Taking advantage of the presence of a wide variety of experts in different topics meeting for the Conference on Complex Systems (CCS), we are organising a two-day informal event for PhD students and early-stage scientists. You will have the opportunity to attend talks by prominent researchers, learn about the scientific and life experience of young and senior colleagues, and – last but not least – have fun and socialise!

Importantly, thanks to the support of the Network Science Institute, this edition of the warm-up will be free of charge for anyone attending the main conference! As we are aware that staying in London may still incur costs that may discourage some to attend, we will open a call for travel grants specifically for this event, stay tuned!

Event: August 30-31, 2024, the Friday and Saturday just before CCS.



Here are a few things that you can expect to happen during the event:

  • talks about behind the scenes aspects of scientific work,
  • an interactive workshop on challenging aspects of academia,
  • specifically tailored trivia games,
  • an on-site social event.

The sessions will be divided by lunch and coffee breaks that we will provide.

We’ll release the schedule and our list of speakers as soon as we finalise them!


More information about registration for the Warm-Up coming soon!
