The Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM-I2CAM) is a distributed experiment-based multi-institutional partnership whose purpose is to identify major new research themes in complex adaptive matter-the search for an understanding of emergent behavior in hard, soft, and living matter.

UM's ICAM's goal is to help encourage the formation of a coherent community of researchers on campus grouped around the general theme of complexity, emergence, and collective effects.
