The event will be held off-campus so MRC are unable to make any accommodation arrangements for participants and funds are not available to assist with any accommodation expenses. In the 'other' section please also indicate your association with the Centre for Complexity Science.
Where possible, visitors should obtain an EDUROAM account from their own university to enable internet access whilst at Warwick.
You can register for any of the symposia or workshops online. To see which registrations are currently open and to submit a registration, please click here.
