Evo Devo Universe is a global community of theoretical and applied physicists, chemists, geologists, ffbiologists, cognitive and social scientists, economists, computer scientists, technologists, philosophers, information theorists, complexity scholars and systems theorists who are interested in better characterizing the relationship and difference between evolutionary and developmental processes in the universe and its subsystems. The project originated from John Smart and Clément Vidal in Jan 2008.
