I am a lecturer in data science at the University of Exeter in the Department for Computer Science. My research focuses on complex social systems and is aimed at providing a deeper understanding of how such systems behave. Technological devices, such as smart phones, and technological systems, such as the Internet, provide an unprecedented source of information on human behaviour and my work focuses on investigating how people interact with these systems. These interactions often contribute to create a deeply interconnected structure that can be analysed using tools from network science, a recent interdisciplinary part of complex systems science. Using different tools ranging from network theory to physical and computer sciences, I analyse large data sets to study social systems and human behaviour. Part of my research also focuses on improving current techniques in the analysis of networked systems. I am also a member of the Complex Systems Society and the Young Researchers Networks on Complex Systems. I have presented talks and posters at international conferences and attended various schools for PhD students. Areas of Interest: Structure of real-world networks, data science, computational social sciences, mathematical modelling of real-world systems, urban systems and cities.

Ph.D. Student at University of Padua
5 January 1991, Salerno (Italy). I am at present a Graduate student in Physics, University of Padua (Italy), supervised by prof. Amos Maritan. 2014: Italian degree similar to a master’s degree in Physics, University of Pisa (Italy), Top grade. 2012: Italian degree similar to a bachelor’s degree in Physics, University of Salerno (Italy), Top grade. 2009: High school leaving qualification in classical studies, Classical Lyceum “Francesco De Sanctis”, Salerno (Italy). Initially the scientific interest has been devoted to quantum information, in particular studying the properties of the entanglement and Von Neumann’s entropy. Successively focused attention to complex systems, like auto-organization phenomena and reaction-diffusion dynamics: in this context Turing patterns formation plays a fundamental role. The latter has been investigated for anisotropic continuous domains, Cartesian product networks and also for multiplex networks. In the last year the interest was on the problem of controllability in complex networks and on the role of interactions in ecosystems. At this moment the research is directed toward the entropy production of out of equilibrium systems and the meaning of its extremum principles. Publications: Phys. Rev. E 90, 042814 (2014); Sci.

Juan C. Correa
I received a Ph.D. in 2015 under the supervision of professor Klaus Jaffe at Universidad Simón Bolívar (Caracas, Venezuela). In my thesis, I developed an agent-based model to estimate the impact of motorcycle lane-sharing on the behavior of road users. Nowadays, I work as a scientific researcher and lecturer in the graduate program of consumer psychology at Fundación Universitaria Konrad Lorenz (Bogotá, Colombia). I love to study sensitive topics of everyday life. Especially those that we can tackle with available data and from an Interdisciplinary approach (i.e., using different theoretical and methodological frameworks). I have a wide variety of academic interests including Complexity and Social Complex Systems, Psychology of Corruption, Ideological Consumerism, Consumer Psychology, Analysis of Natural Language in Politics, Urban Mobility, and Urban Traffic. I also enjoy studying new research methods and techniques such as reproducible research, structural equation modeling, Agent-based simulations, Data and Text Mining, Web Scraping (through R or Python), Montecarlo Simulations, and the family of Multiple Regression Models (e.g., Kernel, Linear, Logistic, Probit, Logit).

Research Associate at IHMC
Adam Dalton joined IHMC in 2012 as a Research Associate in cyber security and natural language processing. Prior to joining the team in Ocala, he was the technical lead for Information Architecture development on NASA’s Launch Control System at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). He also developed simulations to help plan the transition of a skilled workforce from the Space Shuttle Program to next generation space systems. Adam got his Bachelor’s degree in Honours Computer Science from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and his Master’s in modeling and simulation from the University of Central Florida. He will begin studies for a Ph.D. in Computer Science this fall at the University of Florida. In Ocala he works on a cyber security project focused on understanding the behavior of systems and users to better protect mission-critical systems with high visibility, such as rocket launch control or nuclear power plant operations. Understanding the configurations and interactions of complex networks is crucial to reducing the vulnerability of such targets. A goal is to optimize the strengths of humans and machines so they can cooperate in the pursuit of a more secure system. His NLP project is aimed at the deep and robust analysis and understanding of multi-party conversations—including conversations that are only partially and inaccurately transcribed, and likely to contain obscure and even deceptive language. In particular, his work makes explicit the conversation’s dynamics (e.g., critical topic shifts and other sociolinguistic features of dialogue) through which the interlocutors’ beliefs and intentions as well as those of third parties can be modeled and projected. He and his wife Larissa have three sons, Sam, Ted, and Alex. When he has time outside of work he enjoys reading science fiction, playing Ultimate Frisbee and watching baseball.

