Description and Aim
The Third International School on the Design Of Collective Intelligence (DECOI2009) will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands, from February 23-27, 2009.
The school follows on two highly successful predecessors, attracting many participants and high profile keynote speakers. The DECOI aims to provide master/graduate students and researchers with the opportunity to learn techniques and methods for designing collective intelligence. The school will cover a spectrum of topics within this field to provide students with knowledge about methods and techniques (evolutionary computing, artificial life models, self organizing systems) as well as related research domains (sociology, economics, biology). The school is set up as a lecture/workshop environment where students learn about theories and tools for modeling and analyzing complex systems and get hand on experience with the implementation of several models. Participants are also encouraged to present their own work/projects.
