NERCCS 2023:
Sixth Northeast Regional Conference on Complex Systems

Sponsored by the Complex Systems Society US Northeast Chapter and the Clarkson Center for Complex Systems Science (C3S2)

NERCCS 2023: The Sixth Northeast Regional Conference on Complex Systems will follow the success of the previous NERCCS conferences to promote the emerging venue of interdisciplinary scholarly exchange for complex systems researchers in the Northeast U.S. region (and beyond) to share their research outcomes through presentations and online publications, network with their peers, and promote interdisciplinary collaboration and the growth of the research community.

NERCCS will particularly focus on facilitating the professional growth of early career faculty, postdocs, and students in the region who will likely play a leading role in the field of complex systems science and engineering in the coming years.

The 2023 conference will be held as a hybrid conference, in-person at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY, and online via Zoom.



We call for submissions for oral and poster presentations on a wide variety of complex systems research. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

Theoretical foundations of complex systems
Nonlinear dynamics and chaos
Systems theory, information theory, and systems science
Game theory, decision theory, and socio-economical applications

Self-organization, pattern formation, and collective behavior
Structure and dynamics of complex networks
Sustainability and adaptability of complex systems
Bio-inspired systems, machine learning, and evolutionary computation

Data-driven approaches to complex systems
Applications to the humanities, art, and literature
Historical and philosophical aspects of complex systems
Complex systems and education

Submissions should be made as a single PDF file via EasyChair, in either extended abstract format (1 page, including one figure) or full paper format (15 pages max.).

Full paper submission has an earlier deadline to allow for rigorous full-paper peer reviews, and if accepted, the papers will be published in Northeast Journal of Complex Systems (NEJCS) by the time of the conference (free of charge). Interested authors can contact the Publication Chairs .

Best Oral Presentation / Best Poster (Interactive Presentation) Awards: NERCCS 2023 will offer the Best Oral Presentation and Best Poster Awards. The winner will be selected from accepted papers and posters by the judge panel, which will be recognized with a certificate at the conference.
