Congratulations to Artemy Kolchinsky a brand new PhD in 2015 in the Complex Systems track of the Informatics PhD Program. Artemy’s PhD Dissertation is entittled “Measuring Scales: Integration and Modularity in Complex Systems“.
Read new papers from CASCI on developing the mathematical toolbox available to deal with computing distances on weighted graphs, applying distance closures for computational fact checking, and computing multi-scale integration in brain networks:

Congratulations to Filippo Radicchi for winning the First Junior Scientific Award from the Complex Systems Society (CCS), which unveiled the winners of the first CSS scientific awards in a packed plenary session at ECCS’14 in Lucca, Italy. CSS also honored Prof. Eugene Stanley with the Senior Scientific Award, and Dr. Giovanna Miritello with a second Junior Scientific Award. Quoting the nomination:
Filippo Radicchi is among the best young researchers in complex systems and networks, with contributions that span from theoretical studies of structural and dynamical properties of networks to analyses of large-scale empirical data about human behaviour and performance.
We could not agree more.
On Friday, April 18 the ISI Foundation and CRT Foundation announced the winners of the First Lagrange Prize: Brian Arthur and Yakov Sinai for their contributions to the science of complex systems, and Philip Ball for his contributions to the promotion of complexity as a popular science writer. The award ceremony took place in the gorgeous Stupinigi Royal Hunting Palace. In the photo, Brian Arthur is giving his acceptance address; the panel included Angelo Miglietta, Giovanni Ferrero and Andrea Comba of CRT Foundation, Mario Rasetti and Tullio Regge (General Secretary and President of ISI Foundation), and Enrico Bellone of Le Scienze. Following the ceremony there was a delicious dinner and a fun dance.
No, it’s not an Italian spin-off of the popular TV show. CSI Piemonte is organizing a meeting on Understanding Complexity: a Journey through Science to be held November 22-23 at the Lingotto Convention Center here in Torino. We will have demos and posters on 6S, GiveALink, and the egalitarian effect of search engines. I look forward in particular to seeing my good old friend Dario and my mentor, Domenico.
