Invited Keynote speakers
Robert Gray Dodge Professor of Network Science and Distinguished University Professor of Physics at Northeastern University, Boston, USA
A major contributor to the development of network science and the statistical physics of complex systems, Albert-László Barabási directs the Center for Complex Network Research of Northeastern University, and holds appointments in the Departments of Physics and College of Computer and Information Science, as well as in the Department of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women Hospital in the Channing Division of Network Science, and is a member of the Center for Cancer Systems Biology at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Professor of Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, USA
Dariusz Stramski has founded the Ocean Optics Research Lab in 1997 at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. His research has provided significant findings in the areas of ocean optics, optical remote sensing of the oceans, and optical applications to oceanography. In 2014, he co-founded MANTA Instruments Inc., successfully commercializing novel patented technology to characterize nanoparticles. His presentation will provide an overview of some key questions with regard to ubiquitous presence of nanoparticles in marine environments and advancements in techniques for nanoparticle measurements and characterization, including MANTA's technology of nanoparticle tracking analysis which has broad applications extending beyond oceanography and environmental sciences.
