Tuesday 14th June, 9:00 – 13:00 EEST

Location: Oodi Library (Maijansali lecture hall), Helsinki, Finland

N.B. the live video streaming will be available on the date of the event from 9:00 EEST



9:00 – 9:10 - Welcome Introduction by Algorithmiq’s CEO Professor Sabrina Maniscalco

9:10 – 10:00 - Network Medicine: Novel Approach to Human Disease and Therapeutics

Professor Joseph Loscalzo – Harvard Medical School

Professor Joseph Loscalzo is Hersey Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Chairman of the Department of Medicine, and Physician-in-Chief at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Prof. Loscalzo is recognized as an outstanding cardiovascular scientist, clinician, and teacher. He has received many awards, including the Clinician-Scientist Award, the Distinguished Scientist Award, the Research Achievement Award, and the Paul Dudley White Award from the American Heart Association. Together with Prof. Barabasi, he is one of the fathers of the emerging field of Network Medicine.

10:50 – 11:40 – Networks, Scales, and Symmetries

Professor Mariangeles Serrano – University of Barcelona

M. Ángeles Serrano is an ICREA Research Professor at the Dept. of Condensed Matter Physics of the University of Barcelona (UB). She obtained her Ph.D. in Physics at UB, and a master in mathematics for finance from the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica CRM. She is a founding member of Complexitat, the Catalan network for the study of complex systems, and a promoter member of UBICS, the UB Institute of Complex Systems. Professor Serrano is a world-leading expert in Complex Network Science. Her work focuses on the role of space in real networks, producing maps in a hidden geometry where distance measures the likelihood of interactions and enables multiscale unfolding. She is also renowned for her research on multilayer networks in which different types of interactions or nodes coexist. Applications of her work cover a wide variety of real systems, from biological to economic and socio-technological systems. 

11:40 – 12:30 - Network Quantum Information Processing

Professor Antonio Acin - ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences

Antonio Acín is an ICREA Research Professor at ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences. He has a degree in Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and in Telecommunication Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. He got his PhD in Theoretical Physics in 2001 from the UB. After a post-doctoral stay in Geneva, he joined ICFO in 2003. At ICFO, Acín leads the Quantum Information Theory group. Professor Acín is a world expert in quantum information theory, a highly inter-disciplinary area combining tools and concepts from mathematics, computer science, physics and engineering. He is one of the inventors of device-independent quantum key-distribution, a milestone in the field of quantum cryptography. He has also contributed significantly to research in the novel field of complex quantum networks. His research activity also covers aspects of foundations of quantum physics, quantum thermodynamics, many-body physics and quantum optics.
