This special issue of Journal of Dynamics and Games is devoted to studies that apply concepts and methods for modelling and dealing with complexity including genetic algorithms, network, cellular automata, evolutionary behaviour, informational theory, computational, statistical and mathematical models, non-linear systems, agent-based models, to analyse and describe complex phenomena in different disciplines.
This special issue is motivated by the work presented at the 1st and 2nd Interdisciplinary Workshop on Complex Systems (IWCS). The second IWCS was held in Montevideo, Uruguay, alongside the Conference Jornadas Acadmicas de la Facultad de Ciencias Econmicas y de Administracin in Montevideo, Uruguay at the Faculty of Economics of the University of the Republic (UdelaR) during the period November 5-7 of 2018. The first IWCS was held during the period October 30 – November 1st of 2017, alongside the Conference Ⅳ Jornadas de Estadstica Aplicada in the Cultural Center of La Paloma Rocha (Uruguay) and was organized by the CURE - UdelaR. The numbers of papers accepted were small and the meetings were held in a single track format, in order to increase interaction and discussion among the participants, followed by a closing debate discussion on the topic. Papers submitted to the workshops had been rigorously peer-reviewed and judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the topics of the workshop. We would like to thank Sergio Palomeque (Udelar, Uruguay) for the help in all the review and editorial process.
The authors of selected papers were invited to submit extended versions of their conference papers, which then underwent the regular review process of the Journal of Dynamics and Games, resulting in this Special Issue where we present six articles. These six articles present some of the latest interdisciplinary research on complex systems. We hope that you find these articles interesting and motivating, and that you will find the opportunity to participate in future IWCS workshops.
Finally we would like to thank the program committee, all the authors and the reviewers for their fine efforts and contributions, and the Journal of Dynamics and Games, with special thanks to Alberto Pinto Batten, the Editor in Chief, for keeping us on track and managing the entire submission and review process.
