Winter Online Doctoral Workshop 2018

New Directions for Complex Systems Research

29-31 January 2018

 

The first edition of the Winter Online Doctoral Workshop on New Directions for Complex Systems Research will be held on January 29-31, 2018. The workshop will bring together doctoral students from all fields related with complex systems research for engaging and friendly exchange of ideas. Doctoral students who are conducting interdisciplinary research in the field of complex systems are very welcome to submit literature reviews or early research abstracts. By doing so doctoral candidates will not only have the possibility to have a first evaluation on their research from two blind reviews but can also be a part of a process of intense exchange with other doctoral candidates who are researching on similar fields, creating an enriching contact network and facilitating future interaction.

Domains

The workshop aims at nurturing new insights on domains of complex systems research such as:

  • Foundations of Complex Systems
  • Information and Communication Technologies
  • Cognition and Linguistics
  • Economics and Finance
  • Infrastructure, Planning and Environment
  • Biological an (Bio)Medical Complexity
  • Socio-Ecological Systems
  • Complexity in Physics and Chemistry

Types of submissions

The workshop welcomes original submissions in the form of literature reviews or abstracts such as:

  • Literature reviews in any of the workshop domains.
  • Abstracts of completed research in any of the workshop domains.
  • Abstracts describing case studies in any of the workshop domains.
  • Abstracts presenting doctoral work-in-progress, related to incomplete and ongoing research, or ideas for future research, in order to generate discussion and feedback in any of the workshop domains.

Abstracts should include research objectives, proposed methodology, and discussion of the outcomes.
