MATH+ young researcher colloquium CHANGES+ kicks off with COPAN talk

The newly established bi-weekly young researcher colloquium CHANGES+ CHange AgeNts: Governing Earth and Society+ kicked off last week with a talk by COPAN's Marc Wiedermann on A network-based microfoundation of Granovetter's threshold model for social tipping (preprint arXiv:1911.04126 [physics.soc-ph]).

This colloquium is organised by young researchers from the Math+ emerging fields Particles and Agents (EF4) and Concepts of Change (EF5) including the COPAN-associated PhD students Lucie Helfmann and Sarah Hiller. The aim is to bring together scientists from different disciplines and parts of Berlin who are interested in modeling social, historical, and political/societal change processes with a special focus on the driving agents (individuals, other entities, or groups thereof).

Presentations will take place approximately bi-weekly, on Thursday afternoons at 4pm c.t. in the seminar room of Zuse Institute Berlin (Dahlem).
