>Subject: ICCS Preliminary program
>From: Yaneer Bar-Yam <yaneer@necsi.org>





>Attached is a preliminary program for the third 
>International Conference on Complex Systems. Many 
>of the plenary speakers and special sessions are 
>included. 
>
>The main meeting of the program committee which
>will assign additional speakers to sessions has been
>delayed until Feb. 18. 
>
>There is still a window of opportunity to submit
>abstracts. Please submit them soon so we can
>organize them for the program committee meeting.
>Please send them to iccs@necsi.org
>
>Registering to attend the conference without giving
>a presentation is also still possible.
>
>As you can see from the preliminary program, this 
>ICCS, like the previous ones, is an unusual opportunity 
>to discuss advances that contribute to our understanding 
>of complex systems generally. It is also a remarkable 
>opportunity for pedagogy. 
>
>Students and postdocs should submit papers about 
>recent advances in their research. Generally, they 
>will be given opportunities to give short talks or, if 
>they prefer, will be assigned to the poster session. 
>We expect to have funds to assist students and 
>postdocs in attending the conference.

>Best,
