- Conference Objectives
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. These models can be seen as the simplest laboratories to study phenomena exhibited by
complex systems like self-organization processes, pattern formation, cooperation,
adaptation, competition, attractors, or multi-scaling phenomena. The objective of
this conference is to bring researchers working on discrete modeling of complex systems and
to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and presentation of results of their research.
- 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.
Abstracts of 1-2 pages should be sent electronically, via EasyChair conference system:
Submissions should be in the pdf format and prepared following the appolb.cls
format of Acta Physica Polonica B
which can be received together with a template file from here .
Abstracts are planned to be included in a TUCS (Turku Centere for Computer Science)
Lecture Notes publication that will be provided to all participants of the UC conference.
- Important dates:
----Abstract submission deadline: April 18, 2011,
----Notification to authors: May 2, 2011
Accepted abstracts will be schedules as talks or posters.
- Post Conference Proceedings
All participants of the Conference are invited to submit a paper for publication in the
in special issues of the Acta Physica
Polonica B Proceedings Supplement. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. We use EasyChair
conference system to manage paper submission. In order to submit a paper use the workshop
