This week’s brown bag lecture at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) features Claudio Cioffi-Revilla, director of the new Center for Social Complexity, speaking on “The Third Way of Doing Science.”

Cioffi Revilla, who comes to George Mason from the University of Colorado, is a professor of computational social sciences and is jointly appointed to the Department of Public and International Affairs and the School of Computational Sciences. He is founder of the Center for Social Complexity, which seeks to advance the knowledge frontiers of social science by applying and developing computational and interdisciplinary approaches that yield new insights into the fundamental nature of social phenomena at all levels of complexity.

The discussion is part of ICAR’s series of informal lectures on the research and practice of conflict resolution and is held in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax. For more information, call (703) 993-1300.
