'''Abstract'''.  When electrons or atoms or plants or people interact with one another or their environment the behavior of the whole is different from that of its parts. It is emergent and the gateways to emergence are the regularities that characterize emergent behavior in science and society and the organizing principles that may be able to explain it. Our 2 ½ day workshop is a first step in developing a network of researchers who focus on identifying these gateways and incorporating them into candidate models of emergent behavior, an endeavor that is central to both the ICAM and SFI research programs. The workshop has a good chance of attaining its goals if the attendees can center on digesting, and questioning, what others have to say, especially those from other fields.  Above all, our meeting should initiate new collaborations, much as the early ICAM and SFI meetings did for both institutions.

Abstract. When electrons or atoms or plants or people interact with one another or their environment the behavior of the whole is different from that of its parts. It is emergent and the gateways to emergence are the regularities that characterize emergent behavior in science and society and the organizing principles that may be able to explain it. Our 2 ½ day workshop is a first step in developing a network of researchers who focus on identifying these gateways and incorporating them into candidate models of emergent behavior, an endeavor that is central to both the ICAM and SFI research programs. The workshop has a good chance of attaining its goals if the attendees can center on digesting, and questioning, what others have to say, especially those from other fields. Above all, our meeting should initiate new collaborations, much as the early ICAM and SFI meetings did for both institutions.
