Description

THEME

The interdisciplinary studies on complex systems have gained extensive research interests. Significant impacts have been made by such studies on a wide range of different areas including physics, biology, economics and social sciences, etc. While changing the way we view the world, studies on complex systems are also penetrating their influences into various engineering applications. In the long term, the way we understand and cope with the world may all be revolutionized. This conference aims to provide a unique and convenient platform for people working on theory and applications of complex systems to exchange their ideas and their latest research results. We look forward to your participation in COMPLEX’2009 to make this conference a success.
