Dear All,

The Young Researchers of the Complex Systems Society (yrCSS) <>  is glad to bring to you the 6th edition of the CCS Warm-up!

As the pre-conference event for Conference on Complex Systems<> 2019 (CCS2019), and profiting the opportunity offered by the presence of a wide variety of experts in different topics in Singapore, we are organising a school for PhD students and early-stage researchers to prepare for a big event as CS2019. The school offers young researchers the opportunity to learn new methods, present their works and meet fellow researchers from the world over. The school is a three-day informal event to be held the weekend before the CCS2019 conference on September 27-29 2019, with three courses from prominent senior researchers, flash presentations from the school participants and a day long social event. Everything is being organised to help the participants get the most out of the CCS2019 Conference in Singapore.

  Date: 27, 28, 29 September 2019

  Time: 9:30am to 5.00pm
Venue:  LHN-TR+04<>

               The Arc - Learning Hub North  (LHN)

               LHN-B2-04  (Basement 2)

               63 Nanyang Drive Singapore 636922

Deadline for early bird (50 euros) has been extended to 2 Sep 2019.

The Speakers


Federico Levi<> is a Senior Editor at Nature Physics. He re-joined the jurnal in 2017, having previously been a Senior Editor and Team Manager at Nature Communications. His studies began at the University of Milan, where he specialized in the dynamics of open quantum systems. He then obtained his PhD from the University of Freiburg where he studied entanglement theory and energy transfer in disordered systems, with a focus on identifying quantum effects in biological processes.


Carlos Gershenson<> is a tenured research professor at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. He has a broad variety of academic interests, including self-organising systems, complexity, artificial life, information, evolution, cognition, artificial societies, and philosophy. He is a tenured full-time research professor, leader of the Self-organising Systems Lab. Currently, He is on a sabbatical year as a visiting professor at SENSEable City Lab, MIT, and at MOBS Lab in Northeastern. Additionally, he is Editor-in-Chief of Complexity Digest and Complexity-at-Large Editor of Complexity.


Vittoria Colizza<> is a Director of Research at Inserm (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) & Sorbonne University, Faculté de Médecine, Paris, France. She leads the EPIcx lab working on the characterisation and modeling of the spread of emerging infectious diseases, by integrating methods of complex systems with statistical physics approaches, computational sciences, geographic information systems, and mathematical epidemiology. In 2017 she obtained the Erdõs-Rényi Award.


Stefan Thurner<> is a full professor for Science of Complex Systems at the Medical University of Vienna, where he chairs Section for Science of Complex Systems. He is external professor at the Santa Fe Institute, senior researcher at IIASA, and president of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. He started his career with contributions to theoretical particle physics and gradually shifted his research focus to the understanding of complex systems. He is interested in network theory, evolutionary systems, life sciences, economics and finance and lately in social sciences. He holds two patents.

Best regards,
