Guided Self-Organisation 2020 Edinburgh, 8 – 10 June, 2020

Guided Self-Organisation 2020 Edinburgh, 8 – 10 June, 2020 | CxConferences | Scoop.it

In general, Guided Self-Organisation attempts to reconcile two seemingly opposing forces: one is guiding a self-organising system into a better structured shape and/or functionality, while the other is diversifying the options in an entropic exploration within the available search space. At first glance, these two alternatives may even appear irreconcilable in principle, given an apparent contradiction between the concepts of guidance (implying control) and self-organisation (implying autonomy). However, the resolution of this paradox capitalises on the distinction between the concepts of “control” and “constraint”: rather than trying to precisely control a transition towards the desirable outcomes, one puts in place some constraints on the system dynamics to mediate behaviors and interactions.

Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications – Lake Como School of Advanced Studies – May 18-21, 2020

Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications – Lake Como School of Advanced Studies – May 18-21, 2020 | CxConferences | Scoop.it

Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline---including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others---and the study of "network science" has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.

The school "Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications" offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.

Machine Learning and Modeling at CSS'2019

The science of complex systems provides the framework for understanding patterns of behavior, and their emergence, at multiple scales in social and other types of systems. The analytical toolsets provided by AI and Machine Learning are good to recognize and measure such patterns in the data. The combination of pattern recognition and generation mechanisms provides an opportunity to advance our understanding of the complexity of real systems. Ultimately, we could benefit from such complexity, rather than being endangered by it, design better technologies, decisions and strategies.

  • Show new ways to model complex and social systems by means of big data analysis, machine learning and AI.
  • Explore new ways to analyze the data, taking into account the complexity of underlying systems.
  • We would like to address how to formulate the right questions and retrieve the relevant information.

The opportunities available from big data and machine learning could solve challenging problems but we must analyze and interpret the data properly. Wrong assumptions and simplified views could separate modeling from reality. We expect to raise awareness about interventions in complex systems, the risk we face when societies become global, the opportunities that are created, and the role of complexity in data analytics.

Networked Complexity: The Case of COVID-19. June 8-11, 2020

Networked Complexity: The Case of COVID-19. June 8-11, 2020 | CxConferences | Scoop.it
Close monitoring of the COVID-19 pandemic provides a blow by blow account of a spatio-temporal process percolating over complex (social)-networks. Efforts to contain the spread of the disease were and remain, for better or worse, explicitly informed by a rich tradition of mathematical models of such processes. This tradition was further enriched in the past couple of decades with the emergence of globally networked virtual societies, and the deployment of fine grained networks of sensors, both enabling the gathering of highly resolved data on the structure of complex networks, and flows over them.


Our online-conference is an occasion for expert reviews of this tradition, then presentations of work-in-progress on the gathering of epidemiological data (technical and ethical challenges), and its modeling (from the coarse grained compartmental, to the fine grained agent based models), with the urgency of COVID-19 mitigation in the air.

Taking place as it does at a cusp in a global pandemic, the meeting is for us at CAMS a timely intervention in a collaboration with the National Center for Remote Sensing (NCRS, CNRS-L) the principle aim of which is to harness big data analytics and complexity theory at the service of national and regional priorities. It draws on local expertise in concerned disciplines (in this case: physics, biology, epidemiology and sociology), and contributions by experts at leading international laboratories in data analytics, and complexity science (e.g. Multiscale and Quantum Physics, Aalto University, Finland; The Bartlett Center for Advanced Spatial Analysis, UCL, London; Center of Complexity Sciences (C3), UNAM, Mexico; The Alan Turing Institute, London; ICTP, Trieste, Italy; etc.).

Tenth International Conference on Complex Systems — ICCS 2020 will be an online event. | CxConferences | Scoop.it

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Executive Committee has made the decision to move ICCS 2020 to an online-only event.

While the outlook for the unprecedented challenges we are facing from COVID-19 remain uncertain, our values are clearer than ever. The health and safety of our communities—academic, local, and business—are of the utmost priority. Further, we know as complex systems scientists that we must play our part by endeavoring to fragment our physical contact networks, yet strengthen our virtual social networks. We also remain committed to the pursuit of creating and sharing knowledge, and wish to honor our promise to provide a rich forum in which to do this. It is with these tenets in mind that we made the decision to make ICCS 2020 a 100% online-only event.

What you need to know:

  • The dates remain the same: July 26th - July 31st 2020

  • Registration has reopened, but If you have already registered for the live event, we will soon be contacting you directly with more details and information on refunds

  • We encourage you to continue submitting abstracts or papers on EasyChair...

  • ...especially if your work relates to COVID-19.

We are excited to rise to the occasion of conducting a large conference virtually and look forward to “seeing” you all in July! If you have any questions, we encourage you to get in touch: programs@necsi.edu

On the Synthtesis of Affectivity Embodiment & AI

ALife2020

13-18 July 2020, Montreal, Canada 

 

Affective computing works mostly under a vision of emotions based on a functionalist conception of the mind in which emotions, as any other mental state, are understood as functional relations of information processing. The way in which these functional relations are achieved, whether through neuronal activity and organization or by artificial computer programming, is irrelevant to what emotions essentially are. These ideas are in stark contrast to the positions of embodied cognitive science, especially those emerging from the 4E approach to cognition (Embodied, Ecological, Embedded, Enactive), to which, in general, affectivity is seen as constitutive to cognition and cognition is always embodied.

In this workshop we discuss how relevant is embodiment for the synthesis of affectivity based in AI or other forms of implementation. The workshop is open to the widest possible disciplinary audience to tackle both the theoretical and philosophical aspects of synthetic affectivity, and how this is relevant for real-world implementations. We believe that this discussion is not only relevant in terms of advancing technology –which is exciting all by itself–, but it is a great opportunity to put the embodiment of emotions and affectivity in sharper relief by considering if and how this affective life can be shared with synthetic systems or even artificially implemented. We thus propose a dialogue in which the AI concern with artificial affectivity and the embodied methodologies of ALife can meet.

In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of the Sixth Edition in 2019 of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the Seventh Edition in 2020.
