11. Special Session: "Advances in Chaotic Communications: Exact Theory and New Approaches" Session organiser:Professor A.J.Lawrance Department of Statistics, University of Warwick Coventry, CV4 7AL, UK Email: A.J.Lawrance@warwick.ac.uk Scope and rationale This session brings together four lead-authors and several co-authors who have in recent years been advancing chaos-based communication systems. The primary introductory notion of such systems is that chaotic waves replace the conventional sinosoidal waves. This immediately brings the mathematical field of chaos into communication engineering, particularly its less-known statistical aspects. The session will thus be appropriately interdisciplinary and more so by involving two leadauthors from each of the communication and mathematical disciplines through which recent progress has been made. This mixture is beneficial from the point of view of realism of development and the need for accompanying theory to be founded on rigorous probabilistic statistical assumptions and analysis of chaos. Although it has been known quite widely that chaos-based systems offer the potential of high performance and secure systems, see the three recent monographs, Lau et al. (2003), Tam et al. (2007) and Stavroulakis (2006), their development has been hindered by lack of theory based on adaptable assumptions. The first progress with the theory tended to transfer results from conventional systems and inevitably this overlooked the innovative aspects of the chaos involvement. As the area matures, attention is being given to accurately assessing system performance based on its chaotic and structural assumptions, often though the conventional but the always relevant bit error rate. Conventional theory cannot be employed because in chaos-based systems, bit energy is not constant. This has led to some challenging problems in determining system performance. Previous approximations turned out to be inaccurate, prompting the statisticalexact and simulation-exact bit energy theories which will each be presented in the session. The session will start with a short introduction to chaos communication and an opening perspective on the four papers to be presented. Abstracts of the talks follow here, but more briefly, Professor Lawrance will talk about the coherent and non-coherent antipodal chaos shift-keying (CSK) system, examined through discrete-time base-band modelling; he will show how statistical theory can lead to optimum decoders and improvements on correlation decoders, both in single- and multi- user systems. He will illustrate how theoretical development can lead to exact computable bit error rate assessment of correlation and optimal decoders and then to their theoretical lower bounds. Dr Kaddoum will consider the multi-user and coherent chaos-based DS-CDMA system and its correlation and rake decoders, and will focus on the fact that these involve the non-constant bit energy which makes the widely used bit error rate calculations inaccurate for small spreading factors. He will develop both an analytical approach using Raleigh, Nakagami or Rice distribution laws for the bit energy and a simulation approach yielding a bit energy histogram, each of which will be suitably integrated to yield required bit error rate results. This overcomes a long-standing difficulty and misunderstanding about bit energy. Mr Papamarkou will begin by considering a new class of chaotic maps which are aimed at reducing the variability of bit energy in chaos-shift keying, thus moving it towards a conventional system and moving its bit energy near to the theoretical lower bound. He will then take a statistically advanced look at the single-user non-coherent or DCSK system in which additionally a reference signal is transmitted, thus raising some interesting and relevant problems in likelihood decoding. Dr Xu will introduce a promising new chaos-based communication system, called a chaotic cyclic attractor shift-keying (CCASK) system which uses a chaotic cyclic attractor, the aim of which is to eliminate the need for a reference signal. The advantages, present results and further development of this system will be discussed. It can be anticipated that there is likely to be a fruitful interaction between these presentations which should make for an interesting session and future advances.

dynamics at the origins, and questions pertaining to gravitational waves
would be considered for inclusion in the session.
Scope and rationale In Financial Markets usually
price fluctuations are modelled via Gaussian random walks. Especially in
Financial Risk Management financial institutions are bound to Gaussian models
due to regulatory rules and laws. The current Financial Crisis is just another
well known empirical demonstration to use more sophisticated models: Extreme
Value Statistics, truncated Levy Flights, stochastic volatilities etc.
Nevertheless more sophisticated does not mean more accurate. In this special
session we show results of the industry's practices of nonlinear processes that
money and interest rates go and that have a chaotic character along with the
stochastic part by mean of stochastic fluctuations. Communication and abstract/paper submission at: firstname.lastname@example.org

session, we intend to present network dynamics of different complexity, realized
with different types of model neurons and couplings, in order to examine the system's
reaction to external stimuli and noise. We want to elucidate the dependence on
networks structure and connectivity, as well as on intrinsic properties of the
emphasis will be put on the analysis of phase transitions between different
types of oscillatory and chaotic activity, and their impact on the system's
sensitivity, resonances and synchronization. Neuron based models shall be
compared with more general approaches and physical systems to evaluate to which
extent principle characteristics of system's control can be applied to neuronal

Papers exploring the Role of Dimensionality in Physics would be considered for inclusion in the session. Session Organiser: Prof. Alfred Inselberg School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv Univerisity, Israel E-mail: email@example.com
Scope and rationale Understanding the underlying geometry of multidimensinal problems provides insight into what is possible and what is not. In an astonishing, but not well known result, the physicist Ehrenfest showed in 1917 that planetary orbits are stable only in space of dimension 3. Higher dimensional planetary systems, if they existed, would have had a short carreer. Another dimensional curiosity is that rotating rigid bodies have an axis of rotation only in odd-integer dimensions. Papers emphasizing the intuitive rather than technical aspects are invited on Chaotic Phenomena, Turbulence, Phenomena in High Dimensions, Plasma, Parity, Relativity and other fields where dimensionality plays a key and interesting role. The goal is to stimulate lively brain-storming in the afterMATH.
22. Special Session: "Innovation society - correlation of self-organization and management" Session Chair: Professor Vycheslav L. Romanov Session Co-Chair:Professor Anatoly A. Kolesnikov Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Scope and rationale
Special session devotes to discussing the problem of synergetics approach to social administration. The problem is that modern societies are in period of complex innovative transformations and swiftly submerge into state of unstable equilibrium. In such situations two competing paradigms suffer crisis: self-organizing (market) and controlled ordering in the society. We propose to discuss the conception of innovation of social administration based on idea of dynamical regulation for correlation of part of self-organization and part of administration in social ordering tool (directed social self-organization).

23. Special Session:"Information Geometry and Disorder" Scope and rationale
Information geometry is a body of theory that allows smooth families of probability density functions to be represented by Riemannian manifolds. In these spaces the metric structure is a natural distance given by the covariance matrix of the gradient of the log-likelihood function, so it owes its heritage to information theoretic maximum entropy criteria.
In the context of transitions through constrained disorder towards chaotic behaviour, certain smooth families of probability density functions have recurring presence in representing state evolution trajectories: for example, Poisson, exponential and gamma distributions and bivariate cases.Their information geometry turns out to be surprisingly tractable and it provides geometric tools for comparing trajectories and in particular for quantifying progress.
Papers exploring the context of information geometry and its role in representing approaches todisorder would be considered for inclusion in the session.
