Sociophysics and Infophysics

Serge Galam, a pioneer of the application of concepts and models from theoretical physics to social phenomena visited the VKS and discussed possibilities to better understand the survival of innovations (in a broad sense reaching from new ideas to new technologies) under unfavorite conditions. Serge who has contributed to understanding the dynamics of societal debates such as around global warming has recently also published in the field of scientometrics.

Joining forces - becoming visioneers

Scientists with a background in mathematics, physics, computer sciences and information sciences join forces to develop visions about how to better understand and maybe even influence complex social systems.
A project at the ETH Zurich invites scholars from all disciplines to submit ideas, comments, problems and possible projects.
