The Santa Fe Institute, together with five European complexity science institutions, will offer Ph.D. students a two-week, residential advanced training opportunity focused on the disintegration of society. The Complexity–GAINs International Summer School will focus on topics that are critical to our world today, including democracy, justice, inequality, sustainability, and more.
Ph.D. students from any of the natural and social sciences, mathematics, and computation are welcome to apply. Students need not be working in the social sciences to benefit from the program; students wishing to explore new research directions or applications of quantitative skills from other disciplines will find the curriculum valuable. There is no tuition, and the program aims to be no- or low-cost to all applicants who are accepted. Applications are due by January 18, 2022, and the program will be held July 4-15, 2022.

Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline —including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others — and the study of “network science” has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.
The school “Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications” offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.

NetSci-X, the Network Science Society‘s signature winter conference, will visit Porto, Portugal in 2022. Bringing together leading researchers and innovators, NetSci-X 2022 will connect the Portuguese culture of innovation and hospitality with the novel perspectives of Network Science.
NetSci-X extends the popular NetSci conference series to provide an additional forum for a growing community of academics and practitioners working on networks. This is the first NetSci conference held in Portugal. The conference fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design.

The Winter Workshop on Complex Systems is a one-week workshop where young researchers from all over the world gather together for discussing about complex systems.
The primary focus of the workshop is for participants to engage into novel research projects.
This is the 7th edition of the WWCS and it will be held in East of France from January 24th to January 28th 2022. Previously it was held in Brussels, Madrid, Petnica, Utrecht, Zakopane, and Charmey.
