Call for papers

Workshop on Complex Collective Systems shall be held in conjunction with the 8-th International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics (September 13-16)

The Workshop shall be held in Wroclaw - Poland, September 14-15, 2009

Collective aspects of Complex Systems are attracting an increasing community of researchers working in different fields and dealing with theoretical aspects as well as practical applications. Especially, analyzing of local interactions and simple rules make it possible to modelling of complex collective systems.

High quality papers are invited into the workshop. Papers presented during the workshop will be included into the proceedings of PPAM Conference and will be published after the conference by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Papers are not to exceed 8 pages (LNCS style)

Authors should submit papers (as PDF files) by PPAM site (track: Workshop Complex Collective Systems) before May 1, 2009. extedned till May 4. In case of any problems please contact the Workshop organizers.
