SFI Complex Systems Summer School 2019

9 June – 5 July 2019


The SFI Complex Systems Summer School offers an intensive 4-week introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems. The school is for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals seeking to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and ask big questions about real-life complex systems.


The program consists of an intensive series of lectures, labs, and discussions focusing on foundational concepts, tools, and current topics in complexity science. These include nonlinear dynamics, scaling theory, information theory, adaptation and evolution, networks, machine learning, agent-based models, and other topical areas and case studies. Participants collaborate in developing novel research projects throughout the four weeks of the program that culminate in final presentations and papers.


Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
Organizer: Santa Fe Institute
Registration deadline: 15 January 2019

Understanding Behaviour 2019

11-13 January 2019


Behaviour is ubiquitous, and can be studied at various levels of organization, from single molecules to populations, using tools as diverse as microscopy, field observations and mathematical modelling. The key concept of Understanding Behaviour 2019 is to showcase cutting edge behavioural research across disciplines, not limited to the confines of animal behaviour alone.

Microbial Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics

22-24 October 2018


The 2018 IGC Symposium on Microbial Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics aims to discuss recent developments in microbial eco-evolutionary dynamics research and serve as a venue for integrating the results obtained from different fields of evolution and ecology. By bringing together experts on different aspects of microbial evolution and ecology (e.g. experimental evolution, comparative genomics, ecological interactions, and theoretical biology), it hopes to facilitate the development of new research strategies to better understand the generation and maintenance of microbial diversity.
