In collaboration with EIFER and De Montfort University, we managed to get a satellite which you may find interesting. It is not too late to contribute a paper particularly if you will be at ECCS anyway.
We are interested in complex systems perspectives on modelling smart systems which deliver sustainable integrated utility services. If you want to read more please see the satellite description at http://www.som.cranfield.ac.uk/som/p19607/Research/Research-Centres/Complex-Systems-Research-Centre/ECCS13-Satellite-Workshop
Looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona.

…due to some accidents of communication, but there will be at least two publications in this area.
1. it looks likely that a Special Issue of Journal of Policy and Complex Systems will happen with a selection of papers from the 2012 workshop.
2. Robert Geyer and Paul Cairney are co-editing a handbook on on “Complexity and Public Policy” for publisher Edgar Elgar, which aims to be published in 2014.
Policy Informatics Network
A new mailing list (called Policy Informatics Network (PIN-L)) to connect a group of 80+ researchers who attended the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) conference and others. (Not the mailing list for the CRW@ECCS workshop!)
A couple of weeks ago we launched a Listserv (called Policy Informatics Network (PIN-L)) to connect a group of 80+ researchers who attended the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) conference last year.The group is made up of individuals from over 30 different universities and research centers interested in the umbrella area of policy informatics. The focus of the community of interest is on the use of information technologies and the multiple approaches to systems modeling to inform policy inquiry. We are excited about this opportunity to form a community of kindred scholars, practitioners and researchers.
We are writing to encourage you to do two things:
(1) Subscribe to this listerv so that you can follow and help support
these efforts, and
(2) Forward a copy of this message to colleagues and friends who are
also interested in promoting a tighter linkage between policy informatics and
main line public policy researchers.

There is a (different) workshop: “Complexity Science and Social Science at the Interface to the Real World” 25/26 September 2012 in the UK (http://www.csrw.ac.uk/events-hosted/complex-interface-conference-2012), a few places only remain for this, so register soon if you want to go to this.
