A summer season full of events

Going to big conferences can be overwhelming, especially for young researchers that have not been part of the community a long time. 
This summer season there are going to be two major conferences for our community: ICCS on July 22nd-28th and CCS on September 23rd-29th.

To help with the uneasiness we organised informal, fun events with prominent members of the Complex Systems Society to learn from and get to know each other before the beginning of a conference.

In July

The Society of Young Network Scientists (SYNS) and the young researchers of the Complex Systems Society (yrCSS) are proud to announce “My Favorite Line of Code” a pre-conference event for young researchers at ICCS2018 in Cambridge (MA).

How Does it work?
Students and young researchers give short (2-3 minute) informal talks about a line(s) of code that is integral to their work.
We’ll be hearing wisdom from the experts that will be sharing their favorite line of code:

Simon DeDeo (Carnegie Mellon University),
Marta Gonzalez (University of California, Berkeley),
Esteban Moro (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid & MIT)

In September

The yrCSS is glad to bring to you the 5th edition of the CCS Warm-up!

Coinciding with the Conference on Complex Systems, and profiting the opportunity offered by the presence of a wide variety of experts in different topics in Thessaloniki, we are organising a school for PhD students and early-stage researchers to prepare for such a big event. 

Going to big conferences like CCS can be overwhelming, especially for people that have not been part of the community a long time. The school aims to offer young researchers the opportunity to learn new methods, present their work and meet fellow researchers, so to take the most out of the 5-days-long Conference on Complex Systems.

The school is going to be a 2 days informal event to be held the weekend before the CCS’18 conference on September 21-23 2018, with three 3h long courses from prominent researchers of the  Complex Systems Society, flash presentations from the school participants and a day long social event.
