Open Data and Data Management - Issues and Challenges

The SCNAT is organizing this one day event in Bern, with the aim to give the research community the chance to raise their concern and also the SNF and the European Commission to present their view and to inform about recent trends. The workshop should provide recommendations on how to implement the open data requirements.

100 years of the general theory of relativity

Vor hundert Jahren, im November 1915, publizierte Albert Einstein seine bahnbrechenden Arbeiten zur Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. Aus diesem Anlass findet vom 12.-14. November 2015 an der ETH Zürich ein Symposium statt, das die Bedeutung dieser Arbeiten bis hin zur heutigen Forschung auf vielfältige Weise beleuchtet.

Rigi-Workshop 2015

The Rigi Workshop 2015 brought together mathematics, computer science and biology. The aim of this workshop was to present interesting, cutting-edge topics from the life sciences which require mathematical modeling to PhD students working at Swiss universities. Mathematical modeling is becoming more and more instrumental in life sciences; the data complexity and the high number of interacting components, from molecules to animals, render intuitive reasoning very difficult. The idea consists in formulating mathematically how certain biological units affect each other and how these interactions affect the whole system. Such quantitative modeling approaches produce mathematical models which are then implemented using computer software.

Rigi-Workshop 2011

Biological machines are touted to offer novel technological strategies provided that their mechanisms can be understood and replicated outside the cellular context (see for instance G.M. Whitesides, Sci. Am., 2001). The principles of how molecular motors, biological nanopores, structural elements etc. operate not only provide profound insights into our understanding of cellular function, but can also have a practical impact on molecular device development for applications in health, security and the environment.
