Throughout the first year, a seminar series is held in which the students present and discuss recent findings and results reported in the scientific literature. Complex systems science is a large and very heterogeneous research field. When preparing a presentation in the Complex systems seminar course, the students have an opportunity to "dig a little deeper" into a specific area that they find interesting. The students in the class will during the class be listening to 40-50 seminars on different topics, mostly given by their friends in the class but also by the teachers in the program and other guest lecturers. Overall this gives a more fair coverage of complex systems as a field than is possible in the regular classes. In addition the class offers training in a very central skill: oral presentation.

Teacher: Claes Andersson
