IST Austria Young Scientist Symposium 2015

NEWS: Call for short videos showing self-organization!

Self-organization terms the emergence of globally structured behavior from simple local interactions. Self-organizatory phenomena occur throughout a broad range of systems, ranging from fluid dynamics, or molecular self-assembly (leading to the "origins of life") in the microscopic world, to macroscopic phenomena such as collective behavior of insects or earthquake interactions. Moreover, the understanding of self-organizatory mechanisms has very concrete applications in designing robotic systems or analysis of traffic jams.

The post-docs and students of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria cordially invite you to the 4th Young Scientist Symposium entitled:


on Friday May 8, 2015, 9am to 6pm
