Event description

Description

The Second International TRANSIT workshop on Cross-disciplinary Research (TWCR 2019) will be held in York, UK, 27-28 March 2019. It will be hosted by the York Cross-disciplinary Centre for Systems Analysis and the University of York.

Emergence is a term used to describe system-level collective properties and behaviours that cannot be reduced to specific properties of their individual components. From Aristotle’s “the whole is something besides the parts” to Anderson’s “More is different”, emergence captures the existence of an overall unity separate from its constituents. Emergence is a broad concept, occurring across systems comprising physical, technological, neural, biological, or social components. From physics to philosophy, from biology to art, from engineering to neuroscience, emergent properties abound, yet there remains little agreement on a formal definition of emergence, ways to analyse it, or ways to achieve it.

TWCR 2019 will explore the cross-disciplinary theme of Emergence, seeking to bring together ideas, approaches, concepts, and perspectives from natural biological systems and other physical systems, from engineered physical and virtual systems, and from human social systems.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from all these connected fields, to engage across the disciplines, to inform of latest findings, to transfer discoveries and concepts from one field to another, and to inspire new ideas and new collaborations across the theme.
