It’s been a hot summer but at HITS we’ve been hard at work. In July, we celebrated our bi-annual Alumi Meeting and hosted the COMBINE conference with close on 100 participants from all over the world. At the same time a substantial group of HITSters made sure they didn’t miss out on fitness and fun by taking part in the NCT run. Read this and more – including a portrait of our current Journalist in Residence Andreas von Bubnoff – in the latest edition of “The Charts” (issue 36), now available online.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
