The Variability Round Table is a unique initiative to bring together experts and students with knowledge of medicine, theoretical physics, and mathematics to complete the following primary objectives;

1) to discuss theories regarding the origins and etiology of complexity in physiological signals
2) examine and refine the methodology of continuous variability analysis
3) review and discuss the clinical applications of complex systems science, and
4) discuss and foster trans-disciplinary collaborative research projects.

The organizing committee recognizes the importance of maintaining its academic objectives. The group has a mission to promote post-graduate education by making presentations and discussions available to graduate students according to subject themes and, subsequently collate, review and publish the resultant contributions in journals.
