This year’s topic is: CONNECT! Do networks matter?

290416, IST Austria campus, Klosterneuburg

What do communities, neurons, nodes and genes have in common? Why do complex phenomena emerge upon formation of connections? Networks are everywhere, but do we understand them?

For this one-day meeting leading scientists from Physics, Biology, Neuroscience, Mathematics and Computer Science will discuss the impact of networks on their respective field. This year's Young Scientist Symposium will provide a multidisciplinary view on network properties and phenomena. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts and to broaden their horizon with newly arising questions.
