The UK’s largest conference for early-career researchers in complexity science is graduating to mainland Europe. The Student Conference on Complexity Science (SCCS) has a focus on computational modelling, simulation and network analysis that extends over the full range of disciplines. The interdisciplinary nature of the conference is attested by its diversity of keynote speakers, delegates, and practical, hands-on workshops.
Since 2010, the SCCS conference series has brought together PhD students and early-career researchers from the UK and beyond, whose interests span areas as diverse as quantum physics, ecological food webs, and the the economics of happiness. This year SCCS will take place for three days in Granada, Spain to engage more international participation.
SCCS 2015 will be held between 9-11 September 2015 in Granada Congress and Exhibition Centre, Spain.
Aim and scope: This summer school will provide opportunities to collect experience with modern data analysis, in particular Big Data analytics. This includes subjects such as how to mine data in the Internet and data of Social Media. Moreover, participants will be able to work with us on the Planetary Nervous System. The Planetary Nervous System is a large-scale distributed research platform that will provide real-time social mining services as a public good. Existing Big Data systems threaten social cohesion as they are designed to be closed, proprietary, privacy-intrusive and discriminatory. In contrast, the Planetary Nervous System is an open, privacy-preserving and participatory platform designed to be collectively built by citizens and for citizens. The Planetary Nervous System is enabled by Internet of Things technologies and aims at seamlessly interconnecting a large number of different pervasive devices, e.g. mobile phones, smart sensors, etc. For this purpose, several universal state-of-the-art protocols and communication means are introduced. A novel social mining paradigm shift is enabled: Users are provided with freedom and incentives to share, collect and, at the same time, protect data of their digital environment in real-time. In this way, social mining turns into a knowledge extraction service for public good. The social mining services of the Planetary Nervous System can be publicly used to build novel innovative applications. Whether you would like to detect an earthquake, perform a secure evacuation or discover the hot spots of a highly frequented city, the Planetary Nervous system makes this possible by collectively mining social activities of participatory citizens.

Call for papers The Global Brain and the Future Information Society
The Global Brain can be defined as the self-organizing network formed by all people on this planet together with the information and communication technologies that connect and support them. As the Internet becomes faster, smarter, and more encompassing, it increasingly links its users into a single information processing system, which functions like a nervous system for the planet Earth. The intelligence of this system is collective and distributed: it is not localized in any particular individual, organization or computer system. It rather emerges from the interactions between all its components—a property characteristic of a complex adaptive system. Such a distributed intelligence may be able to tackle current and emerging global problems that have eluded more traditional approaches. Yet, at the same time it will create technological and social challenges that are still difficult to imagine, transforming our society in all aspects.
Computational Dynamic Analysis of Biological Processes is one of the most challenging research areas in modern life science. Topics such as Disease Dynamics, Drug Resistance, Immune System Analysis, Emerging Mutations, Microbiome Analysis, and Biological Networks Evolution involve intriguing and still unsolved problems. On the other hand, the availability of Next Generation Sequencing and other High-throughput techniques provide a strong support for scientists working in this field. Our main and special guest lectures will address the scope focusing on algorithms, computational models, biomedical and biotechnological results on this field. From the enclosed bibliography, it appears that the selected themes have received much attention in the scholarly literature ranging from Nature and Science to Bioinformatics Journals.

The first world e-conference organized by the UNESCO CSDC and UniTwin. For all scientists involved in the transdisciplinary challenges of complex systems, theoretical questions, experimental observations of multi-level dynamics.
CS-DC’15 will take place within the Conference on Complex Systems (CCS’15), from Sept 28 to Oct 2, 2015, the first instance of a new series following the European Conferences on Complex Systems (ECCS) held between 2004 and 2014.
CS-DC’15 is also a new kind of conference with no conference fees, neither for speakers nor attendees, and happening for the most part online. Any connected scientist in the world can present a paper (accepted after submission) and ask questions. All selected presentations are given via open videoconference tools in front of a worldwide audience. They are recorded and can be replayed later on for research and education purposes without time limit.
CS-DC’15 is exemplary of the new “social intelligence” strategies for sharing education and research resources, in particular ones that deal with the transdisciplinary challenges of complex systems. This objective is the main commitment of CS-DC in the Cooperation Program signed with UNESCO.
Recent availability of large volumes of ecological and biological data spanning a wide range of scales, made it evident that, despite their diversity, living systems are characterized by patterns/regularities repeated from microscopic to global scales. This workshop aims to explore how these recurrent phenomena emerge as the result of concerted interactions among their constituent elements (e.g. species, or genes), using a combination of approaches inspired by statistical mechanics, network analysis and the theory of complex systems. The aim of the workshop is to introduce students and young researchers with strong background in quantitative sciences to methods and ideas used to describe such complex systems. The range of topics covered at the workshop is very broad, ranging from genomics to ecology, with the ultimate goal of identifying similarities and differences of complex biological systems operating at different scales.
Fee* 150 euro. (*) We will grants 3 fee waivers to support the attendance of PhD students and Junior Post Doctoral researchers (no more than two years from their PhD completion). Prospective participants who are eligible should accompany send an email to the Organizing Committee (LIPh.firstname.lastname@example.org) requiring the fee waiver, providing the CV and a motivation letter. The acceptance will be notified together with the admission to the school.
Synthetic Biology’s vision to repurpose living cells as substrates for general computation has manifested itself in genetic circuit designs that attempt to implement Boolean logic gates, digital memory, oscillators, and other circuits from electrical engineering. Yet, the various achievements in the realm of Synthetic Biology remain isolated and generally lack the modularity and scalability of their electronic counterparts.
This ECAL 2015 satellite workshop revisits cornerstone achievements in Synthetic Biology research that address general computability in biological substrates, in order to demarcate key in-vivo and in-silico challenges of this novel research area. Topics will deal with how paradigms borrowed from digital, electronic devices are best implemented in large-scale biological substrates, and whether unconventional computing paradigms, such as those developed in the research field of Artificial Life, might offer more promising routes toward full-fledged biological computation.
