Please post questions you might have for our panel on June 19th. Panel includes Simon DeDeo, Mirta Galesic, Laurent Hébert-Dufresne, Christa Brelsford, and others to be announced shortly.


1. Are there any universal principles that govern the generation of power-law distributions?
2. Is complex systems science a discipline, toolset, mindset, or something else? How do you define complex systems science?
3. What evidence do we have that understanding complex systems is a task the human mind is capable of? What if we reached the point where it's fundamentally beyond our comprehension?
4. Can you briefly use complex system science to explain any socio-economic phenomenon, say migration. Am interested in analysing why people migrate; how can complex system science help me do this?
5. Interdisciplinary knowledge is valuable, but perhaps you need to be specialized to be useful to interdisciplinary work. Do you have thoughts on balancing these?
