CALL FOR PAPERS
21st Annual International Conference
Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences
and 20th Anniversary Celebration
We invite interested scholars to present and discuss recent developments in nonlinear dynamical system theory, which includes chaos theory, fractals, complex systems and related topics. Over the years, the annual conferences of the Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences have inspired and supported scholars from an array of disciplines to look at new ways to develop their theoretical and empirical work in an integrated approach to life sciences.
The Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences is a multidisciplinary organization. The topics covered by the conference include applications of nonlinear dynamics theory and techniques to problems encountered in any area of the behavioral, social and life sciences including psychology, sociology, economics, econophysics, management sciences, anthropology, aesthetics, education, biology, physiology, ecology, neuroscience and medicine. One or more of the following nonlinear concepts must be an explicit part of the presentation: attractors, bifurcations, chaos, fractals, solitons, catastrophes, self-organizing processes, cellular automata, agent-based models, network analysis, genetic algorithms and related evolutionary processes, dynamical diseases, or closely related constructs. The broad mixture of the disciplines represented here indicates that many bodies of knowledge share common principles.
The program will include workshops, invited addresses, symposia, panel discussions, a poster session, and sessions of individual papers. Advances in basic or applied research, developments in theory, reports of empirical results and methodological papers are all welcome. We continue to encourage all nonlinear scientists, including graduate students who might be finishing up a dynamical thesis or dissertation, to consider sharing their ideas through paper presentations, chairing a roundtable session, or by proposing other alternative presentation formats, such as posters, product demonstrations, short workshops, or debates around controversial topics.
Our meetings will be held at the beautiful campus of Chapman University, Orange, California, USA. Orange is about 60 miles from Los Angeles and utilizes the John Wayne Airport. We will be using the newly renovated facilities of Chapman University for as our primary lodging. Additional information about these facilities and local alternative hotels will be posted to the lodging page of this conference web site.
