Santa Fe Institute

President's Welcome Message

President's Welcome Video

As spring approaches, science at the Institute continues to flourish, with a number of visitors and a variety of activities, including workshops, working groups, colloquia, and seminars.  We also have had a number of exciting education and community activities.  In addition, as discussed elsewhere on the website, we have initiated a very promising collaboration with Arizona State University with the establishment of the ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems.

While we have weathered the recession, our budget remains very tight.  We are striving to maintain and strengthen our research and educational activities and are deeply appreciative of any support that you can give the Institute (see the “Support SFI” link above).

As my final months at the helm of SFI draw near -- my successor, David Krakauer, will take over as SFI President on August 1st -- I am very excited about the future of the Institute.  I invite you to view my welcome video and to explore the fascinating topics discussed and illustrated on our website.

Please stay in touch with the latest news from SFI by visiting our website regularly, or following us on Twitter or Facebook.  As always, I invite your comments at

Jeremy (Jerry) A. Sabloff
