Chance encounters at SFI have spun off new fields that are now approaching the mainstream. Today’s reckless idea, tea-time conversation, or dry-erase diagram could become tomorrow’s news.

To keep up with our pioneering research, please subscribe to our monthly research news updates, podcast, and social media channels (Twitter: @sfiscience), or email to request home delivery of our quarterly printed newsletter.

While most of our on-site events are closed to the public, members of the media who wish to attend a scientific workshop or working group can request permission through our media center. Many of our lunchtime seminars for scientists are recorded and available on our YouTube channel.

We encourage complexity enthusiasts of all stripes to join us for our free community lecture series in Santa Fe, NM, for our annual InterPlanetary Festival  and for select online offerings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I think the next century will be the century of complexity.” — Stephen Hawking, in a January 2000 interview with The Mercury News
