This yeat students and staff of the Centre for Complexity went to Ravenstor in beautiful Peak District for the annual retreat.
Winter Graduation 2017
Congratulations to our second MathSys cohort who graduated from their Masters programme on 20th January. Dario Papavassiliou and Leigh Robinson were awarded their PhDs, and the last cohort of Erasmus Mundus Masters in Complex Systems Science students were awarded their degrees from both Warwick and our partner institutions: Ecole Polytechnique, Paris and Gothenburg and Chalmers Universities in Gothenburg. Many students came over from various parts of the world: Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, Kazakhstan and Rwanda, to be at the ceremony. In addition to the official University proceeding, there was also a congratulatory lunch celebration in the Centre where family and friends joined the students in celebrating their success.
Entering its thirteenth year, the annually held Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) returned to Europe this year with Amsterdam being the host venue. The 2016 edition of this international conference was attended by over 750 delegates, including a contingent of student and staff members from the Centre, to discuss the latest developments in complex systems and interdisciplinary science.
Complexity Summer Graduation
Graduating PhD students travelled back to Warwick from Hong Kong, the USA and the local area to participate in their graduation ceremony last week. We congratulate Dr Tom Machon, Dr Ben Collyer, Dr Adam Miller and Dr Yu-Xi Chau on their achievement. All four have started work either as postdocs or in the commercial sector (for full details see here) and we wish them well. Yuping (Iris) Ren graduated from the Erasmus Mundus Masters in Complex Systems Science and is now a PhD student working on music informatics and modelling at the University of Rochester, NY where she has won several awards and funding.
Congratulations to Tom Machon and Davide Michieletto for winning the Faculty of Science PhD Thesis Prizes!
Congratulations to Tom Machon (supervisor Dr Gareth Alexander) and Davide Michieletto (supervisor Professor Matthew Turner) who have been awarded the Faculty of Science PhD Thesis Prizes for their research on Aspects of Geometry and Topology in Liquid Crystalline Phases, and Topological Interactions in Ring Polymers, respectively. Tom is now a postdoc with Randy Kamien at UPenn, and Davide is a postdoc with Davide Marenduzzo at the University of Edinburgh. The Centre wishes them all the best in their careers!
Last month leading researchers from around the world came to Warwick for a three-day meeting in honour and celebration of the 60th birthday of the Centre for Complexity Science’s Director, Prof Robert MacKay FRS.
This year's workshop took place in Durham and we again had a large team participating.
First MathSys Masters graduates and Complexity Graduation
Congratulations to our first MathSys cohort who graduated from their Masters programme. Standards were high: eleven received distinctions and three were awarded a merit. Daniel Sprague and Davide Michieletto were awarded their PhDs and the 2013-15 Erasmus Mundus Masters in Complex Systems Science students were awarded their degrees from both Warwick and our partner institutions: Ecole Polytechnique, Paris and Gothenburg and Chalmers Universities in Gothenburg. Several students came over from Europe and one student even flew from South Africa to be at the ceremony and lunch celebration in the Centre. Many family and friends joined the students in celebrating their success.

Funding For New Mathsys CDT Won!
We are pleased to announce that the recent bid for funding for a new Centre for Docotral Training in Mathematics of Real-World Systems has been successful. The Centre will be funded by the EPSRC, BBSRC, and will also be able to boast strong connections and in some cases additional funding from external collaborators. The first students to join the Centre will start on its 1+3 MSc+PhD Programme in September 2014. For more inofrmation please visit; http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/newsevents/news/2013/Pages/phdnewcentres.aspx
