Education Program

All day


Following the model of Complex Systems Summer School (CSSS) organized annually at Santa Fe, the India Complex Systems Winter School will be held at IISER Mohali, India. The Complex Systems Winter School offers an intensive two-week introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the sciences and social sciences. The school is for participants who seek background and hands-on experience to help them prepare to conduct interdisciplinary research in areas related to complex systems.
The program consists of an intensive series of lectures, laboratories, and discussion sessions focusing on foundational ideas, tools, and current topics in complex systems research. These include nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation, scaling theory, information theory and computation theory, adaptation and evolution, network structure and dynamics, adaptive computation techniques, computer modeling tools and specific applications of these core topics to various disciplines.

All activities will be conducted in English. Participants are expected to attend the entire session.  Applicants are welcome from all countries. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Enrollment is limited.
