Abstract: The object of the theory of dynamical systems addresses the qualitative behaviour of dynamical systems as understood from models. Moreover, models are often not perfect and can be improved using data using tools from the field of Data Assimilation. Additionally, the field of Machine Learning is concerned with algorithms designed to accomplish certain tasks whose performance improve with the input of more data. The intersection of the fields of dynamical systems, data assimilation and machine learning is largely unexplored. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from these fields to fill the gap between these theories.

Call for Papers: The intersection of the fields of dynamical systems, data assimilation and machine learning is largely unexplored, and the goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from these fields to fill the gap between these theories in the following directions:

1) Machine Learning for Dynamical Systems: how to analyse dynamical systems on the basis of observed data rather than attempt to study them analytically.

2) Dynamical Systems for Machine Learning: how to analyse algorithms of Machine Learning using tools from the theory of dynamical systems.

3) Data Assimilation for Machine Learning and/or Dynamical Systems: how well does the model under consideration (Machine Learning model and/or Dynamical System) represent the physical phenomena.

4) Machine Learning for Data Assimilation: how to assist or replace the traditional methods in making forecasts, without the unrealistic assumption (particularly linearity, normality and zero error covariance) of the conventional methods.

Procedures for Submission:

1) Visit EasyChair Home, if you do not have an account in EasyChair.
