The Santa Fe Institute is accepting applications for the 2017 Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science (GWCSS). The application deadline is February 14, 2017.

The 2017 workshop runs from June 25-July 7 in Santa Fe.

The workshop brings together a select group of advanced graduate students and SFI faculty for an intensive two-week study of computational social science modeling and complexity. Participants pursue their own research projects as they explore questions about social dynamics through lectures, special topic seminars, and presentations of work in progress by fellow participants.

The primary goal of the summer workshop is to assist graduate students pursuing research agendas that 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.

"I can honestly say that SFI’s Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science has proven to be one of the most inspiring and useful experiences I have had in my development as an academic. Attending it has deeply enriched my research and given me an opportunity to become part of an intellectual community that I consider to be at the cutting-edge of social scientific thought. I have no doubt that the few, vibrant weeks I spent at this workshop will continue to benefit my work for years to come." - Lynette Shaw, GWCSS Alum
