In September 2004, a cross-disciplinary satellite workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics and Complexity in Information and Communication Technology was successfully organized by the Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems for Information and Communication Technologies at Bologna, Italy. In the following year, the Centre for Chaos and Complex Networks at City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University organized a workshop of similar scale and scope in Hong Kong, and the 2005 workshop was named International Workshop on Complex Systems and Networks (IWCSN). In the subsequent years, the workshop continued to be organized, under the same title, by different groups in Vancouver, Guilin, Canberra, Bristol, Beijing, Melbourne and Minneapolis. In 2013, the workshop began to be organized under the auspice of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and has since then included IEEE in its official title. It has now become a regular annual meeting for researchers in the emerging area of complex systems and networks to exchange ideas and renew friendship.
