GAeL, Géométrie Algébrique en Liberté, is a conference organised by and for researchers in Algebraic Geometry at the beginning of their scientific career. The conference gives PhD students and post-docs the opportunity to lecture, often for the first time, in front of an international audience. In addition, selected international experts deliver mini-courses on topics at the cutting-edge of important new developments in Algebraic Geometry. This year the conference will be held in Trieste, at the International School for Advanced Studies, SISSA (June 23-27, 2014).

Anche quest'anno si è svolto alla SISSA il "Progetto teatro", promosso dalla scuola media Guido Corsi di Trieste. "La scomparsa di Majorana", spettacolo tratto dal testo di Leonardo Sciascia, è stato rappresentato dagli studenti della scuola media con l'aiuto di alcuni giovani ricercatori della SISSA, il 21 febbraio, nell'Aula Magna della Scuola.
Una borsa di studio da 3mila euro ogni anno per i prossimi tre anni: questo il contributo offerto dal Comune di Trieste al Master in Comunicazione della Scienza (MCS) "Franco Prattico" della Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA). Un'azione importante per sostenere la diffusione del sapere scientifico e la Trieste scientifica.
A group of physicists that includes scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste have shown how to obtain a particular case of a physical effect – so far never observed in reality – whose studies have earned a Nobel Prize. The scientists have also observed the response of the material subject to such effect. These observations will provide precious indications to the experimental physicists in order to verify, in the future, their theory.
Words and gestures are – partially – connected inside the brain. It is the result of a study carried out also by, among others, the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, which sheds light on a debate that has been engaging the scientific community for many years: is cognition "incorporated" (that is, depends on our body) or not? According to Raffaella Rumiati and her team the answer is yes, it is, but only under certain circumstances.
A new research coordinated by International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Turin, studies the "code" used by the brain to categorize the objects we see and sheds light on a scientific debate: when, in the process of the brain analysis of visual stimulus, does "shape become meaning"?
Black holes may be less simple and "clean" than how the most authoritative theoretical model describes them. This is what a group of researchers based at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, and IST, Lisbon, claims in a new article appeared in Physical Review Letters.
According to the scientists' calculations, these celestial bodies may actually have "hair".
