Free

Participation on both days is required for this workshop.

The complexity of the social, biological, and physical systems often defies human intuition. Few people are prepared to work through the complexities within a discipline, much less problems that transcend disciplines. Systems thinking is a set of approaches used to describe and simulate the interactions among components of complex systems. Systems thinking can provide insights into the functioning of systems and contribute to solutions for today’s difficult challenges.

This event is for graduate students and post-docs only. Interested participants must apply to be considered for the workshop. Deadline for application is Monday, October 10.
