The Natural Complexity programme of the British Antarctic Survey is organising a conference entitled “Natural Complexity – data and theory in dialogue” to take place on 13-17 August 2007 at Clare College, Cambridge. Inspired by the question: “What use is complexity science to global environmental issues” the meeting aims to highlight the contribution that complexity theories are already making to high-priority problems in the earth system sciences and to present them with new challenges.

The Meeting will begin with a 1-day symposium at the Law Faculty introducing some topical earth-system problems, aspects of complexity, and intersection points between the two.

Themes throughout the following 4 days will include:

Modern nonlinear time series analysis and dynamical systems

Beyond Brownian motion – random walks and anomalous diffusion

Collective phenomena – networks and extremes

Emergence, self-organisation, and pattern formation

The emphasis throughout the 5 days will be on the relationship of complexity theory to real-world observations and problems. We anticipate that both experts and non-experts in complexity will attend, so to aid dialogue each day will start with tutorials that collectively will cover some of the essential concepts and tools of complexity.

This talk is part of the British Antarctic Survey series.
