2007 NKS Summer School
The fifth annual NKS Summer School begins in just a couple months, and we'll be accepting applications through April 23. The three-week, tuition-free program--June 25 to July 13 at the University of Vermont--is a unique opportunity to get involved with original research at the frontiers of science using Mathematica and Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind of Science. http://www.wolframscience.com/summerschool We are looking for highly motivated individuals who want to advance their careers in an NKS direction. Our participants come from many diverse backgrounds, but share a common passion to discover and explore cutting-edge ideas. Over the past four years, they have included graduate students, undergraduates, professors, industry professional, artists, and even a few exceptional high-school students. If accepted, you will work directly with others in the NKS community--including Stephen Wolfram and a staff of instructors who have made significant contributions to NKS--on your own original project that could develop into published papers or the foundations for your thesis. You may also be eligible for college course credit through the University of Vermont. Take a look at the lecture notes from previous years to get a sense of what topics will be covered: http://www.wolframscience.com/summerschool/materials If you're serious about getting involved with similarly innovative ideas at the core of NKS, you should consider applying as soon as possible. Only a few more spots remain.

The NKS 2007 Wolfram Science Conference (http://www.wolframscience.com/nks2007) begins immediately after the NKS Summer School, July 13-15 at the University of Vermont. All Summer School attendees will receive complimentary passes and may even have an opportunity to showcase some of their work.
