About this Conference:
The aim of this event is to bring alumni together who have attended SFI's Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science over the past 25 years to present their current research and have an opportunity for further networking.

About SFI:
The Santa Fe Institute (SFI) is the leader in complex systems research. SFI was established by an interdisciplinary group of intellectual leaders and renegades, including Nobel Laureates Murray Gell-Mann (Physics), Kenneth Arrow (Economics), and Phil Anderson (Physics). Today SFI is a nonprofit research institute with a notable reputation within academia. Some examples of techniques and theories pursued at SFI include agent-based modeling, genetic algorithms, network theory, evolutionary game theory, nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics, scaling theory, the theory of collective computation, information theory, and maximum entropy methods. ASU's transformative president Michael Crow has called SFI "a modern version of Plato's Academy." Rolling Stone Magazine called the SFI "a sort of Justice League of renegade geeks, where teams of scientists from disparate fields study the Big Questions." Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Cormac McCarthy comments on the Institute can be found here.
