24 February 2017

The CoeGSS project organised its first conference on Global Systems Science (GSS) in Lucca on 22nd and 23rd of February 2017 in order to evangelise the project’s vision as well as to foster discussions amongst the multi-national experts from Europe and the US.

The programme focused all areas of modern GSS research, reaching from practical topics such as epidemics, smart cities or financial network simulation up to theoretical aspects, like agent-based modelling and synthetic population generation. Dr. Bastian Koller gave an opening speech where he connected state-of-the-art GSS applications with the innovative use of High Performance Computing and High Performance Data Analytics.
