This Sunday 15 is the official start of the ECCS13 that takes place in Barcelona. Of course, the Complex System Lab will take part in this conference thanks to many of its members and several friends. This is will be our activities during the following days:
On Monday 16, Carlos Rodríguez-Caso will open the CSL activities giving a talk titled Are Complex Networks Really Hierarchical? The Actual And The Possible Of Network Organisation about his very recent PNAS article that we covered in a recent post. The article is coauthored by Bernat Corominas and Joaquín Goñi who will also be attending the conference, and by Ricard Solé.
On the same day, Luís F. Seoane will be presenting his poster titled Analytic Solution of a Model of Language Competition with Bilingualism and Interlinguistic Similarity. The poster features a recent paper just accepted in Physica D and coauthored by Seoane and colleages from the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) María Victoria Otero-Espinar, Juan Jose Nieto, and Jorge Mira.
On Wednesday 18 it is time for Sergi Valverde that will be talking in the satellite conference Quantifying Success. He will be giving a talk titled Evolution of Patent Citation Networks about ongoing work and in close relation with previous papers of his like this one coauthored with the CSL leader Ricard Solé, and with Mark A. Bedau, and Norman Packard. Sergi also provides us with a nice review on the ecology of technological innovations, a collaboration with Ricard Sole, Marti Rosas-Casals, Stuart Kauffman, Doyne Farmer and Niles Eldredge.
About satellite events, on Thursday 19 it is Luís F. Seoane’s turn again, now to present his poster Images from the Mind: a BCI Application Based on RSVP of Polygon Primitives, a work coauthored by S. Gabler and B. Blankertz from the Technische Universität Berlin. The presentation is framed within the Young Research Network in Complex Systems.
And the same author (Seoane) closes the CSL participation on this edition of the ECCS on Friday 20, with his talk Predicting The Evolution Of Heterogeneous Language Contact Situations: The Case Of Galician-Spanish Bilingualism, a work coauthored with Jorge Mira, María do Carme Parafita, Håkan Casares, and Henrique Monteagudo.
We hope to see you around, that you enjoy our contributions, and that you participate and help construct the critic ideal of science during the following week, that promises to be thrilling! Are you yourself participating in the ECCS? What are your contributions? We would not like to miss it!
