The theory of complex networks has now found its way as a promising methodology in the climate research field. Over the last few years, many novel results have appeared on a diverse set of topics. These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate (model) data.
During this conference, which is the final event organized by the European Union ITN project "Learning about Interacting Network in Climate" (LINC), we will
- discuss the progress on climate networks over the last decade
- critically evaluate the results obtained for climate research
- discuss future directions of research in the "networks and climate" research field.
