The Science of Complexity: Understanding the Global Financial Crisis

Business-oriented symposium by interesting combination of two 'complexity' institutions: 

The time-honored formulas of mainstream economics no longer capture the complex dynamics of today's financial markets. This three-day symposium offers a view of the recent global financial crises from a new perspective—that of complexity science. Sponsored by two leading complexity research institutes, the symposium will feature several of the world's most prominent complex systems thinkers. These experts will offer insights from non-linear dynamics, social networks, systemic risk, experimental economics, computational social science, and other areas that are vital not only to understand the current crises but to develop policies that address the underlying causes.

The program is open to any interested participants, but is particularly designed for professionals in government, business, and the non-profit sectors. 

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