SFU grad students are eligible to also get a graduate certificate in the Modelling of Complex Social Systems (MoCSSY) certificate program. Their invitation:

Do you want to work on problems that affect the daily lives of many people? Would you like your work to have an impact on social policy, and government decisions? Have you thought about how ideas and technology can come together to push the boundaries of knowledge?

The MoCSSy program is focused on bringing together knowledge from application domains of pressing interest, where real world challenges demand our attention, in combination with cutting edge technical expertise. Our members have come from all across the university, including criminology, health science, environmental science, geography, mathematics, statistics, and computing science; we enthusiastically welcome new contributors. Our projects to date have modelled the complex dynamics that drive street crime, obesity, homelessness, civil unrest, binge drinking, and stock market behaviour.

Our first monthly meeting of this school year will be on October 3 at 3:30 pm in ASB 10901. Please drop by if you would like to find out more, or if you have some ideas you’d like to share. Refreshments will be served.

Feel free to send any questions to mocssy@irmacs.sfu.ca.
