Annually, from 1 June to 31 August, IIASA hosts up to 50 doctoral students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).  YSSP participants undertake a three-month summer project on a topic related to the IIASA research agenda.

The US National Member Organization for IIASA has organized a virtual meeting featuring YSSP 2019 participants Felicia Chiang and Nicolas Choquette-Levy who will share details about research they conducted at IIASA and their experiences of the YSSP. Chiang and Chouquette-Levy were awarded the annual YSSP Peccei and Mikhalevic awards for the YSSP respectively, for the outstanding papers they produced.

The webinar will be interactive with opportunities for attendees to ask questions.

Prospective US applicants are encouraged to attend but all potential applicants are welcome.
