Third Annual French Complex Systems Summer School

Lyon and Paris, July 20-August 14, 2009

This new series of international summer schools set in France is co-organized by the two French Complex Systems Institutes, in Lyon and Paris, in coordination with the overarching National Network of Complex Systems (RNSC). It is divided into two periods:

The aim of the school is to provide in-depth reference courses to a multi-disciplinary audience of researchers and students. The level of lectures will range from introductory to advanced, as attendees are not expected to be familiar with all the fields covered. Lecture topics will address specific objects from various disciplines pertaining to complex systems (physics, biology, sociology, etc.), or interdisciplinary tools and methods (mathematical, computational), or both.
