Young Scientist Symposium 2013- Understanding Shape: in silico and in vivo
The postdocs and PhD students from IST Austria proudly announce the Young Scientist Symposium 2013, an interdisciplinary one-day symposium entirely organized by young scientists. This year's title of the YSS is <strong>"Understanding Shape: In silico and in vivo"</strong>. Attendance to the event is free of charge.
The concept of shape touches many areas of research and has been approached by a variety of different methodologies in developmental and evolutionary biology, mathematics, computer vision, and neuroscience, which makes it an ideal topic for dynamic and interdisciplinary exchange. We aim at a broad audience from many fields of research that is interested in developing a general understanding of formation, perception, and description of shape across disciplines.
