This is a Satellite designed for Young Researchers, by Young Researchers. We give the opportunity to PhD students and to PostDocs to present their work to other young researchers participating in the Satellite. Moreover we promote the communication between the Young Researchers and the Senior Researchers and Professors. Finally we are aiming to the realization of a Job Market related to Academia and the Private Sector.

What is YRNCS Satellite @ ECCS’14?

YRNCS Satellite @ ECCS’14 is a Satellite organized by the Young Researchers Network on Complex Systems (YRNCS) and its aim is to bring together the community of young researchers who work on Complex Systems. With this initiative we want to promote the creation of a big community of young researchers and scientists who will exchange ideas and consult each other, who can work together and build the basis of future collaborations.

Three Days Event


Presentations Session

September 21st, 18:00 – 20:00

The Young Researchers will present their work to each other, either in the form of a speed talk or in the form of a live computer demonstration. The duration of each presentation will be 5 or 10 minutes (+3 min for questions). The goal of the presentation session is to provide an informal environment to give young researchers starting in the academic world the opportunity to present their work in front of other fellow students as a basis for further discussion and exchange.
The location is Palazzo Ducale at Lucca. http://www.palazzoducale.lucca.it/
We invite Master and PhD students, and early PostDocs, to participate! In order to present your work, you will need to send us an abstract about your work. Deadline for abstract submission is September 14th. Notification of acceptance will be sent out the latest on September 15th.
However we would like to ask from the Young Researchers who would like to attend the meeting, even if they do not wish to present, to fill in the application form!

Panel Discussion Session

September 24th, 18:00 – 20:00

Fellow scientists, professors and researchers would discuss with the young researchers about career issues, starting from their own experiences and answering to their questions. The goal is to bring the Young Researchers in contact with Senior Researchers in an informal way so that the Young researchers can feel free to seek answer in their questions regarding the research world in general and specifically the one of the Complexity Science. This event will take place at the Conference’s Venue.

Last year’s panelists were: Alain Barrat, Paul Bourgine, David Chavalarias, Pierre Collet, Carlos Gershenson, Petter Holme, Jeffrey Johnson, Jure Leskovec, Yamir Moreno, Nicola Perra, Maria Angeles Serrano and Alessandro Vespignani.
Among the topics that emerged last year there were:

  • How is it like to be a young researcher working on Complex Systems?
  • What are the possibilities opening ahead?
  • How would a young researcher make the choice on which field of Complex Systems to work on?
  • What are the decisions he/she has to take?
  • Is there a safe – easy route?
  • How can he/she become a successful researcher?
  • What is the advice senior researchers and professors would give to young researchers?
  • What are the main topics scientists on complex systems work on?
  • How are different scientific fields united to serve the science of complex systems?
  • How to deal with gender issue in science?
  • How do you balance career and life?
  • Who is a complex system scientist?
  • Pros and cons of private sector vs academic positions?

This year’s panelists will be: Vittoria Colizza, Ginestra Bianconi, Renaud Lambiotte, Alex Arenas and Dirk Helbing.

We would like to ask from the Young Researchers who wish to attend the Panel Session to register filling in the application form.

Job Fair

September 25th, 18:00 – 20:00

YRNCS Job Fair @ ECCS’14 is an effective opportunity for young scholars to meet, network with, and interview with research labs and companies that are looking for smart and bright new minds.

It is also a great opportunity for students to gain insight on what employment opportunities exist and what employers are looking for in qualified candidates.

The YRNCS Job Fair is then targeted towards Master/PhD students and early postdocs in order to make the information on career openings circulate in the frame of ECCS’14 and facilitate the access to such positions. The aim is to give to the Young Researchers the opportunity to learn about open positions in academia and in various private organizations.
