New Frontiers in AI: What can ALife offer AI? The fields of AI and ALife share a common history and a common approach: true understanding of living systems can only be demonstrated by successfully re-creating them using biology and/or technology. But mind and life are two of the most mysterious systems known to us, so re-creating them is exceedingly challenging, exciting and, at times, surprising. Recently, AI has "thrown down the gauntlet" by making large strides forward in understanding some aspects of intelligence, and intelligence is one of many phenomena expressed by living systems; this suggests that more big discoveries are yet to come. So, we invite you to join us, July 2020, to continue the search for answers to life, the universe, and everything.Read more
IC2S2 solicits abstracts from researchers in the social sciences with a clear component of computation, simulation or data analysis or data science. This includes for example sociology, psychology, communication science, anthropology, media studies, political science, public health, and economics. In addition, contributions from computer science, data science, and computational science with real-world applications in the social sciences or related fields, are welcome. We emphatically welcome abstracts that try to integrate both components. This is not limited to empirical studies; more general theoretical contributions are also welcome.Read more
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 26-31, 2020, in Nashua, NH, USA.Read more
The SFI Global Sustainability Summer School (GSSS) provides an intensive two-week program on the leading role of cities as complex systems driving the global sustainability transition.Read more
We call for applications to the 7th Mediterranean School of Complex Networks to be held in Salina Island, Italy. The aim is to provide a theoretical background to students (Master, PhD) and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science. There are also opportunities for financial support, with two scholarships sponsored by the Complex Systems Society. Important dates: 31 March 2020 Early registration deadline (no payment needed at this stage) 15 April 2020 Notification of Acceptance 15 May 2020 Registration deadline (payment needed) 5-12 Sep 2020 Summer School Website for details about previous editions, preliminary program, scientific committee and speakers: http://mediterraneanschoolcomplex.net/ School directors: Manlio De Domenico and Alex ArenasRead more
This Summer School is based in a logic of deep interdisciplinarity, oriented towards promoting productive, collaborative, critical and creative dialogues between different disciplines and modes of thinking, between theory and research and the practices that “in the real world” enact and realise, critique or present alternative or complementary proposals to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). An insufficient recognition of the complexity of the problems that sustain the SDG and the realities they aim to dress, as well as of the need to develop modes of thinking and practices congruent with such complexity, may prevent or limit te success of this new agenda, even leading, in unpredictable ways to the configurations of new, more or less preferred or unwanted realities. This Summer School aims to stimulate the discussion around the SDG, guided by critical, alternative and complementary views. We invite academics, activists, intervenors, educators and whoever more is interested in participating in the co-construction of new ways of thinking and action that inform the pursue of sustainable and desirable alternatives for the place of humanity.Read more
The Complex Systems Institute (www.csi.ugent.be) at Ghent University invites you to the Ghent Summer School in Data and Network Science with a focus on socio-economic problems. The school will have a dynamic mix of theory, research seminars and computer labs, plus allocated time to develop a coached data science team project. You will also have an opportunity to present your own research in a lightning talk. The school will cover the fundamentals of data and network science, spatial data science, financial networks, and game theory on social networks.Read more
SMEEB 2020 conference will be held in Venice, September 21-24, 2020, at the European Center of Living Technology (ECLT). The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists with different backgrounds (mathematics, biology, physics and computing) interested in microbial ecology and evolutionary biology (both theory and experiments). We will discuss important and recent research topics in these areas as well as methods and ideas. Topics will include stochastic population dynamics, quantitative and systemic biology, community ecology of microbes, statistical mechanics models in ecology, evolution in microbial communities, biodiversity coexistence and species interactions. The style of the workshop will purposely be informal to encourage discussions. Invited Speakers(*tbc): Otto X. Cordero, Eric Dykeman, Daniel Fisher, Nigel Goldenfeld*, Susan Holmes*, Terry Hwa, Eleni Katifori, David Nelson, Derek Tittensor, Amandine Veber. The call of abstracts for contributed talks will close on May 24, 2020 (EasyChair submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=smeeb2020 ). Please bring this announcement to the attention of anyone who may be interested, especially students and post-docs who are not in this mailing list. There are 2 registration fee waivers for Ph.Ds / young Post-docs. Look in the website for all info. The attendance fee of the workshop will be 200 Euro, which includes coffee breaks and workshop material. However, owing to the current Covid-19 epidemic, the payment is not open at the moment. Once the workshop will eventually be confirmed, we will open the payment link and contact those who have pre-registered or submitted an abstract for the final registration.Read more
Complexity, understood as the emergence of new macro properties from the interactions of basic components, is a pervasive characteristic in natural, artificial and social systems. The Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) is the biggest and most important annual meeting of the international complex systems community. It comes under the auspices of the Complex Systems Society. This edition, after successful events in Singapore , Thessaloniki (Greece) , Cancun (Mexico) and Amsterdam (Netherlands), will take place in the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, Spain, organized by IFISC (CSIC-UIB).Read more
The International Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications aims at bringing together researchers from different scientific communities working on areas related to complex networks. Two types of contributions are welcome: theoretical developments arising from practical problems, and case studies where methodologies are applied. Both contributions are aimed at stimulating the interaction between theoreticians and practitioners.Read more
The Complex Networks Winter Workshop (CNWW) is a week-long international school that offers an extraordinary opportunity for participants to engage in rigorous transdisciplinary complexity science research alongside some of the top researchers in the field of networks. The CNWW is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals. The lectures will present open problems and recent advances in the field of complex networks. Participants of this program will collaborate in small transdisciplinary research groups involving other participants as well as faculty. All course lectures will be given in English.Read more
