THE 11TH EXPERIMENTAL CHAOS AND COMPLEXITY conference, second announcement

The 11th Experimental Chaos and Complexity conference will be held on
June 1-4, 2010 at Université Lille 1 – Sciences et Technologies, in
Villeneuve d’Ascq near Lille, France.

UPDATE: Registration and abstract submission are now open at To contribute, please first
create an account, then register, and submit an
abstract. Contributions submitted up to MARCH 15 are eligible for oral
presentation, poster submissions will be accepted up to APRIL
30. Early registration deadline is APRIL 15. All key dates are given
on Participants are
strongly advised to make their hotel reservations as soon as
possible, as there are several active conference centers in Lille at
that time of the year.

The conference is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the
French Ministry of Research and Higher Education, Centre National de
la Recherche Scientifique, Région Nord-Pas de Calais, Université
Lille 1 and Campus Intelligence Ambiante.

Members of the worldwide scientific, medical and engineering
communities interested in recent developments and techniques of
experimental nonlinear dynamics are invited to attend the conference
and to contribute to its technical sessions and workshops. For more
information and abstract submission see the conference web site:
