CoSyDy is short for "Complex System Dynamics" and aims to provide regular opportunities for meetings of mathematicians working in complexity and researchers "in the field". The interpretation of "complexity" is very broad and inclusive, ranging from the less formal, applied end of the spectrum on the one hand to the more technical one on the other.

Talks are aimed at established researchers as well as PhD students, who are strongly encouraged to present their own research. Every meeting normally has one or two review talks with a wider scope.

CoSyDy is funded by the LMS (Scheme 3) and was originally started by M Mobilia (Leeds) and R MacKay (Warwick). It is currently chaired by G Pruessner and coordinated by C Budd (Bath, also grant supporter), R Harris (QMUL) and R MacKay (Warwick, also grant supporter). The LMS provides funding for travel expenses of participants from the CoSyDy nodes (Bath, Leeds, Manchester, Warwick, QMUL and Imperial).
