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.

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.

(While we strongly encourage you to apply online, if necessary you may send a hardcopy (do not bind these materials in any manner) via postal mail to: Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science, Attn: Lee Goodwin, Santa Fe Institute, 1399 Hyde Park Road, Santa Fe, NM 87501 USA.)

All materials (including recommendation letters) must be received by the 16 March, 2009 deadline.
