Ninth International Conference on Complex Networks & Their Applications Madrid, Spain December 1- 3, 2020

The International Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications aims at bringing together researchers from different scientific communities working on areas related to complex networks. Two types of contributions are welcome: theoretical developments arising from practical problems, and case studies where methodologies are applied. Both contributions are aimed at stimulating the interaction between theoreticians and practitioners.


Complexity Weekend: Virtual COVID-19 Hackathon | May 22-24, 2020

Team Up Against COVID-19

Meet new collaborators and learn Complexity Science by doing.

Help to address the unprecedented, interconnected problems created and exposed by this pandemic. Complexity Science is an interdisciplinary and inclusive framework for studying, designing, and controlling Complex systems. Over the course of one weekend, you will learn about Complexity Science from a variety of perspectives while developing solutions in a team setting to address:

Shelter in Place Policy
Supply Chains
Vaccine Research
Ventilator Shortage
Mental Health
Many other ongoing problems

Here’s what to expect during this weekend experience:

This event will feature Complexity Science-inspired lectures, discussions, and workshops on Friday night and Saturday day. All attendees will then engage in a collective brainstorming and team formation process Saturday afternoon, followed by a facilitated hackathon experience with these teams on Sunday.


Thermodynamics 2.0 | International Conference

June 22-24, 2020


The International Conference on Thermodynamics 2.0, ICT2.0 in short, is all about coevolution of sciences – identifying and connecting dots of scientific revolutions in natural and social sciences.

ICT2.0 aims to empower science, engineering and humanity. A short-term objective of ICT2.0 is a blueprint of bridge between two cultures commonly referred to as natural science and social science.


Tenth International Conference on Complex Systems — ICCS 2020 will be an online event.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Executive Committee has made the decision to move ICCS 2020 to an online-only event.

While the outlook for the unprecedented challenges we are facing from COVID-19 remain uncertain, our values are clearer than ever. The health and safety of our communities—academic, local, and business—are of the utmost priority. Further, we know as complex systems scientists that we must play our part by endeavoring to fragment our physical contact networks, yet strengthen our virtual social networks. We also remain committed to the pursuit of creating and sharing knowledge, and wish to honor our promise to provide a rich forum in which to do this. It is with these tenets in mind that we made the decision to make ICCS 2020 a 100% online-only event.

What you need to know:

  • The dates remain the same: July 26th – July 31st 2020

  • Registration has reopened, but If you have already registered for the live event, we will soon be contacting you directly with more details and information on refunds

  • We encourage you to continue submitting abstracts or papers on EasyChair

  • …especially if your work relates to COVID-19.

We are excited to rise to the occasion of conducting a large conference virtually and look forward to “seeing” you all in July! If you have any questions, we encourage you to get in touch:

Stochastic Models and Experiments in Ecology and Biology 2020 Conference – Venice 21-24th September

SMEEB 2020 conference will be held in Venice, September 21-24, 2020, at the European Center of Living Technology (ECLT). 

 The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists with different backgrounds (mathematics, biology, physics and computing) interested in microbial ecology and evolutionary biology (both theory and experiments). We will discuss important and recent research topics in these areas as well as methods and ideas. 
Topics will include stochastic population dynamics, quantitative and systemic biology, community ecology of microbes, statistical mechanics models in ecology, evolution in microbial communities, biodiversity coexistence and species interactions. The style of the workshop will purposely be informal to encourage discussions. 
Invited Speakers(*tbc): Otto X. Cordero, Eric Dykeman, Daniel Fisher, Nigel Goldenfeld*, Susan Holmes*, Terry Hwa, Eleni Katifori, David Nelson, Derek Tittensor, Amandine Veber. 
 The call of abstracts for contributed talks will close on May 24, 2020 (EasyChair submission link: ). 

 Please bring this announcement to the attention of anyone who may be interested, especially students and post-docs who are not in this mailing list. There are 2 registration fee waivers for Ph.Ds / young Post-docs. Look in the website for all info. The attendance fee of the workshop will be 200 Euro, which includes coffee breaks and workshop material. However, owing to the current Covid-19 epidemic, the payment is not open at the moment. Once the workshop will eventually be confirmed, we will open the payment link and contact those who have pre-registered or submitted an abstract for the final registration.
