All day


Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

The Santa Fe Institute and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study at George Mason University are offering a three day symposium entitled "The Science of Complexity: Understanding the Global Financial Crisis" May 16-18, 2012, at the spectacular new Founders Hall facility at the GMU Arlington campus. Through the lenses of finance, economics, complex systems, neuroeconomics, and computational social science, the symposium will explore the structure and dynamics of the 2008 financial crisis and its reverberations through time, including the current Eurozone crisis. Attendees will come away with a high-level understanding of the tools the sciences of complexity bring to an emerging view of these crises, including cutting-edge insights from the application of non-linear dynamics, social networks, systemic risk, experimental economics, and related approaches.
