The 2016 Summer Solstice - 8th International Conference on Discrete Models of Complex Systems will be held at the University of Aveiro, Portugal. Complex systems are pervasive in many fields of science and we encounter them everyday and everywhere in our life. Their examples include financial markets, highway transportation networks, telecommunication networks, human economies, social networks, immunological systems, ant colonies, etc. The key feature of a complex system is that it is composed of large number of interconnected and interacting entities exhibiting much richer dynamical properties on global scale than they could be inferred from the properties and behaviours of its individual entities. Complex systems are studied in many areas of natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and mathematical sciences. The integral part of these interdisciplinary studies forms discrete modelling in terms of cellular automata, lattice gas cellular automata, multi-agent based models, or networks. These models can be seen as the simplest digital laboratories to study phenomena exhibited by complex systems like self-organization processes, pattern formation, cooperation, adaptation, competition, attractors, or multi-scale phenomena The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from around the world working on discrete modelling of complex systems and analysis of their dynamics. The objective of this conference is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas, presentation of results of current research and to discuss potential future directions and developments in the field of discrete modelling of complex systems and analysis of their dynamics from methodological and phenomenological point of view. The conference will cover both theoretical and applied research. It will focus on discrete modelling methodologies and their applications to analysis across different scales of dynamics of complex systems. The Summer Solstice conference aims to strengthen the existing connections between different research groups around the world and to further disseminate the ideas of discrete dynamics modeling theory and applications in analysis of a variety of complex systems across different scales, from biology and nanoscience to technology networks and social dynamics.
