    From genarojm@21:1/5 to All on Sun Dec 13 11:09:56 2015
    13th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control (ICNSC2016)
    April 28-30, 2016, Mexico City, Mexico


    Special Session On “Big data in complex systems, network theory, cybernetics, and artificial life”


Complex systems have been studied for some time, but it was not until recently that sampling complex systems became possible, systems ranging from computational methods such as high-throughput biology, to systems with sufficient storage capacity to
    store and analyze prize market transactions. The advent of Big Data is therefore the result of the availability of computing power to process these complex systems, from social to economic, from physical to biological systems. Much has been said on the
    importance of being able to deal with large amounts of data but little about how to model, represent and better analyze the dynamics of complex systems. The special session will stimulate a strong national participation. Challenges in Mexico represent a
    great opportunity for complex systems research and theory development to tackle current and future challenges of the country and the future world ranging from biodiversity, security, social impact, population dynamics, epidemiology, genetic modified food,
    technology development, cultural aspects, violence, waste disposal and so on. Topics of interest are not limited to basic and applied research in complexity science and artificial life from the perspectives of computer science, mathematics, physics,
    biology and the social sciences.

    Topics related to computational modeling methods such as:
    - Cellular automata
    - Agents and distributed computing
    - Neural networks
    - Complex networks
    - Patterns
    - L-systems
    - Dynamical systems
    - Quantum systems
    to mention some examples.

    The 13th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control (ICNSC´2016) will be held in Mexico City, Mexico. This conference will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges and
    share solutions, and discuss future research directions. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, and funding agency panel sessions, interactive sessions, invited/special sessions and tutorials. Contributions are expected from
    academia, industry, and management agencies. All accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.

    Safety: Mexico is the 14th largest country in the world (by area, 11th by population, 14th by GDP, 11th GDP parity) and the largest Spanish-speaking country. Much has been said on the news but while some parts of Mexico have been affected by drug-related
    violence (in their way to the U.S. the largest illegal drug market in the world), safety in Mexico City is not different to other cities in North America and Asia and visitors should not particularly worry. Mexico City has a crime rate of 22 per 100K
    people, comparable to Pennsylvania and not far from Philadelphia’s (16) or Washington, DC (15), far below the city of Detroit (43.5) and way far from many other cities in Latin America including Rio de Janeiro. Mexico City does not make the top 50 in
    the world rankings of cities with the highest homicide rates—-a list including New Orleans, Detroit, Baltimore and St. Louis. Mexico is the 10th. most visited country with almost 30 million visitors every year from around the world (UNWTO 2015).

    Pollution: Mexico City pollution has since dropped significantly, as the city has become a model for dramatically lowering pollution levels by investing in clean public transportation and renewing and regulating the use of cars. By 2014, carbon monoxide
    pollution had dropped dramatically, while levels of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide were nearly three times lower than in 1992. The levels of signature pollutants in Mexico City are currently similar to those of Los Angeles.

    Transportation: Mexico City has one of the most efficient and largest subway systems in the world transporting 4.5 million people every day with 12 lines and almost 200 metro stations covering most of the city. The conference is being held in one of the
    modern hubs in Mexico City (if you watched the latest James Bond movie Spectre, the conference venue is on the same skyscrapers avenue as shown at the end of the movie intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AevTy_plE0w).

    History: Mexico’s capital is both the oldest capital city in the Americas and the capital of the Aztecs, an ancient metropolis founded in 1325 under the name Tenochtitlan (of which ruins are still visible in the very center of the city close to the
    conference venue) subsequently redesigned and rebuilt in accordance with the highest Spanish urban standards (described by von Humboldt as the ‘city of palaces’ ‘rivaling any European city’). In 1524, it became the capital of the Spanish Empire
    in the Americas controlling almost half of the continent from Guatemala to Texas. Today it is the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world, the largest metropolitan area in the Western Hemisphere and one of the most populated in the world with more
    than 20 million inhabitants (according to some lists only next to Tokyo).

    Culture: London and Mexico City compete for the greatest number of museums. They range from the charming Frida Kahlo museum to the National Museum of Anthropology displaying the Aztec calendar in an astonishing classical Mexican architecture building.
    The latest addition to the list of museums is the futuristic building Soumaya Museum with national and European masterpieces. Mexican food is the only cuisine in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List (not your Tex-Mex favorite restaurant). Mexico
    City concentrates all types of food from all the corners of Mexico.
