E C C S ' 10 - European Conference on Complex Systems
Lisbon, September 13-17, 2010


    * Deadline for the main conference: March 8, 2010. This is a hard  

    * Satellite Meetings are now announced at

    * On-line registration is now open at

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  

ECCS conferences provide an excellent environment allowing the  
propagation of new ideas
to a large audience, leading to the publication of papers in several  

++++ SCOPE ++++

The range of domains that ECCS has dealt with, and continues to deal  
with, is diverse,
concerning a variety of Complex Systems research areas. The ECCS'10  
main conference is
organized in the following tracks:

* Track A: Policy, Planning & Infrastructure - Policymaking; Design  
Processes; Environmental
Decision Making; Management; Construction and Manufacturing; Energy  
and Sustainability;
Urban Planning; Built Environment; Internet; Transport & Power  
Networks; Medical & Health

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

* Track C: Interacting Populations and Environment - Climate Change;  
Geography; Pollution;
Demography; Ecology; Epidemiology.

* Track D: Complexity and Computer Science - Natural and Pervasive  
Computing; Global Computing
Infrastructure; Swarms and Robot Teams; Mobile and Fleet Computing;  
Graphs and Neural Networks;
  Language and Cognition; Collaborative Human Computer Networks.

* Track E: From Molecules to Living Systems - Self-assembly & Self- 
organisation; Biochemistry, Cell
Biology, Neuroscience; Systems Biology; Medicine & Physiology.

* Track F: Mathematics and Simulation - Mathematics; Theoretical  
Physics; Modelling; Theory of
Simulation (both numerical mathematics and agent based); Network Theory.


Accepted papers will be edited in a CD-Rom by the Complex Systems  
Society. The CD-Rom will
be provided to all attainers of the conference.

Also, selected papers will be proposed for publication in ECCS'10  
special issues on the following

* Advances in Complex System (topical issue to be defined)

* The European Physical Journal B (papers concerning statistical
