ICTP-SAIFR Workshop on Sociophysics: Social Phenomena from a Physics Perspective

Start time: April 19, 2020
Ends on: April 23, 2020
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Venue: IFT-UNESP

The application of techniques of statistical (and other areas of) physics to understand the dynamics of social systems is currently one of the hottest topics in the study of complex systems. The so-called Sociophysics has attracted the attention of a large number of scientists from areas such as physics, computer science, and mathematics, as well as the humanities.

ICTP-SAIFR School on Applications of Nonlinear Systems to Socio-Economic Complexity

Start time: April 14, 2020
Ends on: April 18, 2020
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Venue: IFT-UNESP

Complexity science is a new research field which focuses on complex systems with numerous components interacting with each other and their environment in many different ways. Intrinsically interdisciplinary, complex systems occur in all of nature and complexity concepts are applied in various scientific areas including the social and economic sciences.

ICTP-SAIFR School on Biological Physics: from Molecular to Macroscopic Scale

Start time: March 9, 2020
Ends on: March 14, 2020
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Venue: IFT-UNESP

Biological physics is a rapidly developing research area, attracting and challenging researchers from physical, mathematical and biological sciences. The primary purpose of this school is to provide the participants (that normally come from different research fields) with a solid physical background on fundamental theoretical, experimental and computational concepts commonly used to study soft- and bio-matter systems from the molecular to the cellular scale, and to cross-pollinate these different disciplines.
