CR Swart Auditorium
During the third Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program, participants carried out collaborative research projects at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein in South Africa.
The projects relate both to their doctoral studies and to IIASA research that uses systems analysis methods to address major societal problems. Each young scientist worked with a collaborating team of advanced researchers, including one researcher from South Africa and the other from the IIASA or IIASA's research network. At the workshop they will present their work carried out during the program.
Talks are scheduled for Thursday, 29 January, from 8:00 to 15:00 and for Friday, 30 January, from 9:00 to 11:00 Austrian time.
The 15-minutes presentations will be followed by 5-minute discussions.

About the Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program
The SA-YSSP is an annual three-month initiative that contributes to the establishment, growth and enhancement of high level strategic research networks internationally. Launched in 2011 by Minster Pandor, SA-YSSP develops capacity in systems analysis at the PhD, postdoctoral and supervisory levels through research conducted in the areas of the DST grand challenges, and aligned with current research programmes at IIASA. Hosted by the University of the Free State, this third year of the 3-month course brought together 25 scholars from 20 nationalities.
