  • Conference Objectives
    Complex systems are pervasive in many fields of science and we encounter them everyday and everywhere in our life. Their examples include financial markets, highway transportation networks, telecommunication networks, human economies, social networks, immunological systems, ant colonies, ect. The key feature of a complex system is that it is composed of large number of interconnected and interacting entities exhibiting much richer dynamical properties on global scale than they could be inferred from the properties and behaviours of its individual entities. Complex systems are studied in many areas of natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and mathematical sciences. The integral part of these interdisciplinary studies forms discrete modeling. These models can be seen as the simplest laboratories to study phenomena exhibited by complex systems like self-organization processes, pattern formation, cooperation, adaptation, competition, attractors, or multi-scaling phenomena. The objective of this conference is to bring researchers working on discrete modeling of complex systems and to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and presentation of results of their research.

  • Call For Papers
    Researchers and scientists working in the area of discrete modeling of complex systems are invited to submit abstracts on their research to be presented at the conference. Of particular interest are approaches: cellular automata, lattice gas cellular automata, agent based simulation models, individually based simulation models, networks. Both theoretical and applied research is of interest. Accepted abstracts will be schedules as talks or posters.

  • Post Conference Proceedings
    All participants of the Conference a invited to submit a paper for publication in the in special issues of the Acta Physica Polonica B. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. We use EasyChair conference system to manage paper submission. In order to submit paper, you must login to EasyChair website.
