Volume 25, 2016,
Special Issue "Diffusion Fundamentals VI", Second Part

Scope of the conference: As a ubiquitous process of random movement, ranging from molecular up to macroscopic and even cosmic scales, diffusion is key to spreading phenomena in quite diverse areas. Bringing together scientists from disciplines as different as archaeology, ecology, epidemics, ethnology, linguistics and sociology with biologists, chemists, physicists, mathematicians and engineers, Diffusion Fundamentals VI is scheduled to highlight the astonishingly similar patterns of spreading phenomena in Humanities, Natural Sciences and Engineering.
