The course is addressed to PhD students of the Politecnico di Milano, but also to other PhD students and researchers working in various areas of science and engineering interested in applying dynamical system theory to social sciences.
We are pleased to announce the Aalto Complex Networks Factory, combining 3 days of summer school with 2 days reserved for a workshop and presentations. The Factory will take place in Porvoo, near Helsinki, between 4th and 8th June, 2012, in the Sannäs countryside manor. If you wish to participate, please send an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. In the email please attach your updated CV, including a list of publications.
The ECCS conference series has become a major international event for people interested in interdisciplinary science and applications. The call for abstract submission for the next European Conference on Complex Systems (Brussels 3-7 September 2012) is extended until 18 April. Please see our webpage for details.
But he feels he is being made a scapegoat for the crimes his brother is accused of, his lawyer Anne-Sophie Laguens said
We select a few fellows every year, and we have them work with city governments. Instead of sending them off into the Third World, we send them into the wilds of City Hall. And there they make great apps and work with city staffers. But really what they're doing is showing what's possible with technology today.
On November 22nd – 23rd 2012 UCSIA organizes the workshop ‘Risk and Uncertainty in Changing Society’ at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. This programme will investigate how the concept of risk is analysed at the global level, the level of society and the individual level and where these three intersect. Submitted papers should be related to the topic of coping with immeasurable and uninsurable global risks from one of the following angles: global governance and decision making (macro level), societal approach (meso level), individual decision making (micro level), dealing with risk at the intersection of systems and networks. The application deadline is June 10th 2012.
We invite you to spend a few minutes in a global survey that intends to map the structure of science in an alternative way by collecting the individual appreciations of students, researchers, scholars etc. about which disciplines "fit together". The survey is completely anonymous. You decide how long the survey takes.
IMT has opened an international scouting procedure to recruit for a tenured faculty position in the following fields: Computer Science and Engineering, Large Scale Data Mining, Graph Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Machine Learning. We will consider highly qualified candidates with a strong theoretical background in computer science, physics, statistics, information science, engineering, or mathematics, with an orientation towards research on processing huge amounts of complex data in the analysis of technical, socio economic or biological systems. Candidates must have an excellent record of high-impact international publications. They should have demonstrated remarkable ability in leading research groups, as well as experience in conducting/coordinating international projects. Preference will be given to candidates performing research at the intersection between algorithms, theory and applications, and who are active in one or more of the following fields: analysis and modeling of massive data structures; graph theory and random structures; analysis and modeling of complex networks; machine learning; data mining; parallel and distributed computation. The deadline is May 15th 2012.
Fidelity Center for Applied Complexity in Boston is soliciting applications from doctoral students and post docs for Visiting Scholar positions starting between May and September, 2012, with a typical duration of 3 months. The scholarship will consist of a research project that addresses a complex business challenge such as systemic risk, large technology network management, and innovation. Scholars will work as part of research teams with internal researchers, business practitioners, and other visiting scholars.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering and Computational Science (BECS) at the Aalto University School of Science, Finland, is seeking to hire at least 4 postdoctoral researchers who would be good matches for the research fields at the department. BECS focuses on the following partially interleaved and synergistic research areas: Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics, Brain and Mind, and Computational Complex Systems. The applications are to be submitted to the Registry of Aalto University by email, no later than on 5th of March, 2012.
