CSAAW - Complex Systems Advanced Academic Workshop
CSAAW (pronounced "see-saw") is an ongoing interdisciplinary
research forum that receives funding from
Rackham via its RIW
program as well as the Center for Study of Complex Systems.
The goal of CSAAW is to support graduate students interested
in complex systems research, especially those working towards
writing a dissertation that involves ideas from many disciplines
as well as tools used to study complex systems.
Through our regular meetings, students discuss their own
work and receive feedback from other students, faculty and researchers.
For some meetings, students present "tutorials" on various
complex systems related topics or methodology.
Other meetings consist of talks by and discussions with
invited speakers who are active in complex systems research.
These speakers, many of whom are recent graduates,
discuss their own work in addition to providing advice on how to successfully
complete a complex systems (interdisciplinary) disseration,
and how to navigate through the post-graduate job market.

The wiki has information about the research interests of current
participants, links to talks from previous meetings, and is a
great place to begin exploring a wide variety of topics in complex systems.
