FRCCS 2021 (French Regional Conference on Complex Systems 2021) is the first edition of the French Regional Conference on Complex Systems. It aims to promote interdisciplinary exchanges between regional researchers from various scientific disciplines and backgrounds (sociology, economics, history, management, archaeology, geography, linguistics, statistics, mathematics, and computer science). FRCCS is an opportunity to exchange and promote the cross-fertilization of ideas by presenting recent research work, industrial developments, and original applications. Special attention is given to research topics with a high societal impact from the perspective of complexity science.



Keynote Speakers (To Be Updated)

Julie Dugdale University Grenoble Alps

Denise Pumain Panthéon-Sorbonne University


Submission Guidelines

Finalized work (published or unpublished) and work in progress are welcome. Two types of contributions are accepted:

· Full paper about original research
· Extended Abstract about published or unpublished research. It is recommended to be between 2-3 pages. They should not exceed four pages.


Submissions must follow the Springer publication format available on the journal Applied Network Science in the Instructions for Authors' instructions entry.
All contributions should be submitted in pdf format via EasyChair.





All Accepted submissions of unpublished work will be invited for publication in a special issue (fast track procedure) in one of the journals:
o   Applied Network Science edited by Springer
o   Complexity edited by Hindawi
