A growing community is developing around the ideas and methods in Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind of Science. NKS 2004 is the place to see what's going on, to get up to speed, and to get involved...

In June 2003-- a year after the publication of A New Kind of Science--NKS 2003 brought together a dynamic collection of individuals to learn and interact about NKS from an immense diversity of fields.

NKS 2004 will showcase how NKS is developing, and the progress being made in both the basic science and applications of NKS. Drawing from academia, industry, government, and elsewhere, NKS 2004 is sure to attract a diverse and dynamic group.
