A recurrence plot workshop is planned for September 22-24, 2005 as a satellite meeting of the 13th International IEEE Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics of Electronic Systems (NDES conference) in Potsdam (Germany, World Heritage Site).

The objective of the workshop is the exchange of knowledge of scientists working in the disciplines of time series analysis and/or recurrences. Significant progress has been made in the areas of data analysis by means of recurrences. Recurrence Plots (RPs) have been shown to be a very robust tool for the analysis of time series, and can cope with large amounts of noise and even nonstationarity. RPs have found applications in fields such as physiology (EEG, ECG), astrophysics, geophysics, meteorology, genetics and finance. Theoretical results show how closely RPs are linked to dynamical invariants like entropies and dimensions. It can be shown that the dynamics of a system can be captured in a recurrence plot and that it is possible to perform a synchronization analysis by RPs. These practical and theoretical aspects will be discussed in the workshop. Moreover, potential applications of RP-based methods for spatio-temporal data, image analysis, statistical tests etc. will be explored.
