Complexity Explorer Santa Few Institute

August 2015 Update

03 Aug 2015

New on our homepage:   Connor O'Neil describes a Complexity Panel

A thought-provoking glimpse into the inner workings of the Santa Fe Institute's Complex Systems Summer School.

Course updates:  New fall courses open for enrollment

Enrollment Open:  We are delighted to announce that Elizabeth Bradley's course Nonlinear Dynamics and David Feldman's brand new course on Fractals and Scaling are both open for enrollment.  Both courses start September 1st, 2015.  Sign up; spread the word and get a friend, colleague or family member to join in.

Tutorials: The different mathematics tutorials making up Mathematics for Complex Systems are being separated out into individual tutorials.  Once this process is finished, you will be able to track your completion of each tutorial the way you currently do with courses.  Keep an eye out for this much needed organizational overhaul in August!

Change in Subtitling Process:

Coming soon: an exciting, more streamlined method for creating subtitles for Complexity Explorer videos.  What will this mean for our dedicated translation volunteers? No more waiting for assignments; picking and choosing the videos you want to work on yourself; your subtitling minutes will be collected automatically and you will still get a t-shirt once you complete 120 minutes! We will let you know as soon as this new system is ready.

We also always need volunteers to help collect web-based syllabi, glossary terms, and other resources related to complex systems.  See to find out ways to get involved in our efforts.
