The workshop “Young Researchers at the Crossroads” will take place at IFISC, Mallorca (Spain), 2-4 June 2017, on occasion of the 10th anniversary of IFISC (Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems, UIB-CSIC). This event will coincide with the conference “Crossroads in Complex Systems” (5-8 June 2017), which will be held just after the workshop.
It is known that a group is more than the sum of its components. With this in mind, this pre-event workshop aims to offer young researchers from all over the world a space for interaction, giving rise to emergent behaviors. The participants will learn cutting-edge communication methods, exchange their different views on science, present their work, discuss it with their peers, and establish new and exciting ties with other young researchers. Being our view that skills can only be acquired and improved by directly using them in practical cases, the workshop will also focus on hands-on sessions specifically designed to promote collaboration. Last but not least, the main social event of the workshop will take place on Sunday in one of the beautiful beaches of the Island of Mallorca.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Mallorca!
