Giulio Regeni was a scientist like us. We hope his cruel death may serve to focus our attention on the need to respect human rights.
SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features about 65 professors, approximately a 100 post-docs and 250 PhD students. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste.
The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.
“NatureTECH: il sottile confine fra biologico e biotecnologico” is the title of the 7th edition of the Festival for Scientific Research in Trieste. SISSA will be present with a stand in Piazza Unità and other activities in the city centre.

Asimina Arvanitaki of the Perimeter Institute, Canada, will show how black holes or precision experiments may provide us with evidence on the presence of new physics.
SISSA Colloquia are part of the celebration of the School's 40th Anniversary. They are intended as a moment of interdisciplinary exchange and a way to reaffirm the sense of belonging to our community.
A rich programme of acitivities for people of all ages: hands-on experiments, meetings, exhibitions, science games and much more in Piazza Unità and around the city centre. Visit our stand and check out the programme in due course to meet SISSA researchers. For more information on the local edition see: http://www.sharper-night.it/
The European Researchers' Nights have been organised every September since 2005. In 2018 events will take place in over 340 cities across Europe and in neighbouring countries.
In the framework of the agreement signed with Fincantieri SpA, SISSA announces a selection for the conferment of a fellowship to follow a PhD course. The title of the project is “Parametric structural design of cruise ships with the application of reduced order methods for computational efficiency”.
The investigation will focus on improving the tools calculating the optimal dimensions of the internal parts of cruise ships manufactured by the company.
The MIT-FVG Project, supporting collaborations between MIT faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts at SISSA, as well as at the University of Udine and at the University of Trieste is open for its second call.
It was launched in summer 2017 for the first time with funding provided by the Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia, now recently renewed (July 13, 2018).
The maximum award is $25,000.
On Thursday 5 July 5 2018, the SIAM SISSA Colloquia 2018 will take place at SISSA room 128, starting from 5 pm.
The scheduled speakers are Professor Jacopo Stoppa with a talk entitled "Recent advances in complex differential geometry" and Prof. Nicola Gigli who will discuss "Spaces with Ricci curvature bounded from below: state of the art and future challanges".
