Wednesdays@NICO

Wednesdays@NICO is a vibrant weekly seminar series focusing broadly on the topics of complex systems and data science.  It brings together attendees ranging from graduate students to senior faculty who span all of the schools across Northwestern, from applied math to sociology to biology and every discipline in-between. This seminar series not only brings some of the top researchers in complex systems from around the country to NICO, but also stimulates interdisciplinary discussion and eventually collaborations. Please join us on Wednesdays at noon!
