NERCCS 2024:
Seventh Northeast Regional Conference on Complex Systems

Sponsored by the Complex Systems Society US Northeast Chapter and the Clarkson Center for Complex Systems Science (C3S2)

NERCCS 2024: The Seventh Northeast Regional Conference on Complex Systems will follow the success of the previous NERCCS conferences to promote the emerging venue of interdisciplinary scholarly exchange for complex systems researchers in the Northeast U.S. region (and beyond) to share their research outcomes through presentations and online publications, network with their peers, and promote interdisciplinary collaboration and the growth of the research community.

NERCCS will particularly focus on facilitating the professional growth of early career faculty, postdocs, and students in the region who will likely play a leading role in the field of complex systems science and engineering in the coming years.

The 2024 conference will be held as an in person conference at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY.



We call for submissions for oral and poster presentations on a wide variety of complex systems research. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

Theoretical foundations of complex systems
Nonlinear dynamics and chaos
Systems theory, information theory, and systems science
Game theory, decision theory, and socio-economical applications

Self-organization, pattern formation, and collective behavior
Structure and dynamics of complex networks
Sustainability and adaptability of complex systems
Bio-inspired systems, machine learning, and evolutionary computation

Data-driven approaches to complex systems
Applications to the humanities, art, and literature
Historical and philosophical aspects of complex systems
Complex systems and education

Submissions should be made as a single PDF file via google form, in either extended abstract format (1 page, including one figure) or full paper format (15 pages max.).

Full paper submission has an earlier deadline to allow for rigorous full-paper peer reviews, and if accepted, the papers will be published in Northeast Journal of Complex Systems (NEJCS) after the peer review process has been completed (free of charge). Review for a poster/talk designation will be handled separately. Interested authors can contact the Publication Chairs .
