New CS-DC e-Laboratories in the Lucca kickoff e-meeting

The UNESCO UniTwin Complex Systems Digital Campus organizes a kickoff e-meeting as a Satellite Meeting at the ECCS'14 (European Conference on Complex Systems http://www.eccs14.eu/ ) in Lucca, on the 25th of September, 2014. This satellite meeting brings together members of the CS-DC, from all over the world, to review progress and assess challenges related to the coordination and sharing of research and educational resources, among more than hundred universities and institutions worldwide. The sessions combine physical and remote presentations to include members attending ECCS in Lucca and those unable to do so.

The e-meeting is open both to all institutional and individual CS-DC members. The remote access is open and free (see connection protocol below).

Roadmap for the Science of Complex Systems

In general terms, a “complex system” is any system comprised of a great number of heterogeneous entities, where local interactions among entities create multiple levels of collective structure and organization.
