This is the second CSSS to be held in Chile. The school is open to students from all countries. Participants are expected to attend for the full 11 days.

The school consists of a series of lectures  by some of the world's
top researchers in complex systems, people who have helped define the
field and are pushing scientific boundaries. Students must be
willing to rigorously explore foundational theories, mathematical
tools, and their relationship to topics currently at the frontier of
Complex System Science.  A strong academic record is a prerequisite;
all lectures will be in English. Enrollment is limited to 20 selected
students.

No tuition is charged. Accommodations and meals are provided and
support for travel may also be available. Please use the Financial Request Form in the application to notify us if you are requesting travel support.
