The ability to mathematically model complex systems has become a prerequisite to successful science in any field. Writing a simulation is not enough; career scientists today should be able to analyze results, recognize statistical regularities, formulate conjectures, and pursue possible proofs about why these conjectures are true. This hands-on summer program will give you a toolbox for understanding and using mathematical modeling in complex systems and your discipline.

"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."

Education Program

Economic growth and human development are properties of urbanizing human societies. But cities also concentrate most of the world’s human population and the strongest challenges to local and global sustainability, related to increased resource consumption, pollution, wastes, and many forms of impact on biodiversity, both within and beyond urban areas. Thus, it is often said that the battle for sustainable development will be won or lost in cities.
