SFI heads to Seattle, WA for the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). If you're in the downtown area of Seattle between February 13th to February 16th, come by our booth and say hi. The AAAS expo is free to attend. Or, join our crew for Gameworks, Seattle on Saturday, February 15th, from 6 pm to 8 pm, to learn more about what we're up to. 

The SFI booth in the Expo features three of our outreach initiatives:


As the acknowledged thought-leader in complex systems research, SFI’s education programs train the next generation of scientists and leaders. We equip our diverse participants to recognize and solve the critical problems facing our world using the tools and methods of complex systems science. Our programs include online learning for a broad audience, research experiences for undergraduates, and advanced schools for graduate students and professionals



Mark Twain wrote "You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." InterPlanetary seeks to restore focus at a planetary scale. The InterPlanetary Project is equal parts ideas festival, open-source citizen science platform, and research program. The first of its kind to combine celebration with experimentation, and conversation with analysis, InterPlanetary seeks nothing less than a whole-planet project — beyond borders, beyond politics, beyond economics — to activate the collective intelligence of this, our first planet.

Excellent scholarship need not be prohibitively expensive. It can be nimble, quickly circulating new ideas throughout the world. It should change the way we think. The SFI Press collaborates with the vast network of researchers connected to the Santa Fe Institute to keep pace with new developments in the dynamic, boundary-spanning field of complexity science. Our volumes range from works intended for a general readership to highly technical monographs for specialized audiences and are written by respected thinkers from around the globe.
