In recent years, scientists from mathematical disciplines have increasingly made investigations into the modeling of a wide array of systems outside the remit of the physical sciences leading to new, quantitative understanding of economics, the social sciences and humanities. Exciting developments in complex network theory, in particular, have led to applications in various fields, including, transport, epidemiology, literature as well as the behaviour of online communities. “Microscopic”, or agent-based approaches allow for an understanding of the emergence of complex phenomena from simple behavioural rules in such systems. Such emergence is almost always an effect of non-equilibrium phenomena, be it the traffic flow in complex transport networks, the historical development of epic literature, or the evolution of languages and dialects, for example. It is now important to steer these activities to optimise outcomes and, in particular, involve researchers from the humanities and social sciences more directly in these efforts.
The workshop will consist of a number of invited lectures as well as a small number of contributed presentations as well as a poster session. The purpose of the meeting is for scholars from different disciplines, in particular from the Arts and Humanities and the Sciences, to meet and gauge the potential for collaborative work in the field of the workshop. To achieve this, and contribute to a roadmap on research in emergent phenomena and non-equilibrium to be submitted to the EPSRC, we will allow for ample (moderated as well as informal) discussion time.
Confirmed invited speakers are
* Richard Blythe (University of Edinburgh)
* Howard Hotson (University of Oxford)
* János Kertész (Budapest University of Technology and Economics)
* Judith Mottram (Royal College of Arts)
* Gene Stanley (Boston University)
If you would like to participate, please complete the application form found on the website. There will be a small number of slots for contributed presentations as well as a poster session. If you are a member of the EPSRC NetworkPlus on “Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium”, your participation costs will be covered by the network grant.
There is no registration fee.
The deadline for registrations is June 30, 2015.
The meeting will be held in the facilities of Coventry University’s London Campus in the heart of London.
