The IV. Open Global Systems Science Conference

The GSS conference 2015 with the title “Everything is Connected – Equilibrium and Disequilibrium in Social, Economic and Political Systems” was held in Genova, Italy from October 29-30, 2015. It was organized by the University of Genoa as part of the Science Festival of Genoa.

The conference sessions focused on urban systems, economic systems, financial systems, sustainability, crowdsourcing and participation, big data and high-performance computing. Speakers were Geoffrey West, Alan Kirman, Sheri Markose, Silvano Cincotti, Stefano Battiston, Luciano Pietronero, Jeffrey Johnson, representatives from the ECB and Dutch Central Bank and others.

To promote young researchers, a special Young Scholar Session was held, where 6 PhD students and PostDocs presented their innovative work related to global system science.

Additionally, there was a special exhibition area at Palazzo Ducale, where the projects funded by the European Commission under the GSS cluster presented new ICT tools developed within the projects. The exhibition area was open for visitors from the GSS conference as well as for a wider audience from the Genova Science Festival. The booths contained posters as well as screens, showing data analyses and info graphics on the different topics developed.
