ICCS:International Conference on Complex Systems CFP -------------------------------------------------- Announcement, Including Call for Papers Fourth International Conference on COMPLEX SYSTEMS Nashua, NH June 9-14, 2002 Host: New England Complex Systems Institute http://necsi.org necsi@necsi.org Conference Chairman: Yaneer Bar-Yam Executive Committee: Dan Braha, Helen Harte, Richard Lewontin, Ali Minai Joan Reede, Larry Rudolph, Temple Smith, Gunter Wagner This is the fourth in a series of conferences with two major aims: first, to investigate those properties or characteristics that appear to be common to the very different complex systems now under study; and second, to encourage cross fertilization among the many disciplines involved. PEDAGOGICAL SESSION: The conference will include pedagogical sessions on Sunday, June 9 covering fundamental knowledge in concepts, simulation, and analysis tools relevant to complex systems. SPECIAL TOPICAL SESSIONS: The special one-day Friday topical session is on Recent Advances in the Theory of Evolution. Additional special sessions will target topics in Complex Systems approaches to the War on Terrorism: international terrorist network, homeland security, urban/national systems, biological warfare, and related military conflicts. Sessions will be formed out of abstracts received on diverse topics. Individual submissions will be accepted on their merit. A list of subject areas follows, and an additional list of specific sessions is given below. ------------------------------------------------------ ICCS SUBJECT AREAS: UNIFYING THEMES IN COMPLEX SYSTEMS Sessions will be structured around both themes and systems. The themes are: EMERGENCE, STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION: substructure, the relationship of component to collective behavior, the relationship of internal structure to external influence, multiscale structure and dynamics. INFORMATICS: structuring, storing, accessing, and distributing information describing complex systems. COMPLEXITY: characterizing the amount of information necessary to describe complex systems, and the dynamics of this information. DYNAMICS: time series analysis and prediction, chaos, temporal correlations, the time scale of dynamic processes. SELF-ORGANIZATION: Pattern formation, evolution, development and adaptation. The system categories are: FUNDAMENTALS, PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL SYSTEMS: Spatio- temporal patterns and chaos, fractals, dynamic scaling, non-equilibrium processes, hydrodynamics, glasses, non-linear chemical dynamics, complex fluids, molecular self-organization, information and computation in physical systems, evolution. BIO-MOLECULAR & CELLULAR SYSTEMS: protein and DNA folding, bio-molecular informatics, membranes, cellular response and communication, genetic regulation, gene- cytoplasm interactions, development, cellular differentiation, primitive multicellular organisms, the immune system. PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SYSTEMS: Nervous system, neuro-muscular control, neural network models of brain, cognition, psychofunction, psychological dysfunction, mind control, pattern recognition, learning and development, man-machine interactions. ORGANISMS AND POPULATIONS: population biology, ecosystems, ecology, evolution. HUMAN SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEMS: Corporate and social structures and dynamics, markets, urban development, the global economy, military systems, global conflict, the Internet. ENGINEERED SYSTEMS: Product and product manufacturing, nano-technology, modified and hybrid biological organisms, computer based interactive systems, agents, artificial life, artificial intelligence, and robots communication networks, traffic systems, emergent control of distributed systems. ----------------------------------------------------- Topical sessions for which papers are specifically solicited: Evolution Complex Systems Approaches to the War on Terrorism Dynamics and Patterns in Physical Systems Biocomplexity Modeling Biological Systems Medical Complexity Networks Neural Systems Modeling Social Systems Management of Human Organizations Military systems Defining Complexity ----------------------------------------------------- REGISTRATION: Conference attendance is limited to about 400 participants. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis from those active or interested in becoming active in the study of complex systems. Application should be done through the web at http://necsi.org/events/iccs/iccs4register.html If you do not have web access and are interested in presenting a paper or simply attending the conference, please apply to iccs@necsi.org and provide the following information: Name Affiliation Address Telephone number Fax number E-mail address AND (if you wish to present a paper) --an abstract (no more than 500 words) of a presentation to be given at the conference OR (if you do not wish to present a paper) --a description of your interests. APPLICATION DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 15, 2001 ------------------------------------------------ PROCEEDINGS AND JOURNAL PUBLICATION OF ARTICLES Authors whose submissions are accepted for presentation should plan to submit full papers by the Registration deadline (May 1). These will be reviewed and, if accepted, published in the peer reviewed on-line journal InterJournal and as a conference proceedings volume. Formatting instructions for the papers will be made available and should be followed carefully. ------------------------------------------------ DATES: Applications Due: December 15 Early Registration: February 15 Registration: April 1 Paper submission: May 1 Conference: June 9-14 ----------------------------------------------------- REGISTRATION: Note: Registration fees include lunches served all conference days except Sunday. Registration fees: Regular(member) Student(member) Early Registration: Feb 15 $350($300) $175($150) Registration: Apr 1 $450($400) $275($250) An additional $100 will be charged for those who register at the conference site. Payment information will be sent out with notification of application acceptance. For NECSI membership information see http://necsi.org/membership/member.html Annual Membership Dues: Student $20, Academic $50, Other $100 ----------------------------------------------------- FINANCIAL SUPPORT: We anticipate having some funds available to assist conferees according to need. Application to the conference organizers (iccs@necsi.org) may be made for this financial support. ----------------------------------------------------- LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS: The conference will be held at the Sheraton Nashua in Nashua, New Hampshire, on the Massachusetts New Hampshire border 40 minutes from Boston by car. Rooms must be reserved with the hotel at: tel: (800) 325-3535 (indicate Sheraton Nashua) tel: (603) 888-9970 (direct line to the hotel) fax: (603) 891-4179 A block of rooms has been reserved at a conference discount rate of $129 per night (single or double) for the week of the conference (including a two day margin). These rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To receive the discount rate identify yourself as a member of the New England Complex Systems Institute Convention. Cancellations may be made up to 48 hours in advance without penalty. A block of rooms has also been reserved at a conference discount rate of $61.99 per night (up to four in a room) at the Red Roof Inn: (800) 843-7663 / (603) 888-1893 e-mail: i0122@redroof.com http://www.redroof.com which is the closest alternative accommodation to the conference. To receive the discount rate identify yourself as a member of the NECSI Convention or room block #B122ICCS ----------------------------------------------------- I look forward to seeing you there. Best, Yaneer From: Yaneer Bar-Yam <yaneer@necsi.org> (by way of John Sterman) ------------------------------------------------ Yaneer Bar-Yam President New England Complex Systems Institute http://necsi.org ------------------------------------------------
