The Annual CSCS/ICAM Symposium 2020

Microbes, mice, and mockingbirds, economic markets and electronic machines all communicate but each does so in very different ways. This one-day symposium, sponsored by the University of Michigan's Center for the Study of Complex Systems in collaboration with the Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter, will bring together six leading researchers working across these diverse systems to investigate the emergence of communication and how it facilitates learning and language. The aim is to explore what makes these systems different and, importantly, what they have in common.

This symposium is free and open to the public. REGISTRATION is required for lunch.
