George Kampis - Kampis György    
Under permanent construction, and badly maintained (esp. the publications are old).

I am a recycled engineer turned theoretical biologist, turned philosopher of science turned computational scientist - while maintaining a continuing interest in evolution (so I translated Darwin and won a prize). Also I am involved in cognitive science in more than one ways. These activities are less diverse than they look: complexity, evolution, self-organization, and causality are connecting keywords.

I am Professor and Head of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Eötvös University, Director of the Budapest Semester in Cognitive Science, and Fellow of Collegium Budapest (the Institute of Advanced Study). I am involved in various national and international projects which add up to another identity.

Besides my main job at ELTE, I have joined DFKI (www.dfki.de) for a partial position  and collaborate also with ITMO St. Petersburg (en.ifmo.ru).
