Computational Complex Systems Research

Centre of Excellence in Computational Complex Systems Research
chosen by the Academy of Finland for 2006–2011

Our research focuses on understanding complex physical, biological, cognitive or societal systems and their behaviour. For this purpose we do computational analysis and modeling; and simulations based on data collected by selected experimental methods.


The research is conducted cohesively in four mutually supportive fields of Models and Methods, Engineered and Artificial Systems, Cognitive and Social Systems, and Computational Health . For more information see the Annual Report 2009. (pdf)

"COSY is at the cutting edge of international science within disciplines that – to our knowledge – are not joined in a single research group anywhere else." See COSY Scientific Advisory Board report 2009 (pdf) and Aalto Research Assessment report 2009 (pdf).
