Winter Session 2018

Dates: January 1 - 12

Location: MIT, Cambridge, MA

  • The NECSI Winter School offers two intensive week-long courses on complexity science, modeling and networks, and data analytics. You may register for any of the weeks. If desired, arrangements for credit at a home institution may be made in advance.

  • Lab 1: January 1 CX102: Computer Programming for Complex Systems

  • Week 1: January 2-6 CX202: Building Models and Mapping Networks

  • Lab 2: January 7 CX103: Setting up for Data Analytics

  • Week 2: January 8-12 CX203: From Data to Insight Using Data Analytics

  • At the end of the courses, we expect participants to return to their home institution with tools relevant to their research and new insights for future work.

    Group Projects

  • Group projects are one of the most rewarding parts of the winter and summer courses. Participants split into project teams and put together a publication quality research project using complex systems tools learned during the week. On the final day of each week, groups present their projects. We consistently receive positive feedback about the projects.
