Master Systèmes complexes

To candidate to the program, please follow the instructions underneath.

The “Complex Systems” M2 master program, with emphasis on “Physics, Computer science and Complex Networks”, is organised by IXXI and the ENS of Lyon to provide an innovative training for students who are interested in the interdisciplinary research of complex networks and modeling of complex systems.

This program maintains a balance between different disciplines by combining courses from the fields of biology, computer science, mathematics, physics and sociology. Students from all of these disciplines are welcome to participate; the student will follow both the ”Complex Systems” program and part of their own M2: Computer Science, Physics, Bioscience or Mathematics (please contact the people responsible of the program for more details).

The inscriptions to the program has to be made by contacting Pierre Borgnat and Márton Karsai, and through the online application CADENS, before the 19 June 2017 (all M2 programs) or before the 16 August 2017 (all M2 programs but Physics). For more details see hereYou will need also to fill the following forms and send them to Pierre Borgnat and Marton Karsai:

Inscription to "Complex Systems program, in the Computer Science or Physics Master 2 of ENS of Lyon

The program puts a special focus on the theory and modelling of complex networks and provides special training in data-driven research. In the end of the program students will receive a degree supplement assigned in their original master degree. All courses are given in English (optionally in French) for 4 or 6 ECTS during the fall between September and February. For a successful validation the participating students are required to collect 30 ECTS during the first semester, and 30 ECTS for the second semester, from the following offer:

Mandatory courses

  • Introduction to Computer Science*  (S. Thomasse) - 28h + 8h TD, 6 ECTS (includes Epistemology of the modeling of complex systems, S. Franceschelli)
  • Introduction to Statistical Physics* (N. Garnier, A. Tanguy) - 28h + 8h TD, 6 ECTS (includes Epistemology of the modeling of complex systems, S. Franceschelli)
  • Complex Networks (**CS CR 15 CS course), M. Karsai, E. Fleury - 24h + 8h TD, 4 ECTS
  • Dynamical processes and networks, P. Borgnat, M. Karsai - 20h + 8h TD, 4 ECTS

* mandatory course for students who are not from the same discipline (and that cannot be validated fro students of the same discipline)

Research courses

Research Schools

  • Information, Statistical Physics and Computation (TBA) - 2.5 days (14h), 2 ECTS

** these courses are also included in the Computer Science Master Program (scheduled to complete by the end of January) and count as CS master courses for Computer Scienc students.

Research Internship

The students have to follow a research internship of at leats 16 or 20 weeks, during the second semester and it will count as 18 or 30 ECTS (validated by a written report and an oral presentation).
