The Complex Systems group at IN3 (CoSIN3) develops research towards the discovery of underlying mechanisms in complex networked systems. Such research comes both with a fundamental and an applied emphasis, pivoting mostly (but not exclusively) on two pillars:
- Computational Social Science (CSS), is a new discipline that can offer powerful models and methods (mainly from Complex Systems), large datasets, algorithms and computational power (Computer and Data Science), and a conceptual framework for the results to be interpreted (Social Science).
- Urban science: study of emerging behaviors from interlaced layers of personal interaction, infrastructure networks (communication, transport, energy), land uses, air quality, etc. that we find in urban systems.
