An invitation to all ASU community members


To the ASU Community:
CCS’15 (Conference on Complex Systems) is coming to North America for the first time after 14 years in Europe. For the first time, CCS’15 is truly a global conference, both in scope-the 7 Tracks cover all major disciplines in complexity science, and in attendance. We are expecting about 600 people from every corner of the world. As complexity scientists at ASU, we represent to the world, not only the best of ASU transdisciplinary research but also the best in complexity science in the US. We cordially invite you to participate in CCS’15 All ASU community receive a $100 discount at registration. Grad Students may receive full refund of registration fee by volunteering to help out during the conference or immediately before or after. Some departments are offering fee waivers to their faculty.
