Editorial - The Future of CS research is starting now

The European research in complex systems is more dynamic then ever, as
it is shown by the new nine Complexity-NET Interdisciplinary
Challenges for Complexity Science projects. This November Newsletter
starts presenting the Complexity-NET projects that are about to
start. Others will be mentioned in the following issues.

RESINEE - RESilience and Interaction of Networks in Ecology and
Economics will be developed by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
and Universidad de Alcalá in Spain, University of Cambridge and
University of Manchester in UK, and Universiteit Utrecht in The
Netherlands. The main goal is to explore the structure and robustness
of networks under different types of threat and degrees of
decision-making power for nodes in the network. The study of specific
problems in economics and ecology will make the project relevant to
the design and control of complex systems in real-world contexts.

The COSMIC - COmplexity in Spatial dynaMICs project is linking three
research groups: Spatial Economics at the Free University of Amsterdam
(VU), The Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at University
College London (UCL), and the National Centre for Geocomputation (NCG)
at the National University of Ireland at Maynooth (NUIM). The project
aims to study urban dynamic processes using new bottom up, digital
data collected for entire populations using web 2.0 technologies such
as crowd-sourcing, GPS and more conventional data mining of large
electronically available spatial data sets concerning social and
economic transactions and interactions.

This issue of our Newsletter will also report on the recent
conferences and will announce new ones, together with the now famous
Reading snippets. We hope you will enjoy your reading.
