ECCS'14: Satellite Meeting Information Processing in Complex Systems (IPCS'14)

All systems in nature have one thing in common: they process information. Information is registered in the state of a system and its elements, implicitly and invisibly. As elements interact, information is transferred. Indeed, bits of information about the state of one element will travel – imperfectly – to the state of the other element, forming its new state. This storage and transfer of information, possibly between levels of a multi level system, is imperfect due to randomness or noise. From this viewpoint, a system can be formalized as a collection of bits that is organized according to its rules of dynamics and its topology of interactions. Mapping out exactly how these bits of information percolate through the system could reveal new fundamental insights in how the parts orchestrate to produce the properties of the system. A theory of information processing would be capable of defining a set of universal properties of dynamical multi level complex systems, which describe and compare the dynamics of diverse complex systems ranging from social interaction to brain networks, from financial markets to biomedicine. Each possible combination of rules of dynamics and topology of interactions, with disparate semantics, would reduce to a single language of information processing.

 

Satellite meeting: September 24, 2014 at ECCS'14, Lucca, Italy.

Australasian Conference on Artificial Life and Computational Intelligence (ACALCI 2015)

Artificial life (AL) refers to models and simulations of living systems, as they appear in nature as well as to possible alternative life forms and concepts that may not have occurred in natural evolution. Computational Intelligence (CI) developed from the traditional fields of artificial intelligence into various areas of nature inspired computing and optimisation. It is often referred to as an umbrella for the areas of evolutionary computation, artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems and other learning systems. While AL attempts to understand nature through modelling and simulation, CI attempts to translate this understanding into algorithms for learning and optimisation.

ACALCI features international research in AL and CI and aims at becoming an exciting forum for innovative, emerging, cross-disciplinary and sometimes exotic ideas associated with the computational and algorithmic concepts underlying living and intelligent systems. The focus is on software-based and agent-based forms of artificial life but may also include computational aspects of synthetic life. Artificial life concepts can occur on sub-cellular, cellular, cell assembly/network, organism, or society levels.

NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Information and Entropy

NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Information and Entropy | CxConferences | Scoop.it

Information theory and entropy methods are becoming powerful tools in biology, from the level of individual cells, to whole ecosystems, to experimental design, model-building, and the measurement of biodiversity. The aim of this investigative workshop is to synthesize different ways of applying these concepts to help systematize and unify work in biological systems. Early attempts at "grand syntheses" often misfired, but applications of information theory and entropy to specific highly focused topics in biology have been increasingly successful. In ecology, entropy maximization methods have proven successful in predicting the distribution and abundance of species. Entropy is also widely used as a measure of biodiversity. Work on the role of information in game theory has shed new light on evolution. As a population evolves, it can be seen as gaining information about its environment. The principle of maximum entropy production has emerged as a fascinating yet controversial approach to predicting the behavior of biological systems, from individual organisms to whole ecosystems. This investigative workshop will bring together top researchers from these diverse fields to share insights and methods and address some long-standing conceptual problems.


NIMBioS Investigative Workshop Information and Entropy
Topic: Information and entropy in biological systems
Meeting dates: April 8-10, 2015
Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Organizers:
• John Baez, Mathematics, Univ. of California, Riverside
• Marc Harper, Educational and biotechnology consultant

ECCS WARM-UP: II School on Complex Networks, Sept 19-21, 2014, Lucca

Following last years successful edition, we have once more decided to organize a summer school coinciding with the European Conference on Complex Systems  thus profiting the opportunity offered by the presence of a wide variety of experts in different topics in Lucca. The projected school aims to offer young researchers the opportunity to learn new methods, present their work and meet fellow researchers, and it also represents a good opportunity for young researcher to prepare their participation to the main ECCS conference in an informal and relaxed environment.
Following our policy to display local talent, three renowned italian researchers will each present a different aspect of complex networks in three hour sessions. Names such as Dr. Roberta Sinatra, Dr. Ciro Catutto and Prof. Stefano Battiston should sound familiar to any interested student. Furthermore, we plan a meeting where each participant will have the possibility to share with the others his work, organized as a flash presentation workshop. Of course, a major social event is also included, to stimulate networking and “prepare” the official ECCS conference.

Massive Data Flow: Understanding the Complex Dynamics of the Web

The Web is perhaps the most complex system that we know. Its massive scale, complex dynamism, open richness, and social character mean that it may be more profitable to study it using tools and concepts appropriate for understanding nervous systems, organisms, ecosystems and society, rather than approaches more traditionally employed to engineer technology. Simultaneously, the scientists trying to understand this wide array of complex natural systems may have much to gain by considering the emergingstudy of the Web.

Seventh International Workshop on Guided Self-Organization

The workshop will bring together researchers from a richly diverse background who share interest in understanding and designing self-organising systems. Of particular interest are well-founded, but general methods for characterizing such systems in a principled way with the view of ultimately allowing them to be guided toward prespecified goals. Information theory, nonlinear dynamics and graph theory are core to many of these methods, and quantifying complexity and its sources is a common theme.

This year, the workshop is organised in collaboration with the BrainLinks-BrainTools cluster of excellence at University of Freiburg ( https://www.brainlinks-braintools.uni-freiburg.de/ ), and one focus theme will be guided self-organisation in neural systems.


Seventh International Workshop on Guided Self-Organisation (GSO-2014) to be held from December 16-18, 2014 in Freiburg, Germany.
