The Santa Fe Institute is accepting applications for the 2020 Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science (GWCSS), June 21- July 3  in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Apply by February 11, 2020.

Workshop students will:

  • Experience an intensive two-week introduction to the tools for modeling human social systems
  • Benefit from great faculty in a small group setting 
  • Develop novel research projects in complexity science


The workshop brings together a select group of advanced graduate students and SFI faculty for an intensive two-week study of computational social science, modeling, and complexity. Participants pursue their own research projects as they explore questions about social dynamics through lectures, special topic seminars, and presentations of work in progress by fellow participants.

The primary goal of the summer workshop is to assist graduate students pursuing research agendas that include 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.

All activities will be conducted in English.

"I can honestly say that SFI’s Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science has proven to be one of the most inspiring and useful experiences I have had in my development as an academic. Attending it has deeply enriched my research and given me an opportunity to become part of an intellectual community that I consider to be at the cutting-edge of social scientific thought. I have no doubt that the few, vibrant weeks I spent at this workshop will continue to benefit my work for years to come." - Lynette Shaw, GWCSS Alum
