| 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, biochemical pathways, biological systems etc. The key feature of a complex
system is that it is composed of large number of interconnected and interacting entities
whose agregate activity is much richer on global scale than it could be inferred
from properties and behaviours of the 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 self-organization processes, pattern formation, cooperation, adaptation, competition, attractors, or multi-scaling phenomena - phenomena characteristic for complex systems.
The aim of the 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.
The Summer Solstice 2018 Conference topics are focused on, but not limited to, the following:
- Theory of modeling and discrete model simulation by cellular automata
- Hidden geometries in networks
- Innovative methods and modern tools of multiscale computing
- Agent systems of spatially extended systems
- Integrative approach: discrete models driven by data
The Post Conference Proceedings are planned to appear in
Acta Physica Polonica B Proceedings Supplement.
All conference participants are invited to submit a paper for publication in the Proceedings. All submissions will be peer-reviewed.
