Complexity Science

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
in englischer Sprache

In an increasingly interconnected world complexity is rising rapidly. Huge amounts of data from systems and sensors on the one hand, drastic changes in society on the other. And everything is somehow connected. Complexity science tries to make the effects of current developments on the whole of society comprehensible.
