Invitation: Workshop "Interdisciplinary perspectives on change" on September 21st and 22nd, 2023
As part of our WIN project "(De-)stabilizing change," we are organizing an international workshop on "Interdisciplinary perspectives on change" on September 21st and 22nd, 2023. We are delighted to announce that we have managed to attract outstanding scientists from various disciplines who will share their experiences with us. Professor Hans-Jörg Rheinberger from the Max Planck Society will deliver a keynote speech. Professor Britta Nestler (KIT), Professor Robin Hiesinger (FU Berlin), and Professor Brian Pentland (Michigan State University) will participate in an expert panel to reflect on the topic of change. The goal of the workshop is to stimulate interdisciplinary exchange on processes of change.
Hans-Jörg Rheinberger is a scientific member of the Max Planck Society and former director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. He is also a member of the Leopoldina. His work focuses on the history and epistemology of experimentation in the life sciences. Britta Nestler is the head of the Institute of Applied Materials - Microstructure Modeling and Simulation and the Microstructure Simulation department at the Institute of Nanotechnology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. In a dual role, she is also the head of the Institute of Digital Materials Research at Hochschule Karlsruhe. She is a member of the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Her work focuses on computer-aided materials science, particularly microstructure simulation in the field of materials engineering. Her research has been recognized with numerous scientific awards, such as the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize awarded by the German Research Foundation. Robin Hiesinger studied biology and philosophy and is a professor at Freie Universität Berlin. He investigates the mechanisms of neuronal network formation in fruit flies and is particularly interested, within the scope of an ERC project, in how flexibility and robustness in development can be ensured. Brian Pentland is the Main Street Capital Corporation Intellectual Capital Professor at Michigan State University. His work lies at the intersection of organizational theory and information systems research, focusing particularly on the study of organizational routines and processes.
