Call for Application – 2018 Complex Systems Summer School

Now Accepting Applications

The SFI Complex Systems Summer School (CSSS) offers an intensive 4-week introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems. Lectures are taught by the faculty of the Santa Fe Institute (SFI). The school is for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals seeking to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and ask big questions about real-life complex systems.

The program consists of an intensive series of lectures, labs, and discussion sessions focusing on foundational concepts, tools, and current topics in complexity science. These include nonlinear dynamics and, scaling theory, information theory, adaptation and evolution, network structure and dynamics, adaptive computation, simulation, and other subjects. Participants collaborate in developing novel research projects throughout the 4 weeks of the program that culminate in final presentations and papers.


Applications are accepted from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and professionals in any discipline. Proficiency in English and some background in science or mathematics are required. Participants are expected to attend the entire session.

Applicants are welcome from all countries. Women and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
