CFPs: Conflict, Complexity and Mathematical Social Science


Contact: g.j.burt@open.ac.uk

Dear colleague,

I wonder if you or your colleagues would be interested in attending or presenting a paper at the following events organised by the Conflict Research Society?

Imperial, June 11th: Conflict, Complexity and Mathematical Social Science, II 
LSE, July 9th: Modelling Social Conflict 
Canterbury, Sept. 8th and 9th: Conflict and Complexity II

Conflict, Complexity and Mathematical Social Science, II 
Thursday 11 June 2009, 10am-5pm. 
Host: Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Imperial College, London 
This is a follow-up to our January meeting: http://kn.open.ac.uk/public/getfile.cfm?documentfileid=14878 
We hope to bring together researchers in the following fields: peace and conflict science, complexity theory, mathematical biology, artificial intelligence, mathematical psychology, mathematical sociology, mathematical political science, mathematical economics, regional science, statistics and mathematics.

Professor Michel Rudnianski, University of Reims, guest speaker, talks about 
Conflict Analysis: The Games of Deterrence Approach: 
This talk will present the main concepts and properties of games of deterrence found so far and illustrate those concepts and properties with examples focused on competition and conflicts (in the wider sense of the term, including Negotiations, Multi-Criteria Decision Making, and Evolutionary Dynamics).

Other speakers so far include Jeremy Brett (Imperial), Roger Kingdon (Imperial) and Gordon Burt (Open U.)

Modelling Social Conflict 
Wednesday 9th July 2009; 10am to 4pm, at the LSE 
Gordon Burt will run a workshop showing how modelling in various academic disciplines can give an insight into social conflict. A 300-page monograph, Lecture Notes on Conflict, Complexity and Mathematical Social Science, supports the seminar.

For further information on the workshop and on the monograph, see: http://kn.open.ac.uk/public/document.cfm?docid=12158 .

Conflict and Complexity II: 
an international interdisciplinary conference 
Tuesday 8th - Wednesday 9th September 2009 
University of Kent, Canterbury, UK 
* Call for papers: an early expression of interest would be extremely helpful. 
   Title and abstract: very preferably before 31 May 2009.

I would like to attend: 
Imperial, June 11th: Conflict, Complexity and Mathematical Social Science, II: yes/no
