Nedo never sleeps and comes back in the new year with a sooper-special event: Manlio De Domenico (Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain) is going to present his seminar “Multilayer Network Maps of Functional Human Brain” (sorry for previous wrong titles). Here is the abstract:
Understanding how the human brain is structured, and how its architecture is related to the function, is of paramount importance for a variety of applications, including, but not limited to, new ways to prevent, deal with and cure brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, and psychiatric disorders, such as Schizophrenia. The recent advances in structural and functional neuroimaging, together with the increasing attitude to interdisciplinary approaches involving computer science, mathematics and physics, are fostering interesting results from computational neuroscience, that are quite often based on the analysis of complex network representation of human brain. In the last years, this representation experienced a theoretical and computational revolution that are breaching neuroscience, allowing to cope with the increasing complexity of human brain across multiple scales and in multiple dimensions, and to model structural and functional connectivity from new perspectives, often combined with each other.
In this talk we will discuss about one recently proposed approach, based on frequency decomposition, to represent the functional human brain as a multilayer network. We will briefly introduce the theoretical and computational tools required to analyze multilayer functional networks and we will show how this novel framework allows to distinguish between healthy and schizophrenic populations, achieving higher accuracy than conventional network approaches in clinical applications.
The seminar is going to be held in classroom 1 at 14 on the 31st of January, stay tuNEDO!
Nedo is glad to mention Mika for its struggle for presenting Nedo at Complex Networks 2016 in Milan. Due to a technical problem, his slides were downgraded to a previous version and the correct one was not displayed. So, he formally cannot be awarded as the actual winner, but his effort deserve to be mentioned.
next Monday 19th of December at 16 in classroom 2, Michele Campisi (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa) is going to held the seminar “Fluctuation relations: exact results in nonequilibrium thermodynamics”.
Participate and stay tuNed(o)!
Dear Nedoers, the sooper-hip seminar of Tommaso Gili is is coming, “Brain, Behavior and Complex Networks”.
The seminar is going to be held in classroom 2 at 17, next 1st of December. Stay tuned!
In any case, I’m pretty sure Tommaso is not a zombie, so you can bring your own brain safely, it is going to be welcome.
Let the children come to me.
In our intention, NEDO should be an opportunity to share ideas on the current research, discuss different points of view and, above all, a training ground for speakers: Nedoers are given the possibility to rehearse their talks with a friendly (and beers addicted) audience which provides feedbacks and suggestions, in order to be prepared to face bigger (and less friendly) audience at workshops and conferences. In this sense, we suggest PhD students to participate as speakers and as audience to experience both sides of the camp.
Following this line, after quite a long pause, NEDO comes back stronger than before with our Mika proposing us the results of his last endeavour, “Inferring monopartite wares relations in Economic Complexity: an entropy-based approach”. The seminar is going to be held in classroom 2 on the 23rd of November at 17.
You can be NEDO, just for one day.
Nedo is proud to announce the creation of the “NEDO Award”!
The first (non NEDO) seminar in which the NEDO can (which can be copied and pasted from the image below) appears in a slide, gets the award. As a heavyweight title, as soon as a new seminar presents the NEDO can, the title goes to the new speaker, as well as the prize. Of course, a slide cannot be used twice in order to get the Nedo Award back.
In order to have the prize (a copy of the original NEDO can) a photo (which is going to be published on this website) have to witness NEDO presence.
Ok, both the photo and the can could be better,
soon* something more beautiful will appear.
* Compared to the life of the Universe, i.e. ~14 billion years.
When I prepare a seminar, […] I always think about NEDO.
–Rossana Mastrandrea (acceptance speech for the CMPLXSSTMS award)
NEDO is very proud to greet Rossana for the award won for the best presentation at CCS’16 in Amsterdam! More photos can be found here.
Anyway, Ross have not offer yet any drinks to her colleagues to celebrate the award and it usually brings bad luck…
