The CLUe server provides a working environment such that the users do not need to install all the software at their own workplace, and the produced data/ results can be accessed remotely. Moreover, new successful/interesting complexity science related models/software will be uploaded and shared through the CLUe website with the permission of the users.

New user? Please contact Rob van den Broek and provide your Solis ID to register.
