This account surveys some of the major developments in complexity research and proposes a number of questions and issues for future research. The topics are organized into three areas. Under theory, we consider self-organisation, emergence, criticality, connectivity, as well as the paradigm of natural computation. Applications include several areas of science and technology where complexity plays a prominent part such as development, evolution, and global information systems. Finally, under practice, we consider some of the issues involved in trying to develop a coherent methodology for dealing with complexity.
