In recent years there has been a growing interest in the interface between physics and social science centred on social complexity (witness a recent EPSRC call for research proposals). This is an area that should appeal to a new cohort of physics students who might be interested in areas of physics more immediately relevant to social issues.
The programme brings together academics from Sociology and from Physics to describe their research programmes with policy advisors who will discuss applications. The meeting will end with a discussion of the potential role of social physics in undergraduate programmes. The meeting will be of interest to those responsible for designing research-led curricula in physics.
