2nd Conference of ISC Members
The second Conference of the International Scientific Council (ISC) of the University of Rijeka, entitled The Future Is Now – Science For a Better Future, will be held on Monday, July 23, 2018, at the Rijeka City Hall, starting at 10.30 am.
The Conference will be opened by Prof. Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, Ph.D., University of Rijeka Rector, who will also participate in a panel discussion, and Mr. Vojko Obersnel, M.Sc., City of Rijeka Mayor.
Once again, the Conference gathers ISC members – prestigious Croatian scientists currently working at universities around the world:
Prof. Ivan Đikić, M.D., Ph.D., Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany,
Prof. Danica Kragić Jensfelt, Ph.D., KTH Royal Institute for Technology in Stockholm, Sweden,
Prof. Vedran Mimica, M.Arch., Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, US,
Prof. Željko Ivezić, Ph.D., University of Washington, US (will join via Skype).
The Conference will be moderated by Mr. Željko Ivanković, editor incumbent of academic website Ideje.hr.
The aforementioned scientists will discuss some current social topics and, by combining the impressive results they have achieved in their scientific work, link their scientific achievements to some fascinating opportunities that science increasingly offers, primarily in the fields of their interests, i.e. personalized medicine, artificial intelligence, urban transition, etc. This is inevitably connected to possible obstacles that can arise, such as the preservation of privacy, changes in professional relationships, and probably interpersonal relationships as well. This will be a kind of introduction to a stronger debate in the second part of the Conference when Prof. Željko Ivezić, Ph.D., will join the discussion via Skype and talk about his impressive achievements in the field of astrophysics.
This is a continuation of some sort of the first Conference of ISC members, held on July 6, 2018, entitled Science First – Science, Not Prejudice.
