This report is a product of a study of current and potential education programs at IIASA conducted by Dianne Goodwin and James Vaupel with the assistance of Olivia Carydias. The study was begun in July 1982 and completed on January 5, 1983.

The first section of this report focuses on the Young Scientists Summer Program: the current program is evaluated, several recommendations for incremental improvements are suggested, and a "Summer Roundtable" program that could either supplement or replace the current program is proposed.

The second section of this report considers opportunities for offering short courses (of one to three weeks' duration) at IIASA. Two broad options are described. IIASA could initiate a modest program of short courses based on IIASA research projects. In addition, IIASA might launch a program of East/West Colloquia.

We considered a long list of options for education at IIASA. Most were easily ruled out based on the criteria we developed or the consensus of opinion we received. This report describes the relatively few remaining options worth further consideration.
