Carnegie Mellon hosts international conference about computational and organizational analysis

June 27, 2001

PITTSBURGH-Carnegie Mellon University will host "CASOS 2001," an international conference about the latest developments in computational and mathematical social and organizational science July 5-8 on its Pittsburgh campus.

Papers will represent computer simulations (including multi-agent models), new computational and network-based analytic tools and empirical tests of computational, mathematical or logical models in the area of complex social and organizational systems. Applications apply to groups, organizations, societies, institutions, technologically-enhanced environments and political systems.

The keynote speaker will be Michael Cohen, professor of information and public policy at the University of Michigan. Cohen's research centers on the processes of learning and adaptation that go on within organizations as they adjust to their changing environments, especially the organizational effects of the advances in information technology upon organizational decision making.

The National Science Foundation's Integrated Graduate Education and Research Training program will partially sponsor the conference. Carnegie Mellon's Heinz School of Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Institute of Technology, and the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems will provide meeting facilities. Participants will include national and international doctoral student candidates, university faculty members, and industry and government representatives.
