"Paolo Budinich e i paradossi dell'avventura"

Paolo Budinich was a scientist, a dreamer, a strategist, an optimist, an initiatior. He was a sailor, too, always ready to raise anchor and set sail for new adventures. "Paolo Budinich e i paradossi dell'avventura" is the play written by Diana Hobel  that tells the story of this great man to whom the Trieste's scientific institutes owe so much. This is the SISSA SUMMER FESTIVAL 2017 third event and will take place at SISSA's amphitheater (or in the Main Hall in heavy weather). The show will start at 7 p.m. All are welcome!

SigmaPhi Prize 2017 to SISSA director STEFANO RUFFO

SISSA director Stefano Ruffo is one of the winners of the SigmaPhi Prize 2017, together with Ralf Metzler and David Mukamel. The SigmaPhi Prize was instituted by the SigmaPhi Conference to honor exceptional achievements in Statistical Physics. Stefano Ruffo is awarded "for his outstanding contributions to the statistical and dynamical behaviour of systems of nonlinear coupled oscillators and with long-range interactions".

Summer School in Enumerative Geometry

Gromov-Witten invariants, which ''count'' curves (with appropriate extra conditions) on smooth projective varieties, were introduced more than two decades ago; motivated by high energy physics, they ended up revolutionizing enumerative algebraic geometry and provided a bridge to other branches of mathematics. The Summer School in Enumerative Geometry will bring doctoral students, post-docs, and anyone interested from a review of the basic construction to current, state-of-the art research in this field.

SISSA AT VENICE's BIENNALE INNOVAZIONE 2017

“Technology innovation offer” is the title of the round table scheduled for Friday 23 June as one of the several appointments of Venice’s “Biennale innovazione 2017”. During the event, the rectors of Triveneto’s universities will present the SMACT Competence Center. Supported by these academies, the Center will be a new “ecosystem” able to create connections between companies and leading innovation actors.

Algebraic geometry and physics

SISSA will be hosting the 18th event of a series of Schools and Workshops that have been organized by the Mathematical Physics and Geometry group of the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste in conjunction with leading institutions around the world. The event will take place between 19 and 23 June in the original SISSA Building (via Beirut).

China invests in SISSA for training in excellence

High quality education, frontier research and advanced know-how are the ingredients for this cutting-edge science centre. And are internationally recognized values when we talk about SISSA. Today, Monday 12 July, a new agreement on a “high level talent training program” will be signed among the Institute in Trieste, Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) and Suzhou Institute of Systems Medicine (ISM); this document will seal the beginning of a joint PhD course aimed at recruiting young talents coming from China to study and perform scientific research at SISSA.

Il 5 per mille

Le malattie neurodegenerative, come l'Alzheimer e il Parkinson, l’autismo, le lesioni spinali sono problemi gravi che affliggono molte persone, in Italia e nel  mondo. La ricerca scientifica sta facendo grandi passi avanti nel comprenderne i meccanismi. La scienza può aiutare a migliorare sensibilmente la condizione dei malati, dando loro una speranza nel futuro.
