4th Annual Complexity in Business Conference
Thursday and Friday, November 8 and 9, 2012 • Washington, DC
The Annual Complexity in Business Conference endeavors to be the premier
meeting for the intersection of Complex Systems and Business. The 4th annual conference will
be a one and a half day event and will include talks by thought leaders and an audience blend
of academics and industry practitioners. We are very excited to announce that this
year we will be having a concurrent track during the conference and will be accepting
abstract submissions from the public. We are looking forward to a lively set of
interactions among a very distinguished group of researchers and business leaders.
On Thursday, November 8 at 3:00 p.m. a series of talks at the Ronald Reagan Building will kick
off the conference, followed by a cocktail reception and dinner at a D.C.
