E C C S ' 10 - European Conference on Complex Systems
Lisbon, September 13-17, 2010
* Submissions deadline extension: March 8, 2010
* Publications: special issues in journals (see http://eccs2010.eu/publications )
* Track descriptions have been updated
The main goal of the ECCS’10 conference is to stimulate and facilitate the presentation and discussion of new ideas, methods, and approaches related to different domains, both theoretical and applied, in the general area of Complex Systems research.
ECCS conferences provide an excellent environment allowing the propagation of new ideas to a large audience, leading to the publication of papers in several journals (see http://eccs2010.eu/publications ).
++++ SCOPE ++++
The range of domains that ECCS has dealt with, and continues to deal with, is diverse, concerning a variety of Complex Systems research areas. The ECCS'10 main conference is organized in the following tracks:
* Track A: Policy, Planning & Infrastructure - Policymaking; Design Processes; Environmental Decision Making; Management; Construction and Manufacturing; Energy and Sustainability; Urban Planning; Built Environment; Internet; Transport & Power Networks; Medical & Health Systems.
* Track B: Collective Human Behaviour and Society - Philosophy of Science; Economics & Finance; Sociology; Psychology; Game theory.
* Track C: Interacting Populations and Environment - Climate Change; Geography; Pollution; Demography; Ecology; Epidemiology.
* Track D: Complexity and Computer Science - Natural and Pervasive Computing; Global Computing Infrastructure; Swarms and Robot Teams; Mobile and Fleet Computing; Graphs and Neural Networks; Language and Cognition; Collaborative Human Computer Networks.
* Track E: From Molecules to Living Systems - Self-assembly & Self-organisation; Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Neuroscience; Systems Biology; Medicine & Physiology.
* Track F: Mathematics and Simulation - Mathematics; Theoretical Physics; Modelling; Theory of Simulation (both numerical mathematics and agent based); Network Theory.
++++ PUBLICATIONS ++++
Accepted papers will be edited in a CD-Rom by the Complex Systems Society. The CD-Rom will be provided to all attainers of the conference.
Also, selected papers will be proposed for publication in ECCS'10 special issues on the following journals:
* Advances in Complex System (topical issue to be defined)
* The European Physical Journal B (papers concerning statistical physics)
* International Journal of Agent Technologies and Systems (papers concerning agent modelling)
* Theory in Biosciences (papers concerning biological systems)
* Foundations of Science (papers concerning philosophy of science)
