Global Systems Dynamics and Policies: simulation and visualisation technologies

Society currently faces a set of new challenges that are both global in scale and highly dynamic. Some of the most critical are: climate change, energy, security and the spread of diseases. They involve resources and impacts which no single in society controls, but which affect all people worldwide. There is an obvious need to create a new set of links between scientists and stakeholders to develop new simulation and visualisation methods to analyse these issues and to seek new ways in which science can support policy and decision making. The workshop will bring together the scientists specialising in the analysis of these global challenges and experts in the application of new and emerging technologies for the analysis of complex, dynamic systems. We focus on exploration of new mechanisms and applications of modern simulation tools for rapid analysis of complex dynamic systems, including the analysis of very large, dispersed data sets.
