The Netherlands Platform Complex System (NPCS) has granted funds for two workshops to be hosted by the IAS.
Both workshops are part of the institute’s current research themes – Tipping Points in Man-Made vs. Natural Systems and The Interplay between Sociology and Physiology in Health Systems.
The first workshop, titled “Use of Complexity Science Methods for the Inclusion of Systemic Risk in the Valuation and Risk Management of Financial Derivatives”, aims to investigate the potential applications of complexity science in financial derivatives. It will feature keynote talks by leading field experts, explaining recent developments in derivative markets.
The second workshop, titled “Enhancing Immune Fitness: Where to start?”, explores possible methodological approaches to model complexity and dynamics of immune fitness. By the end of this workshop, the principal investigators aim to identify essential components to model “optimal immune fitness” in society.
