We are pleased to announce the 5th Annual meeting on The Dynamics of Complex Systems at UAF. This will be an interdisciplinary workshop-style meeting focusing on application of the methods and concepts from complex system dynamics to all areas of science and social science. Special emphasis will be on common features in complex systems and the development of techniques aimed at characterizing the dynamics of these systems. This year we will once again highlight IPY related areas from processes to people and expand that to feature interacting complex systems. The interacting systems could vary from the interactions between biological systems and climate, to engineering systems and people (and of course everything in between).
This meeting will cover a broad range of topics. Examples of topics for the 2010 meeting include complex dynamics in IPY, networks, plasmas, biological systems, fluid dynamics, climate systems, social systems, characterization of complex systems, data analysis, and model-experiment comparison.
The meeting will be structured around a series of invited talks meant to stimulate discussion and collaboration, each followed by shorter talks related to the just presented invited talk. There will also be sufficient poster space for posters to be left up for the duration of the meeting. We also plan on having extensive time available for discussion, both formal and informal. We hope that this format will stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration. Finally, on one afternoon, an optional group outing will be planned.
This 5th Dynamics of Complex Systems meeting will be held in Fairbanks, Alaska from March 8-12 on the campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
