Conference Overview


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, ect. 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 modeling 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 modeling 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 modeling 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 modeling methodologies and their applications to analysis across different scales of dynamics of complex systems.

Call For Papers
Researchers and scientists working in the area of discrete modeling of complex systems are invited to submit abstracts on their research to be presented at the conference. Of particular interest are approaches: cellular automata, lattice gas cellular automata, agent based simulation models, individually based simulation models, networks. Both theoretical and applied research is of interest. Accepted abstracts will be scheduled as talks or posters.
