About this book

The International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS) creates a unique atmosphere for scientists of all fields, engineers, physicians, executives, and a host of other professionals to explore the common themes and applications of complex systems science. In June 2006, 500 participants convened in Boston for the sixth ICCS, exploring an array of topics, including networks, systems biology, evolution and ecology, nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation, as well as neural, psychological, psycho-social, socio-economic, and global systems.  

This volume selects 77 papers from over 300 presented at the conference. With this new volume, Unifying Themes in Complex Systems continues to build common ground between the wide-ranging domains of complex systems science.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a useful volume. … Each of the chapters is a summary of one of the presentations given from June 25 through June 30, 2006 at the Sixth International Conference on Complex Systems … . The chapters are short (six to eight pages) and highly condensed … . this volume offers such a wide range of concepts, methods, and applications, anyone involved in the sciences of complexity will find many of these chapters stimulating.” (John Bragin, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, February, 2011)
