Summer School in Social Complexity
Instituto de Sistemas Complejos de Valparaíso
From the 23rd to the 27th of January, 2012, the Instituto de Sistemas Complejos de Valparaíso (ISCV) will host its 10th Complex Systems Summer School. The focus of this year will be Social Complexity. Outstanding academics from Chile and abroad will be lecturing during this vibrant event.
The Summer School is expected to bring together students with a vocation for research in disciplines like physics, ecology or evolutionary biology, and with an interest in using their conceptual and analytical background to address social problems. We also expect to appeal social scientists interested in developing their research in interdisciplinary teams that include representatives of the natural sciences.
In this Summer School the students
Starting from this premise, we hope to promote the development of interdisciplinary research projects in social complexity and strengthen the relationship between researchers and the private/public sector intending to address problems of the social reality relevant for the environment of the ISCV.
Post-graduate students or with a post-graduate degree in natural sciences, e.g. engineering, biology, physics or mathematics; and social sciences, e.g. anthropology, sociology or political science.
knowledge of programming languages and passive knowledge of English is desirable.
Send pre-requisites, corresponding certificates and CV to [email protected] together with a statement of your current research interests and comments about why you wish to attend the school (suggested length: one to two pages) addressed to:
