 PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT

 Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science announces

 A NEW Ph.D. PROGRAM IN COMPUTATION, ORGANIZATIONS, AND SOCIETY

 Deadline for applications: January 5, 2004

 The Ph.D. program in Computation, Organizations, and Society (COS)
 prepares students to be tomorrow's leaders in constructing and
 evaluating technology that is particularly responsible to societal,
 business, policy, and regulatory settings.  The Ph.D. program in COS
 trains students to be leading scientists in this heavily sought area
 by providing students with in-depth training not just in computation
 but also in fundamental approaches and techniques for including
 networks of people, organizations and/or policies as additional
 constraints during development.  Students engage in research aimed
 at developing emerging technology with provable guarantees of the
 technology's appropriateness for specific social, organizational,
 and/or legal settings.  The Ph.D. program in COS builds on a
 multi-disciplinary team of world-class faculty.  It exposes students
 to traditional tenets of computer and social science weaved with
 interdisciplinary coursework, hands-on applications and cutting-edge
 research.  Research examples include privacy technology, dynamic
 social networks and e-business.

 MOTIVATION

 The past decade has seen a tremendous increase in both the breadth
 and the complexity of computational systems society has come to rely
 on. This increase in turn is giving rise to a number of new and
 challenging societal, management and policy issues, which themselves
 often call for new technological innovations. Examples include
 privacy rights management, data privacy, electronic market
 mechanisms and automated negotiation, real time estimation of social
 networks, dynamic network modeling, scalable visualization of complex
 systems, online dispute resolution, etc. Attacking these new problems
 requires profound understanding of computation and the interplay between
 the managerial, personal and policy networks in which technology
 operates. Unfortunately, current degree programs in traditional
 disciplines (e.g. computer science, sociology, economics, policy or
 management) fail to provide the kind of multi-disciplinary
 curriculum needed to train tomorrow's leaders in this emerging area.
 Today's demand for integrated expertise far exceeds supply.  As demand
 for this new breed of researchers continues to grow, it becomes
 increasingly important to offer a PhD program that fills the void.
 We are pleased to announce the first such program.


 WHO SHOULD APPLY

 Students in the Ph.D. program in Computation, Organization and
 Society (COS) are expected to come from industry, government or
 directly from undergraduate programs. Students must have an
 undergraduate and/or master level degree in any of the following
 areas: mathematics, computer science, computational organization
 theory, physics, information science/technology, biology,
 mathematics, or a mathematical/computational social science,
 government or policy program. In other words, students are expected
 to already have had a solid exposure to computation and math/science
 and to some area of the social or managerial sciences. Students
 apply to the program because of their desire to do research at the
 confluence of computer science, management, social science, law
 and/or policy. Students are expected to generally be pioneers who
 are unsatisfied with traditional degree programs and have strong
 interest in interdisciplinary research incorporating vigorous computational
 approaches.
