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
