CAPS 2017 is the first International Conference on Complexity-Based Analytics and Policies for Social Good. This is a cross-disciplinary conference for research in which the tools of Complex Systems and/or Agent Based Modeling are used to examine a wide range of policies and procedures that promote, emphasize, contribute to, improve, or otherwise positively affect social good. This scope includes new definitions and measures of social good, methodologies for tracking impacts and trends, data sets, analytical methods, actors and populations, dynamic models, or social-level analysis.
