    E C C S ' 10  -  European Conference on Complex Systems

    Lisbon, September 13-17, 2010

1st CALL FOR PAPERS  -  submissions deadline February 15, 2010

The main goal of the ECCS’10 conference is to stimulate and facilitate  
the presentation and discussion of new ideas, methods, and approaches  
related to different domains, both theoretical and applied, in the  
general area of Complex Systems research.  Previous ECCS conferences  
have provided an excellent environment allowing the propagation of new  
ideas to a large audience, leading to the publication of papers in  
several journals (see, for instance, ).

**** SCOPE ****

The range of domains that ECCS has dealt with, and continues to deal  
with, is diverse, concerning a variety of Complex Systems research

Policymaking; Urban Planning; Internet; Transport & Power Networks;  
Medical & Health Systems.

* Track B: Collective Human Behaviour and Society
Philosophy of Science; Economics & Finance; Sociology; Psychology;  
Game theory.

* Track C: Interacting Populations and Environment
