Joint SE-Complex Systems Conference (2007)

In the summer of 2007 there will be the first joint conference between the fields of Systems Engineering and the sciences of Complex Systems (complexity theory, agent-based modeling, evolutionary computation, and the like). Plans are being worked at present; we expect to have a web-based announcement soon. We are intending a call-for-papers, web-based paper submission, paper rating, and registration processes, and a typical conference-type setup in an academic setting. Fees will be kept lower than most hotel-based conferences but some feels will have to be collected.

The Conference dates are June 21-22, 2007, and the location is UCSD (University of California, San Diego; participants will be responsible for making their own hotel reservations). Note that the INCOSE Symposium in 2007, also in San Diego, begins Sunday June 24th, with some meetings on Saturday the 23rd; these dates are intended to make it as easy as possible for people to attend both conferences in one trip. (especially important for non-US participants).

We hope that INCOSE will be sponsoring this conference but that is not yet confirmed. However, but we are firm on the location (graciously volunteered by Professor Hal Sorenson) and the date.

I am now looking for help: people willing to review papers, promote the conference in systems engineering and complex system venues, set up web resources, advise the conference committee, and of course participate by submitting papers and organizing other important aspects of the conference. Note: benefits to you include early views into the papers as well as insight into the birth of this new field.

Please indicate your interest by commenting (with some sort of contact information, please) or by writing to sheard _at_
