Our next conference is Evolution, Development, and Complexity 2017, a one-day satellite conference, 20 Sept 2017. It is part of the Conference on Complex Systems 2017, 17-22 Sept, in Cancun, Mexico. Keynote speakers are being recruited now (April 2017) and a call for papers will soon be circulated for this event.
Any EDU member may start a conference, by recruiting a technical committee of at least three EDU or external scholars publishing in the proposed conference topic, and colocating as a satellite meeting at a larger academic conference that is related to our research themes. Various Complexity Sciences, Information Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Astrobiology, Evolution, Sociology, Technology, Systems Science and Philosophy conferences are potential colocation hosts.
Themes we've considered for our upcoming conferences include:
- Acceleration (Informationalization, Densification, Dematerialization, STEM compression)
- Astrobiology, Astrosociology, Astrotechnology
- Computational Complexity
- Cosmic Convergent Evolution
- Cosmological Natural Selection with Intelligence
- Evolutionary Developmental Systems Theory
- Free Energy Rate Density
- High Energy Astrobiology
- Metasystem Transitions
- Science of Performance Curves
See our Conference themes page for other ideas for future EDU conferences.
If you are a scholar publishing on any EDU research themes, and would like to help put together our next conference, please join the EDU-Talk listserve, and email Clement Vidal with your proposal, thanks!
