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 and Elisa Omodei (CEU).
The main focus of the meeting is to favor new collaborations by getting to know each other while working together on a common problem. Sharing the same objective of solving a tough problem can help to know the skills of friends and colleagues and can spark new ideas, leading to a possible publication or project proposals.
Mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, social scientists, psychologists, all together mixed to achieve a common goal free from the stress that often accompanies high level research.
- Short welcome
- “Vernissage”: Every participant brings an A4 describing their expertise (e.g., a picture and caption representing their work, an abstract, etc.) and a picture of themselves in order to be recognized. In addition, there will be small project descriptions on display. These projects will be the objective of the collaborative work in the afternoon. We team up around the project we like (in front of the A4 poster), possibly around a topic that is new for us. The organizers may suggest how to build up teams of up to 5 members in case of overcrowded projects.
- In the afternoon, teams are free to wander around and work together on the project they chose.
- Optional and self-organized team work in the morning.
- 14:00 Short presentations of the results or non-results of teams. Reporting on difficulties and challenges solved is appreciated.