I work towards food system justice and sustainability in community with intersectional change makers. I am a community developer, a facilitator, a researcher, a connector, and am inquisitive by nature. Bringing over ten years of experience in the field of community food security, agricultural and food system planning, community development, and agri-food policy I am currently pursuing my doctoral studies at the University of British Columbia. I hold undergraduate degrees in Psychology, French Literature and Soil & Environmental Science (University of British Columbia) and a Master’s of Science in Rural Planning (University of Guelph). I have worked with multiple levels of federal government including Environment Canada’s and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s as part of the Research Affiliate Program. I currently serve as Chair of the BC Food Systems Network, Secretary of the Sustainable Agricultural Education Association, and was a past member of the Working Group for Food Justice with the Vancouver Food Policy Council. As a doctoral candidate, my academic interests are in how colonial governments, in the unceded, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations, attempt to shape agricultural futures in contexts of difference, complexity, and unpredictability. I am interested in the role that state planning plays in achieving justice in the food system. Concurrently, I conduct scholarship and educational development on food justice pedagogies with three undergraduate students at UBC as part of a Teaching Learning Enhancement Fund project. This work inspires my studies and actions oriented towards an application of decolonizing, anti-racist, anti-patriarchal, anti-heteronormative framings to advance sustainable and equitable food systems and greater civic engagement through food and agricultural planning.

Associate Professor (in French MDC-HC, HDR) at Université de Cergy-Pontoise
I’m a physicist and since 1993 I'm associate professor at Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modélisation (LPTM), a laboratory of CNRS- Cergy Pontoise University. I did my undergraduate studies at Buenos Aires University, I have obtained my PhD in Physics in 1992 at the Institut Nationale des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) Toulouse, France and my HDR (“Habilitation to Conduct Research” French diploma) in 2015, at Cergy Pontoise University. I think that true interdisciplinarity, where specialists of different disciplines put together their expertise in order to create new knowledge, is the key of the understanding of many open problems. For this reason I participate in different organizations that act for development of Complex Systems studies: I’m a councilor of the Complex System Digital Campus (CS-DC Unitwin UNESCO) and member of the Direction Board of the Institute of Complex Systems of Paris-Ile-de-France (ISCpif). I’m interested in the study of Complex Systems not only in my own discipline, but also in other fields like Ecology or Social Sciences, where I apply the point of view of Physics, using the tools and the concepts of Statistical Physics and Dynamical Systems. For instance I work on a complex network approach of Mutualistic Ecosystems, (like plant-pollinators or plant-frugivores networks), and also in problems of Cultural and Opinion Dynamics, both using a data based approach and also a by the study of theoretical models. I work on numerical simulations, using advanced Monte Carlo methods and multi-agent simulations. I’m very concerned about the transmission of this way of working to young students, in this respect, in collaboration with a colleague of LPTM, I have created and co-directed, since 2010 to 2015, the Master in Theoretical Physics and Applications (fully taught in English) of the Cergy Pontoise University, where in particular, I was responsible for the Complex Systems Path of that master program. Keywords: Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena, Disordered Materials, Complex Networks, Mutualist Ecosystems, Cultural and Opinion Dynamics, Agent-based Model, Monte Carlo Simulations.

PhD student at University of Cambridge
I am an Italian neuroscientist with a background in philosophy and cognitive science. I am interested in how the mind arises from the complex interactions between brain systems. For my PhD in Clinical Neurosciences, I work on the application of measures from network science and information theory to study the brain across multiple scales and in a variety of states of altered consciousness – such as anaesthesia and vegetative state, but also sleep and psychedelics. Ultimately, I would like to develop a landscape of altered states of consciousness, and a unified understanding of how consciousness is lost, and how we can promote its recovery in patients.

Luis Alberto Martinez Vaquero
Postdoctoral fellow at Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC-CNR)
I am postdoctoral researcher with a strong interest in the multidisciplinary study of complex systems and its application to social, ecological, and biological systems. My background is in Physics. I did my PhD in Astrophysics using numerical cosmological simulations. Then I decided to move to Complex Systems and got a postdoctoral fellowship to work on Evolutionary Game Theory at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. We studied, among other things, the emergence of intolerance through reputation-based models of indirect reciprocity. After that I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), where we studied the emergence of different mechanisms and behaviours (apology, forgiveness, ostracism, reinsertion, etc.) in cooperative agreements. We were also analysing data from different types of dictator game experiments. Currently I am an ERCIM postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC-CNR) in Rome, where we are studying the emergence of cooperation in swarm-like systems, joining approaches from evolutionary game theory and evolutionary robotics. In spite of most of my work has been theoretical (analytical and numerical analysis and simulations), I am also really interested in working with real data and experiments. I enjoy multidisciplinary environments and collaborating with people from different fields. I have organized the first edition of the Winter Workshop on Complex Systems in 2015 and I am part of the permanent steering committee of the series. The objective of this workshop series is to encourage the collaboration between young researchers through different projects and activities. After its first edition it started to grow fast and now it is sponsored by well-known institutions.
I am a scientist working at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EFPL). My research interests span the areas of network science, multilayer systems, computational modeling and big data analytics. A common thread in my research is in understanding the theory and quantification of the interplay between physical infrastructures, information and human (social) activity. I received both my Bachelor (2006) and my Master (2009) in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florence. I then received my Ph.D. in Complex Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics in 2014 from the Dept. of Information Engineering and Dept. of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Florence. Throughout my research experience, I have pursued challenging research projects across disciplines. For example, I worked for three years in a Complex Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics Lab in Florence (Italy), and six months at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (Berlin, Germany) within a team of psychologists and cognitive scientists. The main activity during my PhD was to develop cognitive-inspired models to study both the structure and the dynamics in complex networks. My main contribution was to analyze the interaction between information and epidemic spreading in multiplex networks. After defending my PhD thesis, I joined the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering Carnegie Mellon University as a Postdoctoral Associate (March 2014), working jointly with the Risk and Decision Science Team of US Army Corps of Engineer. My main contribution was to merge the concept of resilience, as defined in the field of engineering with standard network failure dynamics, with the goal of quantifying the resilience of multilayer networks under stress. During this project, I supervised a team through the project’s simulation and computational modeling phases. In parallel, I also worked on another resilience and network science project, introducing the same definition of resilience in epidemic modeling. From 2014 to 2016 I have been employed as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the SENSEable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In this role, I was focused on fundamental and applied research that relates to quantifying, modelling and predicting human behavior within urban environments. More broadly, I worked in a highly collaborative fashion with the lab’s multidisciplinary team, external research groups and industrial partners on topics including mobility, social interactions, economic activity and epidemic modelling.
Assistant Professor at IMT School of Advanced Studies
I am a Mathematician from Bari, currently an assistant professort at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies, in Lucca (NETWORKS research unit), where I work on the human functional and structural brain network, with particular attention to its modular organization. I got the PhD in Economics at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa working on the International Trade Network as a complex system under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Fagiolo. I was a visiting fellow at Lorenz Institute of Theoretical Physics (Leiden, the Netherlands) in the group of Prof. Garlaschelli and part of the INET project “Empirical and theoretical analysis of macroeconomics networks” for two years at Sant'Anna School. From march 2014 to october 2015 I joined the team of Dr. Alain Barrat at the "Centre de Physique Théorique" in Marseille as a post-doc researcher for the project on disease transmission in collaboration with the Hôpital Nord in Marseille. I studied the epidemic spreading on networks focusing on: different social groups and social ties; methods of data detection; problems of data sampling. My main research interests are: social dynamics, complex networks, statistical physics, null models, brain networks, econophysics, epidemics.
Post-doc at Université catholique de Louvain
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Université catholique de Louvain, in Belgium. My research interest lies in the field of network science, particularly stochastic dynamics on networks. Born in the heart of Siberia, I studied hardcore math in extreme weather conditions. One day I thought I should do something with it and got a PhD position at Central European University in sunny Budapest. There I studied spreading models on networks from both mathematical and empirical perspectives. Simultaneously I carried out research in pure graph theory as a second PhD project. After PhD I found my passion in studying online social networks and working with large-scale datasets of real world data in Belgium. Currently I have a project related to comprehensive study of online discussion forums, one examples of which is Reddit (you might have heard this name). Within this framework I continue my journey and explore new models and methods in complex systems.
Principal Investigator at CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences
By training I am a theoretical and computational physicist. During my PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam (Germany) I specialized in network science and afterwards did a postdoc with Albert-László Barabási at Northeastern University in Boston (USA). Collaborating closely with Joseph Loscalzo from Harvard Medical School and Marc Vidal from Dana Farber Cancer Institute, we tried to lay out the basic theoretical framework for how the interactome can be understood as a map to study human disease. I am now a principal investigator at CeMM in Vienna (Austria), starting to build my own research group in the area of systems- and network-medicine.

