            Complex Systems Studies Young Researchers Session

                        ECCS'10 Satellite Meeting

http://phd.eccs2010.eu                      Lisbon, September 15 , 2010
=======================================================================

At  pivotal  moments   throughout  history,  technological  innovation
triggers  massive  social   and  cultural  transformation.  Apparently
unrelated developments, which had  been gradually unfolding for years,
suddenly converge to create changes that are as disruptive as they are
creative.  We  are  currently  living  in a  moment  of  extraordinary
complexity when  systems and structures that have  long organized life
are changing at an unprecedented rate. Such rapid and pervasive change
creates the need to develop new ways of understanding the world and of
interpreting  our   experience.  (Marc  C.  Taylor,   “The  Moment  of
Complexity: Emerging Network Culture”)

In the last  decade there has been a growing interest  in the study of
complex systems. The concept of complexity is pervasive in many fields
of research,  from social sciences  such as politics and  economics to
'hard' sciences such as  theoretical physics and systems biology. This
growing interest  and concurrent widening of  research domains creates
the need  to develop  new ways of  understanding and  interpreting the
world. This  is particularly important for  young researchers tackling
their initial research questions within the domain of complex systems.

The Young  Researchers Session  @ ECCS2010 seeks  to bring  together a
group  of complex  systems science  researchers at  an early  stage in
their careers  (graduates, M.Sc., Ph.D.,  Postdoctoral researchers and
Lecturers),  to facilitate  a dialogue  beween individuals  and groups
from an intentionally diverse set  of domains. We aim to encourage the
presentation   of  experimental   results   within  this   supportive,
interdisciplinary  group, and to  foster collaboration  between people
from within the  complex systems community who may  not otherwise have
come across experimental techniques  and approaches from outside their
'comfort zone'.

Emphasis will  therefore be on creating a  stimulating and interactive
environment, with a focus also on the bigger questions at large within
complex systems  research. To  this end, presenters  will be  asked to
allude to  the 'bigger picture'  questions within their domain  and in
complex systems science as  a whole from their perspective. Crucially,
we  aim to establish  a collaborative  environment that  will continue
after ECCS2010 to foster these links.

=======================================================================
Meeting agenda
=======================================================================

The workshop will  take place on September 15th,  2010, and will focus
on a limited number of pre-selected contributions, incorporating group
discussions.

Some important issues that may be discussed:

*   How to  ensure a research  activity trajectory from Ph.D.   
students to
all early career  researchers.
*   Research methodologies, tools, datasets and related problems.
*   Current research programs.
*   Current 'state of the art' experimental  results within complex
systems science.
*   How to set up  social media  presence for  complex systems
science  young career researchers.
*   How  to   network  curricula.  Integration  with  online
presentation of  educational  materials   e.g. assystcomplexity.eu,
videolectures.net
*   SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis of
young researchers personal resources.
*   Ph.D.  vs M.Sc. v's job opportunities.
*   What to publish, how to publish, when to publish.
