during its whole period. There is no registration fee.
