Our mission

We are diverse to explore diversity on complex systems

The Asian Network of Complexity Scientists (ANCS) brings together scientists with diverse backgrounds in science and aims to understand complex adaptive systems by using new complexity theories, methods and techniques.

ANCS includes complexity scientists from the following countries and regions: Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and Vietnam. It started in 2017 at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, led by the efforts of Prof. Siew Ann Cheong.

With a vision to create a network for complexity science studies in the Asian region, ANCS provides a platform fostering and strengthening regional as well as international collaboration for complexity scientists.

Today, the ANCS, with its expanded structure (founding president, honorary members, founding members, members and coordinator) represents a significant potential for the promotion and dissemination of complexity science among researchers and complexity science communities.
