Here is a page for T-shirt designs -- ideas, images, requests for assistance with implementation . . .

Social Network Map Idea

How about a graphic representing the summer school participants? There is data about all of us located on this wiki. We could take a few key areas to infer the network connections. Possible groupings include expertise/interest area (biology, social, systems engineering), geographies (Americas, EMEA, APAC), activities (hiking, board games, social), and student/business network.

Quote idea Let's put this phrase on the T-shirt: "adaptation to the edge of chaos" Hübler used quite a lot during his lab. Giovanni

3. proposal from chris So, I've always loved the front cover to King Crimson's 1981 album 'Discipline', in which they have a song caled 'Discipline' and onc called 'Indiscipline.' For anyone who knows them, King Crimson, especially in their 1990's incarnation, are the closest thing to 'complexity musicians' I know who don't work in electronic composition (multiple time signature, key signatures, double trio of musicians only occasionally hitting stable states in otherwise quasi-out of sync interactions). Anyway, the image from the discipline cover is below. Its copyrighted, dunno if that's a problem, but considering what we do, the motto '(in)discipline' hits me as interesting - isn't what we do at the border between discipline and indiscipline, or their intertwinement? It would be easy to put the word '(in)discipline' under an equally fascinating knot (particularly due to the fact that knot theory is a branch of math closely related to what we do!). Or we could even have a knot being eaten by ants, or even a bear? (I also like the idea of 'we survived the bear!' on the back . . . )
