Symposium “IRIS 2015”

Friday, July 10th 2015
Campus Adlershof of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Erwin Schrödinger-Zentrum, Room 0'119, Rudower Chaussee 26, 12489 Berlin, Germany

On 10 July 2015, five years after its opening, the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences IRIS Adlershof, will host the one-day symposium IRIS 2015. The purpose of the symposium is to explore ideas how to further develop IRIS. For instance, a physicist, a mathematician and computer scientist will discuss opportunities Mathematical Physics of Complex Systems may offer for IRIS Adlershof. Other topics covered in the symposium include further developments in the research field of Hybrid Systems, its relations to Analytical Sciences and Biological Physics, as well as interactions between Cultural Studies and Natural Sciences.
The symposium will end with a BBQ at Tim’s Canadian Deli Adlershof.
