From January 21 to 23, 2018 a group of PhD and MSc students and postdocs met at Hotel Rigi Kulm to interact, network and cross disciplinary boarders.

The participants who attended the Rigi workshop 2018 had all different backgrounds: ecology, microbiology, material science, cultural anthropology and others. However, all their research is about interactions and networks. The workshop consisted of five talks from experts from different research fields and disciplines:

  • The Web of Life: a database approach to characterize the structure and dynamics of ecological networks Dr. Miguel Fortuna, University of Zurich
  • Mutualistic interactions: Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Prof. Dr. Christoph Scheidegger, Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL
  • Complex networks of human und non-human elements in cultural anthropology PD Dr. Ina Dietzsch, University of Basel
  • Host-parasite interactions Prof. Dr. Daniel Croll, University of Neuchâtel
  • Coevolving networks: a computational approach to explore the role of coevolution in shaping biodiversity Dr. Miguel Fortuna, University of Zurich

Furthermore, the participant integrated the inputs of the experts and their own knowledge in a group work. They thought about network and interaction concepts, developed models, formalized them and finally interpreted and presented the results. Additionally, all participants presented their own research projects during a poster session. This was the ideal opportunity to discuss the projects with other students and with experts form different disciplines.
