SFI is playing a leading role in an international scientific conference on complex systems science to be held this fall in Tempe, Arizona.

The annual meeting of the European Conferences on Complex Systems (ECCS) in Tempe, Arizona, is being organized by Arizona State University, with the support of SFI and the Complex Systems Society.

Since 2003, the conference has served to coalesce the international, interdisciplinary science community and promote the science of complex systems. It has often highlighted the work of SFI scientists.

This year’s conference, CCS’15, will be the first held in North America, “to foster and multiply contacts between the European, North American, and Asian communities working in this domain,” according to the official announcement for CCS’15.

SFI External Professor Sander van der Leeuw, who co-directs the new ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems, is serving as the CCS’15 Conference Chair. The conference runs September 28-October 2, 2015. The deadline for abstracts is April 30, 2015.
