Il giornalismo è entrato nell'era dei dati: statistiche, data mining, infografiche richiedono competenze che oggi devono fare parte del curriculum del reporter. La preparazione richiesta per queste attività non sempre però entra nella formazione classica del giornalista, per questo motivo il Master in Comunicazione della Scienza della SISSA di Trieste organizza la Scuola Estiva di Data Journalism, che si terrà a Trieste dal 17 al 19 settembre 2014.
Only few days left to sign up to the JCOM Masterclasses. Four courses aimed at scientists, cultural managers, public sector and education professionals, architects, designers, journalists, museum workers and other specialists dealing with scientific/technological communication. These are the JCOM Masterclasses, top-level international training courses held by academics and professionals selected from among the greatest experts in the field.
Quattro tra i maggiori istituti del Friuli Venezia Giulia danno il via al nuovo corso di PhD JuMBO, iniziativa di eccellenza e particolarmente innovativa nell'ambito della Biologia Molecolare.
On May 6, the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste will be paying tribute to the physicist and SISSA founder Paolo Budinich, who died last November, by dedicating the School's Main Lecture Hall to him. The ceremony will take place at 12 noon.
Movement and the ability to divide are two fundamental traits of living cells. The origin of these abilities could rely on very simple physical mechanisms, which have been simulated by scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste in a study just published in Physical Review Letters.
A map of how genes vary in biological tissues: a huge project that required the collaboration of dozens of laboratories worldwide, including the Neurogenomics Laboratory of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste.
This is the result of a study just published in Nature by the FANTOM consortium (and signed by over two hundred authors). It is only the first of a series of more specific papers that will focus on how the single genes work in each type of tissue.
For astrophysicists neutron stars are extremely complex astronomical objects. Research conducted with the collaboration of SISSA and published in the journal Physical Review Letters demonstrates that in certain respects these stars can instead be described very simply and that they show similarities with black holes.
Researchers at SISSA are developing fast and efficient numerical methods to study the behaviour of molecules and materials. The latest work by Angelo Rosa, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, simulated the behaviour of concentrated solutions of "circular" polymers, providing a far more accurate description of the behaviour of these materials than available in the past.
