Following the first two years of existence of the Academy, this edition of the Proceedings of the Complex Systems Academy of Excellence was prepared in the wake of the first “Complex Days” Academy-wide meeting, which took place in Nice in January 2018. This book is a glimpse of the ongoing research in the field of complex systems at the University of the Côte d'Azur at a very precise point in time. It highlights the broad spectrum of scientific activities covered by topics ranging from mathematics and physics to archeology, chemistry and space science, ecology and biophysics.

2. Complex days

The Complex Systems Academy covers a broad spectrum of scientific activities that often transcend conventional scientific fields. Its main mission is to encourage cross-disciplinary research themes and identify shared methodological approaches in order to identify common objects of study.
The study of complex systems aims to discover the laws at the origin of phenomena and events that seem random to us (rumors, weather, earthquakes, etc.) in order to predict them. To understand "complexity", the collaboration of scientists from different disciplines is essential.
In order to strengthen ties within its scientific community composed of more than 400 scientists from 15 different research laboratories (mathematics, physics, chemistry, human and social sciences, etc.), the Academy organizes, each year, the Complex Days.
The second edition of the Complex Days was held on Monday, March 25, 2019. This scientific day dedicated to complex systems brought together close to one hundred researchers from various laboratories: Nice Institute of Physics (INPHYNI), Nice Institute of Chemistry (ICN), the Economics and Management Law Research Group (GREDEG), the Mathematics Laboratory (JAD), the Research Center on Hetero-Epitaxy and its Applications (CRHEA), etc.
Throughout the day, four keynote speakers invited for the occasion gave presentations illustrating different visions of complex systems. Well-known to the scientific community, guest speakers such as Márton Karsai (Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme à l'Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon), Jean-Louis Dufresne (Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique et Institut Pierre Simon Laplace, Paris), Christian Rey (société SAFRAN) and Nadine Peyrieras (Institut des Neurosciences de Paris-Saclay) demonstrated the diversity of research topics covered in complex systems.
In addition to the presentations, lively poster sessions were also organized to maximize networking opportunities. In total, more than 30 posters were displayed. Three prizes of €2,000 per person were awarded to the best poster presentations.
These awards were used to cover the travel expenses of doctoral and post-doctoral students attending international conferences. In addition, doctoral students (EDSFA/STIC) who participated in the event also received the equivalent of 4 hours of transversal doctoral credit or 5 hours of coursework.
