Below is an announcement for the the Santa Fe Institute's workshop on
computational modeling. I attended this two summers ago and had an
incredible time. Your fellow students will be extremely bright and
motivated, your instructors will give you unique skills and insights,
and you will probably even meet a few Noble Prize winners. Santa Fe
is a beautiful place to spend two weeks, even if you do end up
working a lot of very late nights.
I highly recommend this opportunity.
Eighth Annual Santa Fe Institute Graduate Workshop in
Computational Modeling and Complexity
14-27 July, 2002, Santa Fe, NM
The Santa Fe Institute Economics Program is pleased to
announce the eighth annual Graduate Workshop in Economics.
The workshop will bring together a group of advanced
graduate students and a small faculty for an intensive two
week study of computational economics. 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 component. A significant portion of the
workshop will be devoted to analyzing and improving
research being conducted by the graduate student
To get a better idea about workshop activities and focus,
please go to http://zia.hss.cmu.edu and look at the
1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 workshop pages.
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.
Applicants ideally should have completed a minimum of two
years of graduate study in economics and be actively
pursuing research in computational economics (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 references, and a one page outline of
a current or proposed research project in computational
economics. Preference will be given to applicants who best
demonstrate the ability to successfully complete research
in the area of computational economics.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
Completed applications should be sent to Scott E. Page at
the Michigan address below.
The application deadline is 12 April, 2002.
