Third French Regional Conference on Complex Systems, 31 Mai – 02 Juin 2023, Le Havre

Date :

You are cordially invited to submit your contribution until March 6, 2023. (firm deadline)
The French Regional Conference on Complex Systems (FRCCS) is an International annual Conference organized in France since 2021. After Dijon (2021), Paris (2022), Le Havre host its third edition (FRCCS 2023). It promotes interdisciplinary exchanges between researchers from various scientific disciplines and backgrounds (sociology, economics, history, management, archaeology, geography, linguistics, statistics, mathematics, and computer science). FRCCS 2023 is an opportunity to exchange and promote the cross-fertilization of ideas by presenting recent research work, industrial developments, and original applications. Special attention is given to research topics with a high societal impact from the complexity science perspective.
