***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** -- apologies for cross-posting -- We are happy to announce that submissions are now accepted for oral contributions to: Complex-Space2019 Analysis and Modelling of Spatial Complex Systems -- Satellite of the Conference on Complex Systems 2019 -- https://ccs2019.complex-space.net Thursday, 3rd October 2019 Nanyang Technological University -- Singapore Abstract submission deadline: 20th June 2019 Rationale ========= Spatial constraints play a fundamental role in a variety of complex dynamics, from human mobility to tumor growth, from neural coordination to urban development, from transportation to plant biology. However, the research work to integrate in a meaningful way available spatial information in the systematic analysis and modelling of a system has only just begun. This satellite aims at providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers working on the broad problem of spatial complexity, to consolidate researchers working on different spatially constrained systems. The main objectives of the workshop are to survey the latest research in spatial complexity in different fields, to reflect on the role of space in the development of a variety of complex systems and processes, to underpin the elementary mechanisms responsible for the emergence of spatial heterogeneity and large-scale correlations in spatially-embedded systems, to identify common elements of spatially constrained complex systems, to share solutions to the challenges posed by their analysis, and to overall expand this intriguing area of complexity science. Topics ====== A list of topics relevant to the Satellite includes: - Spatial complexity in cities, biology, ecology, transportation systems, neuroscience - Mobility, traffic, and communication in spatial systems - Spatial networks - Spatial heterogeneity - Centrality, hierarchy, and motifs in spatial systems - Representation of spatial data - Spatial growth - Models of spatial systems - Computational geometry applied to spatial data - Long-range interactions and correlations in spatial systems Contributions ============= The Satellite will host a couple of invited talks by eminent scientists in the field, and welcomes oral contributions from researchers interested in theory and applications of complex spatial analysis. Submissions for oral contributions consist of one-page abstracts (preferably in PDF format) that provide a description of the contribution and include at most one captioned figure. Abstracts should be sent via email to: [log in to unmask] by 20th June 2019. Important Dates =============== Abstract submission deadline: 20th Jun 2019 Acceptance notification: 10th Jul 2019 Satellite: 3rd Oct 2019 Organisers ========== - Vincenzo Nicosia, Queen Mary University of London - Mark Barthelemy, CEA Saclay - George Bassel, University of Warwick - Weini Huang, Queen Mary University of London -- [ Enzo Nicosia - School of Mathematical Sciences - Queen Mary UL ] [ -- v.nicosia [at] qmul.ac.uk -- katolaz [at] yahoo [dot] it -- ] [ -- web @QMUL: http://maths.qmul.ac.uk/~vnicosia/index.html -- ] [ twitter:@KatolaZ -- jabber:[log in to unmask] - skype: katolaz ] _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
