Call for Attractors

THIS CALL IS NOW CLOSED.

We invite you to respond to the Tribute to Uncertainty theme.

Deadline: March 1, 2012

Do you have something original to say about our world that is increasingly fuzzy, unstable and chaotic? Are you interested in how crisis, uncertainty and complexity can come together in order to question the known as well as predict and/or model yet unknown? Do you want to share projects intrinsically linking domains of scientific, artistic and technological research and creativity that can be introduced as relevant tools for better understanding of our common future?

The aim of this Call for Attractors is to provide opportunity for community of interdisciplinary practitioners to get engaged in conference preparation via proposing specific streams of research and creative interest and involving interested individuals in structured collaborative efforts before and during the conference. Research groups proposed and formed by the Attractors will be expected to elaborate on the general theme Tribute to Uncertainty while turning attention to concrete research objectives. Priority will be given to innovative and challenging proposals.

Attractors, via this application, have a chance to shape the Call for Abstracts (to open in early March), get involved in the evaluation of submitted abstracts as well as leading “their” research groups. All attractors will be given special recognition in the conference communication and publications.
