Register now for the Science of Complexity Short Course HERE

The Santa Fe Institute and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study at George Mason University are offering a three day symposium entitled "The Science of Complexity: Understanding the Global Financial Crisis" May 16-18, 2012, at the spectacular new Founders Hall facility at the GMU Arlington campus. Through the lenses of finance, economics, complex systems, neuroeconomics, and computational social science, the symposium will explore the structure and dynamics of the 2008 financial crisis and its reverberations through time, including the current Eurozone crisis. Attendees will come away with a high-level understanding of the tools the sciences of complexity bring to an emerging view of these crises, including cutting-edge insights from the application of non-linear dynamics, social networks, systemic risk, experimental economics, and related approaches.

SFI’s REU program provides an opportunity for young scientists from many disciplines to explore what a social science perspective brings to other fields and how traditionally quantitative disciplines can contribute to the social sciences. Each REU participant works with one or more SFI faculty mentors on a specific, mutually selected projects focusing on the computational properties of complex systems with particular, but not exclusive, emphasis on the social sciences.

The Santa Fe Institute is pleased to announce the 18th annual Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science Modeling and Complexity. The workshop will bring together a group of advanced graduate students and a small faculty for an intensive two week study of computational social science modeling and complexity. The workshop will consist of lectures by faculty, special topic seminars by members of the Santa Fe Institute, and presentations of work in progress by graduate student participants. The primary goal of the summer workshop is to assist graduate students pursuing research agendas which includes a computational modeling component. A significant portion of the workshop will be devoted to analyzing and improving research being conducted by the graduate student participants.

This two-and-a-half day course is an intensive tour of the sciences of complexity, a broad set of effort that seek to explain how large-scale complex, organized, and adaptive behavior can emerge from simple interactions among myriad individuals. This course, sponsored by the Santa Fe Institute, is specifically designed for professionals, faculty, students and others who are curious to explore and apply this new transdisciplinary scientific approach. This course has no prerequisites and requires no specific math or science background.

More information about the course can be found on our wiki page.
