VI Jornada de la Complexitat: Interdisciplinary Research on Complexity

The greatest challenges faced by society lay at the interface between traditional scientific disciplines —chemistry and economics, social sciences and computer science, physics and biology. A common characteristic of these challenges is that they involve many components that influence each other in nontrivial ways; it is in this sense that we talk about complexity and complex systems. With many recognized researchers in complex systems, Catalonia has become an international hub for complexity science. Complexitat.cat is the Catalan Network for the Study of Complex Systems. Complexitat.cat brings together researchers from disparate disciplines with the goal of promoting the research and popularization of complexity science in Catalonia.

Among other initiatives, Complexitat.cat organizes an annual meeting, in which its members gather for a day to display their work, discuss and exchange ideas, or as an opportunity to meet future students. This year, the VI Jornada de la Complexitat: "Interdisciplinary Research on Complexity" will be held at the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3), Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, on May 24, organized by the recently created research group on Complex Systems CoSIN3.

In this edition we will have the speaker Clara Granell: she did a major on Computer Engineering and a master on Artificial Intelligence at the University Rovira i Virgili, and she is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of North Carolina in the United States. She has been awarded with the "Category Women ICT revelation" during the second edition of Women ICT Award 2016 of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

If you are interested in this event but cannot attend you have the opportunity to register for the "row 0" option and follow it by live video streaming.

Deadline for registration extended until April 28th, 2017.
