After the success of previous editions, we are pleased to announce the 5th Edition of the World Conference on Complex Systems, WCCS24. This conference will be organized by the “Faculty of Science and Technology of Mohammadia (FSTM), affiliated with Hassan II University of Casablanca” and the “ Moroccan Society of Interdisciplinary Sciences” , in partnership with “IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS)”, “International Federation for Systems Research (IFSR)” and “International Academy for Systems and Cybernetic Sciences (IASCYS)” . WCCS24 will take place from November 11 to 14, 2024, in Casablanca, Morocco

WCCS24 will provide an international forum for researchers and Ph.D. students to present recent research results, address new challenges, and discuss emerging trends in the field of complex systems and interdisciplinary science.

The conference aims to foster a debate on the most relevant methodologies and approaches for understanding, modeling, simulating, predicting, evaluating, and mastering societal, ecological, biological, and engineered complex systems..
