Complexity science in the 21st century: Keeping purpose in a random world

Complexity science in the 21st century: Keeping purpose in a random world

This video was recorded at 4th European Phd Complexity School. The '''European PhD Complexity Schools''' were introduced by GIACS as one of the instruments to initiate, escort and expose to the wider community research projects done by complexity young scientists. Over the last years dozens of students received their PhD following such events. While the previous schools took place mainly at ISI Foundation, Turin Italy , the present one will take place on Sept 10-14 in conjunction with the '''5th European Conference on Complex Systems ECCS 2008 , Jerusalem (Sept 14-19) and a few other major events. The School will benefit form the speakers of those events and will serve as a tutorial and pedagogical introduction to the other events. In addition to the educational aspects, the contact with the world complexity leaders will deeply benefit the young researchers. While the complexity approach emphasizes synthesis over disciplinarity, some of the talks of the school will fit - following the ECCS themes - under the titles: Eco(logical)-inspired problems Eco(nomics)-inspired problems Socio-Economics inspired problems Global System Dynamics (Policy making, Climate change, HIV). Physical and Mathematical Methods Biology and Bioinformatics
