Contemporary resource and environmental management and associated policies, including economic instruments and incentives, have to a large extent been based on steady-state views and assumptions. Research on complex adaptive systems contests models and policies that are based on assumptions of linear dynamics, with a focus on optimal solution in the vicinity of a single equilibrium. Social-ecological adaptationRecent research has revealed that applications of such theory and world views tend to develop governance systems that invest in controlling a few selected ecosystem processes, causing loss of ecological support functions, in the urge to produce particular resources to fulfill economic or social goals in the short term.

News and Announcements The Human Brain Project to move to the Campus Biotech in Geneva Grâce The research grounds involved in the Human Brain Project and the Blue Brain Project, as well as most scientists from the Center for Neuroprosthetics, will join the new "Campus Biotech" facilities in Geneva, while remaining full part of EPFL. Un surper-ordinateur permettant de simuler le cerveau d'une souris vient d'être créé Grâce a lui, les chercheurs de l'EPFL pourront reproduire, en trois dimensions, les 70 millions de neurones d'un cerveau de souris >>. Neural simulations hint at the origin of brain waves

Institute for Complex System Simulations (Home page) Welcome to the University of Southampton's Institute for Complex Systems Simulation. The £12m Institute was launched in 2009 and is jointly funded by EPSRC (£6 million) and the University of Southampton and its partners (£6 million). The Institute brings together world-class simulation modelling research activities from across the University of Southampton and hosts Southampton's Doctoral Training Center (DTC) in Complex Systems Simulation, running a doctoral training programme that is the first of its kind in the UK. Famously, the physicist Stephen Hawking has predicted that the 21st Century will be "the century of complexity". What did he mean?
039;s Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity November 5-6, 2010 2010 Computational Social Science Society Conference September 30 - October 2, 2010 IASC North American Regional Meeting CSDC joins the Consortium for Biosocial Complex Systems Together with the Center for Institutional Diversity and the Mathematical, Computational, and Modeling Sciences Center, the CSDC has been brought into the Consortium for Biosocial Complex Systems under the leadership of Sander van der Leeuw. "Integration is the key to being a leader in solving complex challenges," van der Leeuw says. "You must be able to look at problems holistically, and not just at one point in time, but across time.
