Closing comments

What is it?

Big Complexity Day is the world’s oldest and most famous continuous scholarly meeting, preceding the Athenian colloquia by some two centuries. A workshop for research in progress on evolutionary economics and complexity, it is renowned for the intellectual quality and wit of discussion, and also for its free sandwiches and fruit platter.
