Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on Coping with Complexity
October 19-20, 2011 Cluj-Napoca, Romania


The Center for the Study of Complexity from Babes-Bolyai University ( and the Romanian Institute for Science and Technology ( cordially invite scientists and researchers over the vast field of Complexity to exchange ideas within the first edition of the Coping with Complexity Conference (COPCOM) in Cluj Napoca, on October 19-20, 2011.

COPCOM aims at opening a dialogue between international researchers and practitioners from different disciplines related to the study of complexity. As complexity is a term with different connotations in various fields of science, COPCOM aims to be an highly interdisciplinary forum to discuss specific approaches in coping with complexity, covering a wide area of topics.

We invite submissions presenting significant advances in Complexity in the form of:
+ full-length research papers,
+ abstracts (up to two pages)

Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process. Selection criteria will be based on relevance, originality, significance, impact, technical soundness and quality of the presentation. Contributions are expected to provide original results, insights and theoretical and/or experimental innovations. Full-length papers must be in PDF, not exceeding 12 pages and conforming to the Latex template at the Springer's Instructions for Authors page. Contributions (both full-length and abstracts) are welcome through the system available at


A booklet with the abstracts/full versions will be distributed at the conference. Full version of all accepted papers will be invited post-conference for publication in one of the following journals: Studia Universitas Babes-Bolyai, Series Informatica ( and International Journal of Unconventional Computing (
