Dr. Slobodan Simonvic (Professor Emeritus amd Adjunct Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Engineering) – Global Change Explorer (GCE): an interactive tool for investigating complexities of global change

Siobhan (Practicum Placement Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, School of Health Studies, Faculty of Health Science) – Using social networks to introduce new learners to complex system theory

Emma (Practicum Placement Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, School of Health Studies, Faculty of Health Science) – The case for integrating complex systems studies in undergraduate programs

Ameera (Practicum Placement Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, School of Health Studies, Faculty of Health Science) – Canada’s COVID-19 Response: Analyzing the Complexity of Public Health Interventions

Paige, Peter, Fionntan, Jonathan (Scholar’s Electives 4400Y CEL Fall 2020 and Winter 2021) – CAS Lab mapping results with Kumu.io (see introduction to the project at https://cas.uwo.ca/about/updates/2021/kumu-mapping-project-introduction.html)

Western University’s Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) Lab is a network hub where researchers, staff, students, and collaborators studying complex adaptive systems can easily find one another across faculties and departments, learn from one another, and build upon one each other’s work. Find out more about the Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) Lab at https://cas.uwo.ca/

Webinar: Mapping Canadian Complex Systems Scholarship

Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation (WICI) is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, January 6th @ 2 p.m. with Jinelle Piereder, Mapping Canadian Complex Systems Scholarship: A Bibliometric and Network Analysis.

In this talk, Jinelle Piereder, PhD Candidate in Global Governance at Balsillie School of International Affairs, will draw out key insights from her forthcoming report—Mapping Canadian Complex Systems Scholarship: A Bibliometric and Network Analysis—including the thematic clusters of WICI member research, an evaluation of several bibliometric and network analysis tools, and the challenges around identifying (and measuring the impact of) complex systems research and scholars. Jinelle will also provide a tour of several interactive databases, reports, and maps so attendees can engage directly with the data and results of the project. This will also be an opportunity for participants/attendees to ask questions about the project results and discuss its recommendations to WICI.
