IFISC offers a new predoctoral position, funded by the European Research Council through the ERC Starting Grant ARCTIC, on the reconstruction of functional complex networks representing the propagation of delays in air transport.
IFISC’s strategic objective is the study, exploration and development of information processing in and by complex systems. This comprises connecting existing approaches in different fields, developing common frameworks and the synthesis of novel information processing concepts. Within this context, ARCTIC proposes the study of air transport as an information processing system, in which information, for instance representing delays, is received, processed and redistributed by the different elements of the system. This requires, on the one hand, the application of techniques coming from computer science, statistical physics and neuroscience. On the other hand, results have to be expressed in economic terms, to understand the real impact that delays have in society, and the impact of propagation containment policies.
