Nobel prize in 2009. Questioning simple theoretical models to prescribe universal solutions
by developing a common,

classificatory framework

to facilitate efforts toward a better
understanding of complex social-ecological systems has placed complexity in a dominant
position of Lin’s research over the last decade. What is the way forward? How do we address

are pleased to address the topic of complexity to honor Lin’s exceptional personality on the
date of her planned second visit of Slovakia. Speakers are: (1) Daniel W. Bromley,
University of Wisconsin-Madison and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin; (2) Jouni Paavola,
University of Leeds, United Kingdom; and (3) Tatiana Kluvánková-Oravská, CETIP,
