A dramatic performance on the role of implicit and explicit bias in decision-making and the approaches the community can use to help address such bias, with particular reference to the academic context. By Lynne Walling, School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, UK.
Following the success of the Data Science Proposal for the “Dipartimenti di Eccellenza”, which got funded by MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research), SISSA will host a first workshop along this new research direction.
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.
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 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.
The aim of the conference is to bring together experts with various backgrounds, with the hope to foster an intensive exchange of ideas. Speakers from several international universities will participate in the conference. Inputs from different areas of mathematics are welcome.

The MARS 42 Summer Entrepreneurship School will be held at SISSA between 10 and 23 July 2017.
It is developed in collaboration with 42 Accelerator, a revolutionary accelerator program for early-stage and game-changing startups.
The under-representation of women in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) fields is a fact.
The meeting proposed in SISSA is a first get-together to understand the local projection, but the aim is to implement practical strategies to improve the professional experience of women.
in STEM, first at SISSA and then beyond.
The purpose of MARS42 is to provide Science PhDs and Post-Docs with the high-technical guidance and multidisciplinary mentorship required for reading Research under a new light.
From testing a new business idea to bringing a new disruptive technology to the market, this Summer Entrepreneurship School will teach you how to transform your research into a new venture and communicate yourself and your ideas to the world.
