After an initial grant from the Volkswagen Foundation for 1984-1988, BiBoS has been relying on various sources of funding. At this time (2003), Bielefeld University provides a modest but crucial "seed money" support; the overwhelming part of BiBoS operations is based on projects and partnership programs, from individual fellowships and other resources of guest researchers.

The papers published in scientific journals or proceedings within the Research Center BiBoS are listed in the category 'Preprints'.

Various international meetings have been organized under the auspices of BiBoS:

Modeling of Complex Systems: New perspectives in mathematics, physics and biology, ZiF, June 2002

The Direction of Time: The Role of Reversibility and Irreversiblity in the Study of Nature, ZiF, January 2002

Percolation Phenomena, Basic Techniques and Applications, ZiF, May 2001

Dynn 2000: Dynamical Neural Networks and Applications, ZiF, November 2000

Complexity Research Year at ZiF 2000- 2001

New Trends in Potential Theory and Applications, ZiF, March 2001

Fractal Objects in Mathematics and Natural Science, ZiF, March 2000

Scientific competence is of course primarily reflected in the research publications. It - and its recognition - can also be gauged by the following activities:
