IIASA Day 2012

©IIASAAfter two days of high-level discourse in the Hofburg, the former imperial seat of the Habsburg dynasty, the party will move to the countryside. On this third day of the conference (26 October 2012), IIASA will open its doors to the institute’s large and growing international family. IIASA Day 2012 will be a day of celebration, reflection, and exchange. The interactive event will connect conference participants and IIASA researchers in a relaxed setting that encourages two-way discussions and the cross-pollination of ideas. Attendees will be able to meet some of the scientists at IIASA who on a daily basis are addressing the grand challenges of the 21st century and to learn how they are actually doing it.

A diverse offering of parallel sessions will feature IIASA’s cutting-edge research and how it is making a positive impact on the world. Select external speakers will complement IIASA scientists in these sessions, which will highlight, in particular, the power of systems analysis and the insights that can be gained through integrative, interdisciplinary research. Roundtable discussions will then give conference participants the opportunity to dive even deeper into the issues raised during the previous days’ meetings – this time, however, in more intimate, “Socratic” settings (see program for IIASA Day 2012).

Further possibilities for attendees to participate in IIASA Day 2012 include a poster session on IIASA’s multi-disciplinary research activities, including ongoing projects at the institute as well as those carried out by external collaborators. Early-stage scientists, former and current YSSPs, and former visiting scholars are especially encouraged to attend. Please see the Call for Abstracts for more information. Additionally, multi-media exhibits will enable IIASA scientists to introduce their advanced modeling tools and approaches in an interactive, hands-on way.

All members of the IIASA family, both near and far, are invited to celebrate the institute’s 40th anniversary in the idyllic setting of Schloss Laxenburg and its beautiful surroundings. Please mark your calendars for 26 October 2012.
