On June 9 and 10, 2022, scientists from Central European University and CSH will meet at the Hub to strengthen friendship and collaborations. The get-together is in the tradition of the "crazy workshop" series.   (What is a crazy workshop? "Is an idea too crazy to be pursued, or could its exploration lead to fascinating scientific insight? Has anyone ever thought of exploring the same sudden brainwave that I had? ...")   The event is organized by Vito D.P. Servedio…

This talk will be presented by Chaitanya Gokhale from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön (Germany).   If you would like to attend, please send us an email.   Title: "The power of belief—How collective narratives catalyse cooperation"     Abstract:   Humans invest in fantastic stories—mythologies. Recent evolutionary theories suggest that cultural selection may favour moralising stories that motivate prosocial behaviours. A key challenge is to explain the emergence of mythologies that lack explicit moral exemplars or directives. Here, we resolve…

CSH Workshop: “Move or Perish—Scientific trajectories, inclusion, and inequality, and their consequences for transformative science”

Jun 16, 2022Jun 17, 2022

This workshop, organized by CSH researchers Márcia Ferreira and Fariba Karimi, will take place at the Complexity Science Hub on June 16 and 17.   Abstract: Scientific human capital mobility is crucial for understanding how ideas and knowledge circulate in an increasingly globalized academic environment. This phenomenon has mainly been studied in terms of the movement of researchers between geographical locations. Additionally, mobility can be defined as topical mobility (i.e., changes in individuals' research interests) and institutional mobility (i.e., affiliation…

CSH intern Emanuele Calò will present his project results on Friday, June 24 at 3 pm in room 201.   Title: “Economic Complexity Algorithms in Complex Networks: Applications to Economics and Ecology”   Abstract: Economic Complexity (EC) algorithms estimate the fitness and complexity of the nodes of bipartite networks. Typical examples are the network of countries and their exported products or the network of countries and the fields of scientific production. These algorithms cease to work as soon as the network is not bipartite anymore,…
