The Interdisciplinary College (IK) is an annual, intense one-week spring school which offers a dense state-of-the-art course program in neurobiology, neural computation, cognitive science/psychology, artificial intelligence, robotics and philosophy. It is aimed at students, postgraduates and researchers from academia and industry.

By combining humanities, science and technology, the IK endeavours to intensify dialogue and connectedness between the various disciplines. Courses include up-to-date introductions to the main fields of the IK, as well as an in-depth treatment of focus topic, which is changing from year to year.

The focus theme "Wicked Problems, Complexity & Wisdom" for the Interdisciplinary College IK2013 tries to collect and present actual work on wisdom, complex problem solving, system complexity, decision support, and complex planning both theoretical and practical. The main focus would be on how to model and to explain the human capacity to create and solve complex problems from different disciplinary perspectives.
