General Description

An intensive introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the sciences and social sciences. Open to students from all countries. Students are expected to attend the school for the full four weeks and to participate in group or individual projects.

Location: June 8 to July 5, 2003, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Held at the campus of St. John's College. Administered by the Santa Fe Institute.

Director: Jonathan Shapiro, University of Manchester
