**********************************************************************
                PhD 'Researh in Progress' Workshop (III)

         from LAB to SOCIETY - Opportunities in Complexity

            A Thematic Satellite Meeting  to be held at
         European Conference on Complex Systems (ECCS'11)
                    September 12-16, Vienna, Austria
                  http://cssociety.org/PhDVienna2011
**********************************************************************
                  SUBMISSION DEADLINE: May 15, 2011


AIM AND SCOPE
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The premise of the satellite meeting is to give MSc and PhD students
studying within the domain of complex systems science a platform to
present their research question, approach and results at an early
point in their research career to an interdisciplinary and supportive
group.

This year’s topic: from LAB to SOCIETY, is meant to challenge the
future young researchers to try elucidating how their own research
will affect society as a whole within 5-10 years and how their complex
systems approach may help structure our society for the better.

A networking platform is available through the CSS website at
http://cssociety.org/YoCo.

INVITED SPEAKER
------------------------------------------------------------------------
David Hales is a researcher at the Open University in the United
Kingdom. His research is at the overlap between computer science and
social science. He has a background is Computer Science and Artificial
Intelligence but he has spent a lot of time with Sociologists,
Philosophers and even lapsed Economists doing simulations.  He
develops approaches for growing reliable, decentralized systems -
specifically peer-to-peer systems. The aim is to produce
self-configuring, self-repairing and self-organising societies of peer
nodes that execute on user machines. He wants to harness desirable
emergent properties of massive (millions of nodes) systems under
conditions of high flux with nodes constantly entering and leaving the
system, and possibly behaving maliciously. In these kinds of ”anarchic
environments” system behaviour needs to emerge ”bottom-up” from the
behaviour of individuals following their own rules. Imposition of
central control is not an option and we can’t rely solely on the
”hidden hands” of classical economic theory. So a synthesis is
required between new kinds of social theory applicable to the
artificial domain and distributed self-organising systems
programming. Such a synthesis could transform, not just technology
but, human societies in profound ways. He aims to encourage
transformations that are for the good of everyone - not just a
technologically or financially privileged few.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------
30 minute oral presentations are expected from prospective
participants. Authors of contributed talks are invited to submit one
page (maximum 300 words) abstract, accompanied by title, authors,
contact information, a relevant link to a complex systems website and
a relevant picture.

The abstracts should be emailed, preferably in plain text format, to

evaluated by selected referees based on consistency with the target
audience, theme of satellite meeting and originality. If accepted, one
of the authors is expected to present their contribution at the
satellite.
