There is a long-standing tradition of research on complexity and self-organization in Berlin in various fields of science. Cooperation between both parts of the city started already before the fall of the Wall, eventually leading to the establishment of the Collaborative Research Program SFB 555 with Werner Ebeling as its chairman. In 2000 the first symposium "Engineering of Chemical Complexity" took place with about 50 participants. Its success prompted continuation every two years until 2008. After termination of the SFB 555 program, a new organizational framework for the ongoing activities was created by the foundation of the Berlin Center for Studies of Complex Chemical Systems. In 2011, a larger meeting was organized, so that the next conference in Warnemünde will be the number seven in a successful series. We welcome all participants heartily at this beautiful place on the Baltic Sea and are looking forward to interesting and stimulating presentations and discussions.
