The workshop Complexity72h is an interdisciplinary event whose aim is to bring together young researchers from different fields of complex systems. Inspired by the 72h Hours of Science, participants will form working groups aimed at carrying out a project in a three-day time, i.e. 72 hours. Each group's goal is to upload on the arXiv a report of their work by the end of the event. A team of tutors will propose the projects, and assist and guide each group in developing their project. Alongside teamwork, participants will attend lectures from scientists coming from different fields of complex systems, and applied workshops.Read more
The 15th Experimental Chaos and Complexity Conference is a biennial event that, since its first edition in 1991 in Crystal City (USA) has been held alternatively in European and American cities. This year will be held in Madrid, Spain, on June 4-7, 2018, organized by the Rey Juan Carlos University. It is a highly interdisciplinary conference, spanning classical nonlinear systems such as hydrodynamics, electronics, optical and electronic chaotic and pattern forming systems, complex networks, but also including biological, medical and sometimes even social science topics. The aim of the conference is to highlight experiments and experimental challenges on nonlinear science, although the conference attracts many theorists and mathematicians providing a theoretical framework to observations or new methods for analyzing data in this generation of Big Data engineering analysis. We encourage the participation of the nonlinear and complex systems community wishing to share their recent experimental findings about nonlinear dynamics in: Brain and neurons, optics and lasers, electronic networks, social science and transportation systems, data science, machine learning and cyber security, granular media and active matter, climate and earth, fluids & plasma, ecological systems and evolution, experimental game theory, systems biology, cardiac waves and tumor growth, and chemical systems, or any other topic related with the general scope of the conference.Read more
NetSci 2018, the flagship conference of the Network Science Society, aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging area of network science. The conference fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design.Read more
The rapid development of informational technologies has provoked a wide debate in the academic community concerning their influence in human autonomous action, generating controversies in the areas of Epistemology, Philosophy of Information, Ethics, Science of Information and Cognitive Science, among others. One of the reasons for controversies concerns the positive and negative aspects incurring from interactions, registrations and manipulations of the information made available by ubiquitous computing (acting uninterruptedly through cameras, mobile phones, credit cards, various kinds of sensors, etc.), in databases on traces left in the networks of activities of individuals and social and political organizations. In the tenth version of EIICA, controversial questions about the relation between Information, Knowledge, Autonomous Action and Big Data will be discussed. An emphasis will be given to the theme of the apparent change of paradigm in philosophy and science in the 21th century, which would already be happening through replacements of causal explanations of events by explanations through massive data correlations (Big Data). Such change would supposedly be altering not only our worldview but also knowledge production and organization via Big Data. Such debate will serve as a common thread to the reflection on the continuity or revolution in philosophy and science, from questions on privacy, mechanicism and autonomous (individual and collective) action. To the discussion of such subjects, were invited renowned national and international scholars in the area.Read more
Catalysed by the growing data availability and the ever rising computing power, the advents of CAs and DCSs are becoming increasingly appreciated in many fields of computer science, and the environmental, physical and biological sciences. This follows from their intrinsic simplicity while nonetheless allowing to describe complex environmental, physical and biological processes, as opposed to more established modelling paradigms. For these reasons, they are used used extensively in population biology, geography, materials science, and so on. It is a dynamic field in both theory and applications. The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major advances in the field and the development of new tools, to support the development of theory and applications of CA and DCS and to identify and study within an inter- and multidisciplinary context, the important fundamental aspects, concepts, notions and problems concerning CA and DCS.Read more
The Enrico Fermi Schools are a highly prestigious series of summer schools of the Italian Physical Society with a tradition of more than 60 years and with many Nobel laureates as lecturers (https://www.sif.it/attivita/scuola_fermi/). The International Schools devote special care in planning the program and produces proceedings of the school that have become classics. Recently an increasing number of interdisciplinary topics have been selected and our school fits into this trend. Our school will consider complex systems of social and economic origin by teaching and discussing concepts and topics of computational social science and econophysics. These are fields, where physicists, computer scientists, sociologists and economists join efforts to understand the laws governing the complex system of human interactions.Read more
The second edition of this school wants to attract PhD Students and practitioners to the exciting field of Modern Statistical Physics.

The International Conference on Complex Systems is a unique interdisciplinary forum that unifies and bridges the traditional domains of science and a multitude of real world systems. Participants will contribute and be exposed to mind expanding concepts and methods from across the diverse field of complex systems science. The conference will be held July 22-27, 2018, in Cambridge, MA, USA. Special Topic - Artificial Intelligence: This year’s conference will include a day on AI, including its development and potential future. This session will be chaired by Iyad Rahwan of MIT's Media Lab.Read more
Since 2004, the Conference on Complex Systems organized by the CSS, is the most important annual meeting for the complex systems research community. Until 2014, it was the European Conference on Complex Systems. In 2015, it became CCS with its first "global" edition in the USA. In 2016, CCS came back to Europe and took place in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In 2017, CCS was organized in Cancun, Mexico, for its first edition in Latin America. In 2018, CCS2018 will be organized in Thessaloniki, Greece, by Panos Argyrakis and will take place on Sept. 23-28.Read more
