Subject: Invitation and Announcement - Summer Solstice - 8th International
Conference on Complex Systems, June 20-22, 2016 in Aveiro, Portugal

Dear Colleague,

It’s with pleasure that I invite you to the 2016 Summer Solstice - 8th
International Conference on Discrete Models of Complex Systems, to be held
next June 20-22, in Aveiro, Portugal.

*Contributed talks and posters are invited in modeling, mathematical
foundations, applications in all areas related to Complex Systems and
Complex Networks.*

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from around the
world working on discrete modelling of complex systems and analysis of
their dynamics. The objective of this conference is to provide a forum for
exchange of ideas, presentation of results of current research and to
discuss potential future directions and developments in the field of
discrete modelling of complex systems and analysis of their dynamics from
methodological and phenomenological point of view. The conference will
cover both theoretical and applied research. It will focus on discrete
modelling methodologies and their applications to analysis across different
scales of dynamics of complex systems.
