Call for organizing satellite meetings

ECCS’13 will be a major international conference and event in the area of complex systems and interdisciplinary science in general. It will offer unique opportunities to study novel scientific approaches in a multitude of application areas. Two days of the conference, 18 and 19 September, are reserved for satellite meetings, which will cover a broad range of subjects on all aspects of Complex Systems, as reflected by the conference tracks (appended below).

Applications to organize a satellite meeting can now be submitted via email. Please visit for further information.
