Abstract submission

We invite contributions in the form of one-page abstracts for oral presentation, indicating ideas, challenges, or solutions in steering complex living or life-like systems (please see the call for abstracts and full list of topics).  Abstracts will be selected on the alignment with topic and capacity to provoke debate.

In addition, during the workshop we will have opportunity for demonstrations, e.g., of prototype methods or tools that could aid the steering of complex systems.  To exhibit a demo, please also submit a one-page abstract/description.


Email a PDF of your abstract to the organisers!

Informal inquiries & expressions of interest also welcome via email
