DPG Spring Meeting (Physics of Socio-Economic Systems Division)

The mathematical and computer simulation of social and economic systems is receiving more and more attention. The dedicated scientific community is rapidly growing and involves, besides sociologist and economists, also physicists, mathematicians, computers scientists, biologists, engineers, and the communities working on complex systems and operations research. To keep an overview, it is important to be well connected, and to benefit from shared information platforms.

 

Confirmed invited speakers include:
Ian Couzin (Princeton, USA) "Distributed sensing and decision-making in animal and human collectives"
Vittorio Loreto (Rome, Italy) "Seeds for new perspectives: a simple model of innovation dynamics"
Kim Sneppen (Copenhagen, Denmark) "Modeling co-existence of competing opinions"
Geoffrey West (Santa Fe, USA) "Can There Be a Quantitative Science of Cities, Companies and Sustainability? What Can we Learn from Biology and Physics?"
Alan Kirman (Marseille, France) "Mind the gap: What economics, social insects and statistical physics can learn from each other"
and as a special highlight: Plenary talk (Monday, noon): Sidney Redner (Boston, USA) "The dynamics of wealth, popularity and persuasion"

 

Regensburg, 10 - 15 March 2013

Conceptual and Mathematical Foundations of Embodied Intelligence

Conceptual and Mathematical Foundations of Embodied Intelligence

Leipzig, February 27 - March 01, 2013
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

http://www.mis.mpg.de/calendar/conferences/2013/ei.html

 

In the last few decades, an overwhelming number of case studies produced the evidence that intelligent behavior of naturally evolved agents efficiently involves the embodiment as part of the underlying control process. Nowadays, there is no question that the exploration and exploitation of the embodiment represent important mechanisms of cognition. The shift from the classical view to the modern embodied view, also referred to as the cognitive turn, not only framed a novel way of thinking about intelligence but also identified a number of fundamental principles that intelligent systems obey. Well known examples are the principle of cheap design, morphological computation, and information self-structuring. Although there is general consensus on the intuitive meaning of such principles, the field of embodied intelligence currently lacks a formal theory. We think that the mathematical foundations of the core concepts have to be advanced and unified, in order to be able to realize and better understand cognitive systems that exploit their embodiment in an autonomous and completely intrinsic way. Information theory, dynamical systems theory, and information geometry already turned out to be useful in this regard. However, there is much more, and also much more to do.

Summarizing, the goal of the workshop is to identify the core concepts and to advance the theoretical foundations of embodied intelligence.

The 11th International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS 2013)

The 11th International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS 2013) | CxConferences | Scoop.it

June 15, 2012: Workshop and panel proposals due.

July 31, 2012: Acceptance notification for workshop proposals.

September 24, 2012: Final papers due. NEW EXTENDED DATE!

November 15, 2012: Acceptance notification for paper authors and panel organizers.

December 31, 2012: Camera-ready copies of accepted papers and panelist position papers due.

 

Opportunities and challenges for implementing highly complex, efficient, and dependable business and control systems have been steadily increasing, driven by the continuous growth in the power, intelligence, adaptiveness and openness of technologies and standards applied in computing, communication and control systems. Dynamically changing social and economic situations demand the next-generation of systems to be based on adaptive, reusable, and internet and Web-enabled technologies and applications. Such systems are expected to have the characteristics of living systems composed of largely autonomous and decentralized components. Such systems are called Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ADS). The International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized System (ISADS) has been the premier events in the past twenty-two years to have successfully addressed these challenges. The 11th ISADS 2013 will continue to focus on the advancements and innovations in ADS concepts, technologies, applications strategic issues, and other related topics. The special topic for ISADS 2013 is the smart cities and e-applications.

l

TARGET AUDIENCE

The NECSI Winter School is intended for faculty, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, professionals and others who would like to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of complex systems for application to research in their respective fields, or as a basis for pursuing complex systems research.

The winter school offers two intensive week-long courses. The courses consist of lectures, discussions, and supervised group projects. Though the second week builds on material covered in the previous week, CX201 is not a prerequisite for CX202. You may register for either or both weeks. If desired, arrangements for credit at a home institution may be made in advance.

4th Workshop on Complex Networks

4th Workshop on Complex Networks | CxConferences | Scoop.it

This international workshop on complex networks (CompleNet) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to complex networks. In the past two decades we have been witnessing an exponential increase on the number of publications in this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims at addressing.

 

Workshops are scheduled around the world on an yearly basis. The first edition of the workshop took place in May 2009 in Catania, Italy; the 2nd took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; the 3rd in Melbourne, Florida, USA. This year we will be Berlin at the campus of the Freie Universitaet Berlin
