Co-sponsored by Santa Fe Institute and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study at George Mason University

May 16-18, 2012, at the new Founders Hall facility at the GMU Arlington, VA campus.

Much of the thinking underlying mainstream economics doesn't capture the complex dynamics present in today's financial system.  This 3-day symposium offers an introduction to the science of complexity and the new insights it provides into the 2008 financial crisis, including the Eurozone crisis. New approaches in the areas of non-linear dynamical systems, systemic risk, behavioral finance, computational economics, and network science will be examined.

Participants will come away with a deeper knowledge of the application of complex adaptive thinking to the analysis of global economic and financial systems.