Associate Professor at Cracow University of Economics
Full Professor of Physics at Department of Physics and Earth Sciences
Since 2002 I consider applications of statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics to complex networks. My current research interests are in statistical physics out-of-equilibrium, in particular in generic trade-offs between cost and precision with applications to biological systems. Moreover, I am analyzing heteroclinic dynamics for transient processes in ecological or neural systems . In general, I am also interested in the role of frustration in dynamical systems and the versatile action of stochastic fluctuations. Currently I study the impact of stochastic fluctuations in relation to the stability of power grids. In much earlier work, after the diploma in general relativity theory, my PhD was on a topic of particle physics, related to the phase structure of quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak part of the standard model. Afterwards I pursued such applictions of lattice gauge theory for some time.
Rodrigo Migueles Ramirez
Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University
I am a Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University. My research focuses primarily on the spread of infectious diseases through contact networks, though more recently I have been focusing on many other disease-related topics even if there isn't an underlying network that we're focused on. I coauthored a monograph on mathematical models of disease spread in networks (Mathematics of Epidemics on Networks), and I have written an open-source software package (https://epidemicsonnetworks.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) for modeling disease spread in contact networks. I spent a decade co-teaching network-based epidemiology at the Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases at U Washington. Although I am an applied mathematician, much of my time has been spent working in policy-driven settings. I did my PhD in fluid dynamics at Cambridge. Then I had postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a postdoc at the University of British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, and another postdoc split between the Harvard School of Public Health and the National Institutes for Health. I then took a faculty position at Penn State University, but following the birth of my daughter decided that living in the same place as my wife (who was in Boston) was a good idea. So we found positions at Monash University in Melbourne. We soon changed our minds on living in the same place (not really), and I began working at the Institute for Disease Modeling in Seattle, while my wife remained in Melbourne. I have now returned to Melbourne and am at La Trobe University.

PhD Candidate at University of Southampton
PhD Student at Aix-Marseille Université
I was born in Barga (Lucca, Italy) on 1 January 1992, and I grew up in Pisa where I accomplished most of my studies. I lived in Boston, MA, for a year in 2009-2010 and I spent six months in Paris as an ERASMUS student in 2016. I have a solid scientific and humanistic background due to the scientific lyceum I attended for five years (regular high-school duration in Italy). I spent my fourth high-school year in Boston, Massachusetts, at Brookline High School: this experience allowed me to achieve a solid competence in spoken and written English language. In 2011 I applied to study physics at King’s College, in London, where I was admitted to the Bachelor Physics programme. Eventually I opted for the University of Pisa, where, during my three years of Bachelor degree, I developed strong mathematical modeling and problem solving skills. I was introduced to the main different research fields and topics that physicists have challenged themselves with in the past century. I then decided to focus my graduate studies on the broad field of Statistical Physics and its applications to disordered and complex systems. Complexity therefore became more and more the core of my scientific interests, so I decided to move to Paris for a semester, in order to attend some dedicated courses at UPMC (Paris VI). The interdisciplinary nature of this area of statistical physics is what really fascinates me: applying the same tools and reasoning framework to so many different areas of natural and social sciences, from disordered physical systems to information theory, from molecular dynamics to economics, is a thrilling and challenging possibility. For these reasons I am decided to continue my academic education with a PhD that will allow me to deepen and strengthen my understanding of the theory of complex systems.

