CCS’16 satellite session “Complexity for History and History for Complexity”
Beurs Van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. September 21, 2016
The objective of the satellite session is to explore History using Complexity (e.g. tipping points, pointing out what might have been the drivers towards the tipping points) and providing historical methodologies to complexity (e.g. urban e-planning, and epidemics).
But, it is just one angle to pursue. There are, no doubt, many others. In this satellite session, we would like to bring together historians, computer scientists, and complexity scientists to explore new complexity-theoretic tools that have emerged over the past few decades to approach historical data.
