Fourth French Regional Conference on Complex Systems

May 29 – 31, 2024

Montpellier, France

FRCCS 2024

Deadline: February 21, 2023



After successfully hosting the conference in Dijon in 2021, Paris in 2022, and Le Havre in 2023, the fourth edition of the French Regional Conference on Complex Systems (FRCCS 2024) will be held in Montpellier, France. This single-track international conference organized by CSS France serves as a platform to foster interdisciplinary exchanges among researchers from various scientific disciplines and diverse backgrounds, including sociology, economics, history, management, archaeology, geography, linguistics, statistics, mathematics, and computer science.

FRCCS 2024 provides a valuable opportunity for participants to meet in France, exchange and promote ideas, and facilitate the cross-fertilization of recent research work, industrial advancements, and original applications. Moreover, the conference emphasizes research topics with a high societal impact, showcasing the significance of complexity science in addressing complex societal challenges. Join us in Montpellier as we collectively strive to understand complexity and its implications for society better.


You are cordially invited to submit your contribution until February 21, 2024.


Finalized work (published or unpublished) and work in progress are welcome. Two types of contributions are accepted:

·       Papers about original research (up to 12 pages)

·       Extended Abstract about published or unpublished research (3 to 4 pages).
