*Workshop* on 150 Years after **Darwin**:
 From Molecular Evolution to Language

Palma de Mallorca, November 23-27, 2009

Scientific organizers:
Jose A. Cuesta (Universidad Carlos III, Madrid, Spain)
Susanna C. Manrubia (Centro de Astrobiologa, INTA-CSIC, Madrid, Spain)
Alan J. McKane (University of Manchester, UK)

This workshop:
is organized within the framework of the Joint Workshop Program
*Trends in Complex Systems*
between the MPIPKS (Max-Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex 
Dresden, Germany) and the IFISC (Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics
and Complex Systems, Palma de Mallorca, Spain).

Two hundred years since the birth of Charles Darwin and a hundred and 
fifty years since the publication of
On the Origin of Species, the theory of evolution is now a conceptual 
cornerstone in a wide number of areas
of research outside its original field of application. Evolutionary 
biologists, linguists, physicists, economists,
and social scientists nowadays use the notions of evolution and 
adaptation in their research. In each of those
areas, the mechanisms behind the relevant dynamics (stochastic 
appearance of mutants, cultural innovations
or social strategies, inheritance or spread of a new variant, and 
selection through competition) take a specific
form that, nonetheless, shapes the structure and organisation of each 
system in a way that can be recognised
as arising from evolutionary dynamics in its broadest sense. These 
anniversaries seem an ideal opportunity
to bring together researchers from the variety of disciplines which now 
use the evolutionary paradigm, to
review progress, learn from each other and initiate new collaborations.
