The Satellite Meeting Complex Behaviour in Discrete Systems is organized during the 9th European Conference on Complex Systems (ECCS), the world's largest gathering of researchers in complex systems, organized in Brussels, September 3-7, 2012.

The goals of this meeting are fivefold:

  • foster the interest in discrete dynamical systems
  • express and discuss the views on current trends, challenges, and state-of-the art with respect to complex behaviour in discrete dynamical systems
  • communicate the most recent advances on methods to quantitatively grasp and control discrete dynamical systems
  • perpetuate the dynamical systems point of view on the intriguing dynamics of discrete dynamical systems
  • gain insight into the dynamics and stability of models based upon discrete modelling paradigms

You are kindly invited to submit a paper to our Satellite Meeting Complex Behaviour in Discrete Dynamical Systems that is held in the framework of this conference, and which is a continuation of the Satellite Meeting Unravelling Discrete Dynamical Systems that was organized in 2011.


Submissions are invited on the complex behaviour and dynamical properties of a wide variety of discrete dynamical systems. In particular, we encourage submissions on

  • Agent-based models
  • Cellular automata
  • Coupled-map lattices
  • Graph automata
  • Interacting particle systems
  • Maps
  • Networks
  • Spatial point models
  • Substitution systems
  • Turing machines

Possible topics include

  • Dimensions
  • Entropies
  • Lyapunov exponents
  • Self-Organization
  • Sensitive dependence on initial conditions
  • Symbolic dynamics
