Complexity Conference 2018


Theme: Complexities of Time

​Date:     19-21 March 2018
Venue:   Nanyan​g Executive Centre, Singapore​​

"The world remains, always, a bundle of processes evolving in time."
                                                                                                             Lee S​m​olin

We, the world we live in and the universe(s) we are part of are being and have been shaped by processes evolved along different time scales. Think of the time scales of evolution (from the expansion of the universe to the development of life, the diversity of life and the extinction of species), the time scales of chemical reactions and our metabolic processes, the time scales of social processes, and the time scales (linear or circular) along which our histories, communities, families and individual lives develop. These processes interact in ways that give causes to phenomena of changes that lead to the reality we live in. Through legends, literature, art & science, we know the outcome of these interactions but the dynamics and complexities of these interactions are largely unknown.

This 7th Complexity Conference, organised by Para Limes​ attempts to unravel these mysteries. It will also touches on the nature of time and change, geographical, geophysical, cultural, the personal dimensions to time; how to deal with them and what they mean for analyzing and understanding our past, sensing and exploring our future and how to manage our lives, our systems, or the world we live in. Hear them out from top-notch speakers of prominent scientists and thinkers from this field

The conference will also host parallel & poster sessions and launch of the Asian Network of Complexity Scientists by the Complexity Institute. Thus is a partnership of the Para Limes and Complexity Institute.​

Please join us for a stimulating conference !​
