Cluster 1 - Complex Engineered Systems brings together activities related to the analysis, design and control of CES and processes with application to particular sectors or technologies that exhibit the emergent behaviour of complex systems with a particular focus on gathering academics and practitioners focused upon applied CES design and management.
Cluster 2 - Complexity Science brings together capabilities in complexity science and abstract modelling. This will explore generic and cross‐cutting principles from complexity science applicable to engineered systems and the representation of these principles in various models. A particular focus will be to explore the impact of stochastic processes in the evolution of complex systems at different time and spatial scales and the use of optimisation under uncertainty to build resilience into complex systems. This will engage academic and practitioner communities interested in modelling, visualisation and big data analytics.
Cluster 3 - Natural Complex Systems brings together sectors of Natural Complexity such as biological systems, economics, astronomical systems and climate. A vital part of this group is the academics with expertise in the understanding of how people and organisations understand and respond to risk and complexity. This cluster represents sectors where the use of complexity science may be further advanced and from which insights can be developed into Engineering Systems.
