The Economics Program at the Santa Fe Institute presents a

Graduate Workshop in Economics: Computational Modeling and Complexity

15-28 June, 1997, Santa Fe, NM

The Economics Program at the Santa Fe Institute is pleased to announce the third 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 participants.

To get a better idea about workshop activities and focus, please take a look at the 1995 and 1996 workshop pages.

Participation at the workshop will be limited to fifteen graduate students. Travel, accommodations, and living expenses for the students will be covered by the Economics Program at the Santa Fe Institute. Applicants should have completed a minimum of two years of graduate study in economics and be actively pursuing research in computational economics. 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.
