Algebraic geometry and physics

SISSA will be hosting the 18th event of a series of Schools and Workshops that have been organized by the Mathematical Physics and Geometry group of the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste in conjunction with leading institutions around the world. The event will take place between 19 and 23 June in the original SISSA Building (via Beirut).

Joyce’s quark

Physics will be opening on Friday 16 June Bloomsday 2017, the event that, since several years, Trieste dedicates to James Joyce and his unforgettable character Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of his famous novel Ulysses. Giuseppe Mussardo, Professor of Theoretical Physics and Director of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory at SISSA, will start the programme with a conference entitled “The colour and the taste of quarks”.

Photography: over and beyond

Photography beyond photography, in other words when taking a picture means creating some kind of artwork, engaging techniques, imagination, creativity, forcing the photographer to interact with his/her own photos. The last appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” will focus on the key approaches to “artistic” photography, such as Light Painting, HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging), Infrared Photography and more.

The seminar will take place on Thursday 15 June in room 128-129, I floor, starting from 6.00 pm.

China invests in SISSA for training in excellence

High quality education, frontier research and advanced know-how are the ingredients for this cutting-edge science centre. And are internationally recognized values when we talk about SISSA. Today, Monday 12 July, a new agreement on a “high level talent training program” will be signed among the Institute in Trieste, Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) and Suzhou Institute of Systems Medicine (ISM); this document will seal the beginning of a joint PhD course aimed at recruiting young talents coming from China to study and perform scientific research at SISSA.

Il 5 per mille

Le malattie neurodegenerative, come l'Alzheimer e il Parkinson, l’autismo, le lesioni spinali sono problemi gravi che affliggono molte persone, in Italia e nel  mondo. La ricerca scientifica sta facendo grandi passi avanti nel comprenderne i meccanismi. La scienza può aiutare a migliorare sensibilmente la condizione dei malati, dando loro una speranza nel futuro.

Around the streets

New appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” by Giuseppe Mussardo and Andrea Tomicich.

The event will focus on street photography, where images are capable of capturing a mood or a specific moment that words could not easily describe. It will analyse the work of photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Brassaï, Vivian Maier, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lee Friedlander. 

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.

Geometric analysis on smooth and non-smooth spaces

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.
