The yrCSS is glad to bring to you the 6th edition of the CCS Warmup!

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 Singapore, we are organising a school for PhD students and early-stage researchers to prepare for such a big event. The school aims to offer young researchers the opportunity to learn new methods, present their work and meet fellow researchers.

The school is going to be a three days informal event to be held the weekend before the CCS’19 conference on September 27-29 2019, with three or four 3h long courses from prominent senior researchers, flash presentations from the school participants and a day long social event. Everything is being organised to help the participants get the most out of the CCS’19 Conference in Singapore.

More details will be available soon.

The Speakers

Carlos Gershenson is a tenured research professor at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. He has a broad variety of academic interests, including self-organising systems, complexity, artificial life, information, evolution, cognition, artificial societies, and philosophy. He is a tenured full-time research professor, leader of the Self-organising Systems Lab. Currently, He is on a sabbatical year as a visiting professor at SENSEable City Lab, MIT, and at MOBS Lab in Northeastern. Additionally, he is Editor-in-Chief of Complexity Digest and Complexity-at-Large Editor of Complexity.

Vittoria Colizza is Director of Research at Inserm (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) & Sorbonne University, Faculté de Médecine, Paris, France. She leads the EPIcx lab working on the characterisation and modeling of the spread of emerging infectious diseases, by integrating methods of complex systems with statistical physics approaches, computational sciences, geographic information systems, and mathematical epidemiology. In 2017 she obtained the French academic degree HDR (Habilitation a Diriger des Recherches) and the Erdős–Rényi Award.

Stefan Thurner is full professor for Science of Complex Systems at the Medical University of Vienna, where he chairs Section for Science of Complex Systems. He is external professor at the Santa Fe Institute, senior researcher at IIASA, and president of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. He started his career with contributions to theoretical particle physics and gradually shifted his research focus to the understanding of complex systems. He is interested in network theory, evolutionary systems, life sciences, economics and finance and lately in social sciences. He holds two patents.
