Upcoming and Past Seminars

"Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics"

The KIT Center "MathSEE" (Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics) pools the interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT since October 2018. The Collaborative Research Center 1173 "Wave Phenomena: Analysis and Numerics" and other existing cooperations form the basis for the establishment of MathSEE. Our members from the career level doctoral researcher onwards work together in exchange formats and interdisciplinary research projects structured in Method Areas. MathSEED through its umbrella graduate school offers a comprehensive program for early career researchers and master students to foster interdisciplinary training. Our graduate school KCDS provides structured program for doctoral students in computational and data science. MathSEE offers to strengthen interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT and its visibility.

Patent at MathSEE: Vibration damping system

Dr. Jimmy Alberto Aramendiz Fuentes and Prof. Alexander Fidlin have successfully obtained a patent from the German Patent and Trade Mark Office for a selectively acting vibration damping concept. One of the tasks of such a system is to reduce vibration amplitudes with high effectiveness and minimal energy losses.

For details we refer you to Prof. Fidlin.

Workshop: Economic and Financial Forecasting

Andrew Patton (Duke University) presented new methods for forecasting the volatility of financial returns in the keynote lecture of the workshop on December 5, 2023, from 2-7 p.m., at Blücherstraße 17, Karlsruhe. Nine short presentations by researchers from the HKMetrics network addressed further methodological and substantive issues related to forecasting in economics.

Ethics in the Lab. A Workshop for Early Career Researchers  on Scientific Misconduct and How to Avoid it [ONLINE WORKSHOP]

Ethics in the Lab. A Workshop for Early Career Researchers on Scientific Misconduct and How to Avoid it [ONLINE WORKSHOP]

May 16, 2024 9:00 - 13:00Online
What is the relation between good and successful research, on the one hand, and ethical and responsible research, on the other hand?
This workshop focuses on typical conflicts that particularly early career researchers may face in the context of a publish-or-perish culture: Is it okay for me to ignore and leave out statistical “outliers” when presenting my research data in case they impact the overall results more than I would like? Is such data “massaging” already scientific misconduct? How transparent must research practice be, when at the same time one has to succeed in the competitive world of scientific research? How to respond when you notice academic misconduct by a colleague? How should you handle problematic expectations of your supervisor?
In this workshop, however, we not only want to explain that these areas of conflict exist, but above all provide tools that can help you make your own decisions. We will do this by discussing realistic cases and using these cases to illustrate how easy it is to overlook important things and thus unintentionally overstep boundaries. In this way, participants can acquire the skills they need to recognise and avoid scientific misconduct. The workshop provides general skills and knowledge of research ethics needed for scientists to address the questions raised above. Participants attain the skills to rationally reflect on their role as a scientist from an ethical standpoint, including the specific expectations that role involves in a broader social context.
The workshop will show that successful research goes hand in hand with ethical and responsible research.
Please plan additional time for pre-workshop activities.
This event is open to doctoral researchers and postdocs at KIT who are KHYS members.
Technical requirements: To participate in this event, you need a stable internet connection, a webcam and a microphone. Participants will receive further detailed information regarding the online-platform prior to the event.
If you are unable to attend an event, please inform us promptly via e-mail. This way you are allowing your colleagues the opportunity to participate and you help us to maintain the quality of our Further Education Program. Thank you!
