About the Local Chapter Initiative

This initiative to create a “local chapter” of the Complex Systems Society is intended, among other things, to promote complex systems research (pure and applied) at national level, and to create links between the various French complex systems research centers (a role formerly fulfilled by the Réseau National des Systèmes Complexes).

It is supported by numerous French researchers and major research centers in complex systems, including ISC-PIF and IXXI, who were instrumental in the creation of the Complex Systems Society in 2004.

In the same way as the local chapters already established within the Complex Systems Society (North-Eastern Local Chapter (US), Italian Local Chapter and Spanish Local Chapter), the French Local Chapter will contribute to the international visibility of French research on complex systems.
