III Biennial International Transdisciplinary Seminar on the Complexity Approach– February 23 to 27, 2009 - Camagüey - Cuba

 

1st ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Agency:

Ministry of Higher Education

 

Topics of interest:

 

Transdisciplinarity:

Conceptual and theoretical developments, transdisciplinary research methodology, transdisciplinary research projects, challenges and barriers to transdisciplinarity, relationship between discipline, multidiscipline, interdiscipline, transdiscipline and the solution of complex problems of the real world, transdisciplinary curriculum development, the language of transdisciplinarity.

 

Complexity:

Nonlinear Science, Selforganization, Chaos Theory, Fractals, Fuzzy Logic, SoftComputing, Complex Networks Theory, Critical Phenomena, Phase Transitions, Quantum Chaos, Coherent Structures, Random Dynamical Systems Theory, Nonlinear Time Series, Computational Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems (Agents-based and Cellular Automata); and other ways to approach the study of the complex behavior of the systems. Relationship between complexity and various fields of knowledge. Systematization of the language of complexity.

 

The Transdisciplinary Approach of Complexity:

The implications of the complex behavior of systems and the need of a transdisciplinary vision for their study. Development of complex transdisciplinary thinking. Reports of examples of solution of complex problems in the real world. The Transdisciplinary University.

 

Program (preliminary):

 

• Workshop sessions on Transdisciplinarity.

• Workshop sessions on Complexity.

• Workshop sessions on the Transdisciplinary Approach of Complexity.
