KEYNOTES
PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT D'ENGINEYRIA QUÍMICA AT UNIVERSITAT ROVIRA I VIRGILI Dr. Marta Sales Pardo is a faculty in SEESLAB: Science and Engineering of Emerging Systems. She is notable for her contributions to complex networks, where she has studied both social and biochemical systems, especially the contribution of each node or individual to the overall network. SEESLAB research addresses fundamental problems in all areas of science including natural, social and economic sciences. They have expertise in a broad set of tools from statistical physics, network science, statistics and computer science. 

PROFESSOR, HELMHOLTZ INSTITUTE FOR FUNCTIONAL MARINE BIODIVERSITY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OLDENBURG (HIFMB) Dr. Thilo Gross makes complexity simple using nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics, complex networks and data science. In his work he applies a wild combination of nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics, complex networks and data science to almost everything. His focus is on understanding complex systems in biology, business, social interactions, and particulary in ecology. He is particularly well known for developing new approaches to complex systems, such as generalized models and adaptive networks. 

PROFESSOR, NIELS BOHR INSTITUTE, UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN MOGENS HØGH JENSEN The complexity of life Dr. Mogens Hogh Jensen is a Professor of Complex Systems and Biophysics at the Niels Bohr Institute’s Biocomplexity group.He studies complex phenomena in nature in a broad sense. In particular, chaos, fractals and oscillations in nonlinear systems. He has received several prizes most notably the Norwegian physics prize ‘Gunnar Randers’ handed over in 2011 by King Harald V of Norway.
