Equality, diversity and inclusion at our events

We value equality, diversity, and inclusion at all Ergodicity Economics events, and everyone is welcome. We especially encourage women and members of underrepresented minorities to attend. Attendees are invited in a spirit of curiosity, friendliness, open-mindedness, and respect.

In-person Event

Participants in the online conference may apply to join the in-person event, to be held from 21st – 23rd February 2024 at the Santa Fe Institute. It will be co-hosted by SFI external Professor Ole Peters and SFI postdoctoral Fellow Veronica Cappelli.

The program will focus on things we cannot do online, with a self-organised unconference component and social activities for 1-on-1 and small-group discussions.

Costs covered

The in-person event is free of charge, and travel and accommodation expenses will be covered.

Expressions of Interest

Capacity for the in-person event is limited. We ask that you submit a short statement (<150 words) explaining why you would like to attend. We will carefully review all submissions, and successful candidates will be notified by the end of December.

The deadline to submit your statement is 14th December 2023.
