         Analysis and Modelling of Spatial Complex Systems
     -- Satellite of the Conference on Complex Systems 2019 --
                   Thursday, 3rd October 2019 
           Nanyang Technological University -- Singapore 
            Abstract submission deadline: 20th June 2019


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.


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


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

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:
