Artificial Intelligence: Art or Science?

The field of Artificial Intelligence has now reached a stage in which it can proficiently cross-talk with hard sciences, like mathematics and theoretical physics. This two-day workshop, organised under the auspices of the National Research Council – CNR and the Ministry of Education, University and Research – MIUR, will gather a small group of scientists from different domains (mathematics, physics, statistics, computer science) who made significant contributions in this area in order to foster an open discussion.

Speakers include:

Innovation, creativity and empowerment. From theory to practice

A workshop organized in collaboration with Confindustria Venezia Giulia and Rotary Club Trieste on the best tools and behaviours to encourage creativity and innovation in oneself and in the organizations where one operates.
With Massimo Debenedetti - Corporate Vice-President for Research & Innovation at Fincantieri, Giovanni Loser - Former Global GM illycaffè and now GM Biovalleyinvestments Partner and Francesco Menegoni - CEO G&Life Spa.

Student Day 2017

SISSA awaits more than 500 students in the final two years period of high school. The Student Day is dedicated to young people who are deciding the future of their studies. Students can move independently in the School and attend seminars, conferences, interactive workshops, meetings with researchers, creating their own path in a personalized way.

Women in olfaction

WIOS represents the first international forum to unite women scientists in olfactory science with the objective of strengthening their role in the development and promotion of their representation among the leaders in the field of the chemical senses. 

From students to mathematicians

From 14 to 16 June 2017, many former students of the Percorso Formativo Comune, who have now permanent or temporary positions in different international universities, institutions and companies, will join SISSA and the University of Trieste to celebrate ten years of the Master program. The conference will consist of some scientific presentations by former students, together with two round tables about the relation between Mathematics and Academia, and the World of Employment.
