Data Science & Systems Complexity Symposium

Center for Data Science & Systems Complexity

This symposium on 11 June marks the opening of the Centre for Data Science & Systems Complexity to which you are cordially invited. The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen (RUG) has identified Data Science and Systems Complexity (DSSC) as a core research theme. It concerns a research cluster of 60+ researchers in a number of basic disciplines (mathematics, computer science, artificial intelligence, systems & control, engineering, astronomy) and scientific application domains (genomics, pharmacology, instrumentation). It is their ambition to combine data science and complexity science.
