Fourth International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS 2002): Abstract Deadline Friday, February 15th!
DEADLINE: ICCS ABSTRACT SUBMISSION THIS FRIDAY FEB 15th submit at http://necsi.org/events/iccs/iccs4register.html or send by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
FINANCIAL AID: We expect to have funds to assist students, postdocs, junior faculty and others who do not have sufficient financial resources to attend the conference. Please submit applications to attend and indicate your need for financial aid to be considered.
Below is the preliminary program for the fourth International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS 2002) which will take place June 9-14, 2002 in Nashua, NH, near Boston, MA.
This ICCS, like the previous ones, is an unusual opportunity to form collaborations and discuss advances in complex systems research. It is also a remarkable opportunity for pedagogy. Proceedings will be published in print and on-line.
There is still an opportunity to submit abstracts. Please submit them soon so we can organize them for the program committee meeting.
Registering to attend the conference without giving a presentation is also still possible.
Students and postdocs are encouraged to submit papers about recent advances in their research. Opportunities will be provided for them to give short talks or to be assigned to the poster session.
Additional information about NECSI and the ICCS conferences may be found at http://necsi.org
Please send inquiries to email@example.com
Preliminary Conference Program (* indicates confirmed) Additional speakers are still to be assigned to sessions. Abstracts can still be submitted.
