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.

"The Santa Fe Institute Complex Systems Summer School (CSSS) is world class. Combining the latest thinking from world leading scientists, true multidisciplinary perspectives, and the passion from 50 or more of the best and brightest attendees is inspiring. With the diversity of people, country representation and perspectives, breakthrough research is established in a wide range of new areas."

"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."

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.

Education Program

This accessible three-day executive education course provides an intensive introduction to the field of complexity as it relates to Innovation and Invention. Through lectures, mini projects, exercises, and interactive discussions with prominent SFI faculty and your fellow participants, you will learn how methods and tools at the forefront of complexity science are being applied to modeling, predicting, and impacting the behavior systems across many disciplines.

This course is specifically designed for professionals, faculty, students, and others who are eager to explore and apply ideas from complexity in their own fields. No background in science or mathematics is required. We particularly encourage professionals, managers and policy-makers in business, government, and nonprofit organizations; industrial research and development staff; social work and education professionals; journalists; and university faculty and students to take part in this collaborative opportunity to learn, and apply, the latest approaches to critical problems.

Complexity and healthcare have always gone hand-in-hand, but for today’s medical and health professionals, ensuring that patients receive optimal care is only getting more challenging.

Whether you’re diagnosing symptoms, predicting -- and preventing -- the spread of disease, or building vital healthcare infrastructure, understanding complex systems has never been more important.

This accessible (no math or science background required), three-day course is designed to give healthcare professionals, faculty, policy-makers and students an intensive introduction to complex systems as they apply to health and medicine.
