Meeting Description:

15th Annual Santa Fe Institute Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science
Modeling and Complexity

Santa Fe, NM
21 June - 4 July, 2009

The Santa Fe Institute is pleased to announce the 15th annual Graduate Workshop
in Computational Social Science Modeling and Complexity. The workshop will bring
together a group of advanced graduate students and a small faculty for an
intensive two week study of computational social science modeling and
complexity. The workshop will consist of lectures by faculty, special topic
seminars by members of the Santa Fe Institute, and presentations of work in
progress by graduate student participants.

The primary goal of the summer workshop is to assist graduate students pursuing
research agendas which include a computational modeling component. A significant
portion of the workshop will be devoted to analyzing and improving research
being conducted by the graduate student participants.

To get a better idea about workshop activities and focus, please take a look at
the 1995-2008 workshop pages available at:


And the book Complex Adaptive Systems:

An Introduction to Computational Models of Social Life, Miller and Page,
Princeton University Press, 2007.

Participation at the workshop will be limited to fifteen graduate students.
Student travel (up to a reasonable limit), accommodations, and living expenses
will be supported by the workshop.

To Apply:

Applicants ideally should have completed a minimum of two years of graduate
study in economics or other social science fields and be actively pursuing
research in computational social science (highly qualified applicants who do not
meet these exact criteria will also be considered). Interested students should
submit a recent curriculum vitae, at least one letter of recommendation, two
other references, and a one page outline of a current or proposed research
project in computational social sciences. Preference will be given to applicants
who best demonstrate the ability to successfully complete research in this area.

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

The application deadline is 16 March, 2009.

Completed applications should be submitted online to:

Linguistics students are encouraged to apply if they have an interest in
modeling either social aspects of linguistics or some kind of individualistic,
agent-based model.