Associate Professor at Universitat de Barcelona
PhD in Physics (2000). Associate Professor at the Department of Fundamental Physics at the UB. Member of the steering committe of Complexitat.cat. Currently, secretary of the dean of the Faculty of Physics. I have been studying the financial markets from complex systems perspective. Both theoretically and empirically, I work in the statistical analysis of market data and its modeling through stochastic differential equations or random walks. Recently, I also have focused on analyzing human behavior of non-expert investors, modeling cooperation in humans and human mobility. In 2013 I conceive OpenSystems-UB, a research group that run scientific research based on citizen participation and artistic practices. I work with Barcelona Lab, a project promoted by the Institute of Culture of Barcelona City Council, cementing citizen science in the city and creating the Citizen Science Office. I am participating in citizen science experiments on human mobility (Bee-Path, Festival de Ciència, Tecnologia i Innovació 2012 and 2013), human behaviour and decision taking (Board Games Festival DAU Barcelona 2012 and 2013) and the development of a community of urban beekeeping (Urban Bees 2012 and 2013). I have been responsible for Science Area at Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona on behalf of the UB (2009-2012) . The results include seven exhibition projects in the Laboratory space. In 2012, the Laboratory of Arts Santa Monica was awarded the Antoni Caparros being the best knowledge transfer project of UB. I have curated the art-science and citizen science sections of the Festival de Ciència, Tecnologia i Innovació 2014. I also coordinate Sistemes Oberts, a teacher training program in Arts and Science in collaboration with MACBA (2012-2014).
Research Leader at ISI Foundation
For the past years, I have been a researcher in the “Mathematics & Foundation of Complex Systems” of ISI Foundation in Turin where, I dabble some would say with remarkable luck and a pinch of skill in network science and algebraic topology approaches to complex systems, especially the brain. In particular, I am now a Research Leader for both the "Topological Neuroscience" and "Foundations of Complex Systems" groups at ISI Foundation. Previously, I received my PhD from Imperial College London working on the interplay between information and dynamics on complex networks and —pretty much in a previous life— I got my MSc in Theoretical Physics (with capitals, because my MSc thesis was about the time when the Universe went kaboom).

Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at University of Edinburgh
Hi, I'm Valerio, and I am a lecturer (assistant professor) at University of Edinburgh. I work on complex socio-economic systems, and currently my research focusses on opinion dynamics. In particular, I study how social influence propagates and how to maximise its spread across the network, and I'm trying to tackle real-world problems such as high uncertainty and competition for attention. My background is quite interdisciplinary, and it includes Physics, Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Even now, my work is carried out with three different research groups, from finance to computer science. Before starting the PhD I was working as a financial modelling consultant, and I still enjoy getting my hands dirty by taking projects from industry, either as a consultant or as part of a research project. Beside work, I can't miss a Juventus game and need to eat pasta everyday. For more details, please visit my webpage www.valerio.rest

at University of Barcelona
Starting from my master's degree, my research interests were aligned with complex systems and networks modeling, numerical experiments and simulations design. My master's thesis included the construction of difference schemes for nonlinear singular perturbed equations with nonlinear boundary conditions, as well as proofs of their convergence. This continued with my PhD thesis on modeling social dynamics in small groups (identifying well established conflict dynamic and lock-in patterns, describing them in terms of phase transitions and attractors). My research experience continued with introduction to network science problems: I have obtained a Marie Curie research grant on data dissemination in opportunistic networks, and worked in the group of Professor Marco Conti at the Institute of Informatics and Telematics CNR in Pisa, Italy, where I developed novel content-centric routing algorithms and data dissemination models. One year after I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Denmark Technical University (crowd behavioral dynamics modeling), where I used Lennard-Johnes potential to approximate repulsion and attraction "social forces" (as per Helbing's model), which agreed well with the experimental data. Finally, during my last postdoc at University of Barcelona I have been working in the group of Professor Marián Boguñá — steering back to network science. There I have constructed a compartmentalized voter model on complex networks and showed (both analytically and numerically) that herding, consensus oscillations, opinion polarization and other related behaviors emerge spontaneously in this model under strong separation of time scales (published in Phys. Rev. E).
"Céline Rozenblat researches are widely directed on the relations between evolutions of powers and values and networks dynamics into systems of territories. In order to develop these topics in a comparative point of view, she built many large database on European cities and on networks since 1987. In particular, the question of comparizon was extremely delicate for European cities and she produced with Pumain and St-Julien, Cattan """"the concept of cities in Europe"""" for Eurostat (1991). She built since 1990 representative database on located multinational firms networks leading her to deal with territorial dynamics and actors' strategies in the same time. This duality obliged her to rethink multi-level approaches in geography, largely inspired by sociology of networks and physics. Diachronical and dynamic studies supply materials to develop spatial and dynamic models, simulations and vizualisations."

Assistant Professor at Queen's University
My group works uses statistical physics to study design problems in complex (and non-complex) systems. In problems ranging from materials science to technosocial systems, we develop quantitative frameworks to provide designers with answers to "why" questions that give a richer understanding of the structure of design problems than the "what" answers that typify optimization-based approaches to design.
