Meeting: Evolution, Development & Complexity

A full day satellite meeting will be held on 20th September 2017 at the Conference on Complex Systems held in Cancun, Mexico between 18th – 22nd September, 2017.

The meeting seeks to advance conceptual and mathematical models and empirical applications in three major and potentially foundational research themes:

  • A. Evolution / Diversity / Phase Space Creation / Unpredictability
  • B. Development / Constraint / Phase Space Reduction / Predictability
  • C. Complexity / Nonlinear Dynamics / Intelligence / Learning / Adaptation
The meeting aims to evaluate biologically-inspired approaches to understanding complex adaptive systems at multiple scales, including the universe as a complex system, in the following academic disciplines: complexity science, physical science, information and computer science, theoretical and evo-devo biology, cosmology, astrobiology, evolution, development, and philosophy.
