Our mission is to bring Complexity Science to all curious individuals. We are an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the findings, tools, philosophical paradoxes, and cultural implications associated with the study of complex systems. <Read Our Project Statement> 

What we do:

We host all kinds of events at Stanford and around the Bay Area, ranging from social ComplexiFun, to more focused intellectual pursuits. Most frequently, we host seminars by Stanford academics, visiting scholars, and those working with Complexity in non-academic settings. We also have done journal/book clubs, “quantitative trivia” nights (with Fermi estimation problems), workshops, discussion groups, a whole-day interdisciplinary symposium, and more! 

About the Stanford Complexity Group:

The Stanford Complexity Group is a graduate student-led initiative supported by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education. Complexity Science strives to unite fragmented disciplines across the sciences and humanities, and thus to contribute to a more useful perspective on complex real-world problems. If you would like to find out more about our group please send an email to , join our low-traffic mailing list, or contact us directly.
