CSH Workshop: “Modeling Neolithic Crises”

Oct 17, 2019 | 9:30Oct 18, 2019 | 17:00
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39

This workshop is organized by Peter Turchin, CSH External Faculty.   Room: Salon Abstract: As our knowledge of Neolithic populations increases and becomes more quantitative, several research teams have proposed that the population dynamics of groups that switched from foraging to agriculture and animal husbandry do not fit the idea of a monotonic increase towards carrying capacity, as was envisioned in early models (Ammerman and Cavalli-Sforza 1973). In particular, research by Stephen Shennan’s group (Shennan et al. 2013, Shennan 2018)…

The lecture by Célian Colon, IIASA will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Room: 201 If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at. Abstract The economy of the United Republic of Tanzania is growing fast but remains vulnerable to disasters. Its transport system, which mainly consist of roads, often get disrupted by floods, leading to large economic losses. How could its resilience be improved? We formulate a dynamic agent-based model which combines two approaches: network criticality…

CSH Planning Workshop on the Historical Dynamics of Social Norms and Sentiments Underlying Cooperation

This workshop is organized by Peter Turchin, CSH External Faculty. Room: Salon   Abstract:   What processes explain social breakdown, recovery, and resilience is a “Big Question” in social and political sciences. The overwhelming majority of approaches testing various hypotheses about social resilience focus on “hard” data, such as climate change, food and water supply, demographic rates, trade and financial systems, and economic inequality. These data are “hard” in the sense that we know how to measure various quantities of…

The lecture by Martin Polz, MIT will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at. Location: Salon   Abstract:   Microbes are the dominant form of life on the planet but we know very little about what biological principles structure microbial life. For animal and plant communities, important biological units are species and communities, yet for microbes these are difficult to define due to inherent instability. I will present some…

The lecture by Helena Miton, CEU, SFI will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract:   A cultural evolution framework can be used to understand the spread of medical beliefs and practices and open new avenues of research on those topics. Integrating knowledge from cognitive science to cultural evolutionary models can be used to understand the spread and evolution of health-related practices. I illustrate this point…

The lecture by Vera Hemmelmayr from WU Vienna will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract:   This talk presents an application in collaborative recycling efforts for non-profit agencies. The work is motivated by a project with a network of hunger relief agencies (e.g., food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters) focusing on collaborative approaches to address their cardboard recycling challenges collectively. The problem is modeled…

The lecture by Jenny Reddish, CSH Vienna will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Room: Salon Abstract In September 2019, the Seshat Global History Databank began a long-term collaboration with the Complexity Science Hub, forming a new Research Group on Social Complexity and Collapse. This unique databank serves as a massive repository of structured data about the evolution of past societies. It captures information on sociopolitical organization, religion, warfare, technology, and agriculture for a global sample of societies…

CSH Talk by Miguel Centeno: “From Global Risk to Collapse”

The lecture by Miguel Centeno from Princeton University will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon Abstract:   There is no better indicator of increasing globalization than the massive and accelerating increase in international transactions beginning in the late 1970s. These in turn have required the construction of a complex system of global nodes and links providing the channels through which these can flow. The interdependence of massive global interactions and structures has caused systemic risk to…

CANCELLED: CSH Talk by Yvonne-Anne Pignolet: “Elites in social networks—An axiomatic approach to power balance”

Nov 14, 2019
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39
Wien, 1080
+ Google Map

This talk will be postponed!     Abstract:   Recent evidence shows that in many societies the relative sizes of the economic and social elites are continuously shrinking. Is this a natural social phenomenon? We address this question by introducing an axiom-based model for the mutual influence between the elite and the periphery. Among other results derived from this model, we show that in social networks that respect our axioms, the size of a compact elite is sublinear in the…
