=== Complexity Transitions in Big History: Transition Definitions, Growth Curve Hypotheses, and Future Scenarios ===
'''1.''' Explore a Variety of Complexity Transition Definitions for Big History: Thermodynamic, Informational-Computational, Evolutionary, Developmental, Integrative, and Systemic<BR>
'''2.''' Associate these Definitions with a Variety of Tentative Growth Curve Hypotheses: Superexponential, Exponential, Logistic, and Other<BR>
'''3.''' Consider A Range of Transition and Growth Curve Scenarios Implied by these Hypotheses for the Future of Technological Innovation and Sustainability.<BR>
We will seek out and network transition scholars, periodization, and acceleration, multi-level evolution and development scholars, world system modelers, and their critics. Scholars who approach evolutionary transitions from thermodynamic, informational-computational, evolutionary, developmental, integrative, and systemic perspectives are particularly desired. We will seek to compare logistic, exponential, and superexponential models arising from a variety of complexity transition definitions, and finally, explore a range of scenarios these models propose for the future of innovation and sustainability, underscoring the great technical, political, economic, and social value of better scholarship and science in this area.<BR>

We are presently developing a proposal to host EDU 2011 at a U.S. venue. We expect to know by mid-2010 which venue will host EDU 2011.
If you have an interest in working on the EDU 2011 conference development committee, sponsoring the event, or providing other assistance, please contact [[Clément Vidal]] and/or [[John Smart]].
