Nature and aim of the committee (in short)

CSS5 is a french sectoral scientific commission of the IRD (Inst. Res. Dev.)

CSS5 members are involved in quantitative methods of modelling and observation : data collection, data processing, technique focus, modelling, simulation, archiving and data durability, computer science, mathematics, statistics, econometrics, signal physics, and other numerous developments of the kind; all beeing applied researches on complex systems of importance in and for developping countries.

The main prerogative of the scientific committee is to value and provide advices on IRD people, projects and scientific strategy given its realm of competency (access here to CSS5 institutional page).

One second aim of CSS5 (e.g., this web site) is to promote, stimulate, facilitate, enhance... quality research and communication within its field of competencies.
